I don't have a wood kiln. But I may some day and if I do it will probably be a bourry box design*. If I do build that type of firebox I'll need a cool door and I just happened to find one this last week.
I can't tell ya where I 'found' it. There was a whole stove but it was in pretty bad shape. So bad that I was able to practically rip this part off with my bare hands! (flexing muscles as I write that). There were some little doors too and I may go back for them. And there's another stove as well, in even worse shape but harder to get to.
Anyhow I think this would make for a cool firebox door. I could pack the back with some fiber for added protection. I like the built in thermometer, not that it'd be of any use.
I unloaded the kiln last night. All these pots are going to a shop later in the week.
Off to assemble some boxes and to handle cups. Thanks for checking in.
*the other option would be an updraft bottle kiln, but that's another post.
