Nifty, LeNeveu2. Could you go into a short bit of detail on how you do that and where the wood-ash lye comes into it? I produce a lot of acorn flour, so I end up with huge amounts of tannin and a boiled concentrate does a great deal of the treatment on my hides. But I'm curious about other ways people tan their hides.
I like these things. I've made them and used them for cooking out in the woods. Keep the lid and flatten it back down, then punch a hole in the center big enough for the wick, and place that on top with the wick poking out. That way, you can reduce the amount of flame and it makes a more efficient cooking device or a longer-lasting light source.

Great job and great explanations! Thank you, I'll be looking at this as one of the parts of the one I'm planning to make. By the way, the solution to your in-between-box insulation is PERLITE. Doesn't hold heat, but it's awesome insulation that takes far greater heat than you'll generate--thousand degrees F or higher. It's 90 degrees outside and I am NOT going to turn our oven on if I can avoid it, so this is how I'm hoping to get our pizzas cooked!
We're experiencing a terrible infestation of emerald ash borer here in Madison, Wisconsin, so the City Forestry has to go around and cut down many, many street trees. I've just discovered the ability to peel off the cambium with a knife and some string! Yah-hoo! Ash trees, since they're not a sustainable material for bark-harvest, aren't typically used in bark crafts, but I figured I'd see what I can make. Why not? Poor trees are dead, might as well not waste the materials. Of course, I will bake the finished product in a dry heat to be SURE there are no ash-borer eggs or larva still hanging around! Now I'm trying to figure out how to get the cambium separated from the bark--it's a very fibrous and flexible layer, so I'm thinking it would make a good craft material. Anyone have any ideas about that?
