This is the second road test of the portable Raku Kiln shown in SketchUp drawings. As you can see the design has changed. A good friend had make the comment, " wouldn't it be cool if it were motorized". Well I've had some bike parts laying around for several years, so you know how that goes. There is still quite a bit to go on this project. I thought I'd show this because I haven't put a new SketchUp design on my blog for a while. Now you know why

Display of current project. This is a welded model of a Raven just after the moment of takeoff. At this point the basic skeletal form and the center spires of the wing and tail feathers are in place. The piece will be just short of 6' wing span.

This is a design for a portable ceramic kiln. It is for reduction firings. I'm 1/2 the way through the actual construction of this kiln. It will be used for personal as well as class work.
