It is supported on a few 5 gal buckets
Step 2: Body/hull
I made the body from a turkey pan, a big pan basically
I cut a. Hole in the center of the pan for the air supply/bellows. I put a pipe flange and pipe in through the bottom of the pan. I use a hair dryer to supply more air to the fire
I filled in the pan about half full with clay and left a bowl shape around the pipe
I Cut a slot in the side for longer pieces of metal , add a grate on top of the hole to stop your fuel from falling in
Smooth the clay and let it dry then light your first fire in the center to cure it completely
I use hardwood lump charcoal to fuel my forge
