The World's Fanciest Burn Barrel

Grandpa built it in his garage. He turns 89 this month. The cylinder is at least 1/8" steel.
The barrel has a rain lid and a screen lid to keep burning paper from flying off. It has a steel channel air draft to provide combustion air to the bottom of the barrel. The unit rotates on the stand to allow the ashes to be easily dumped into a wheelbarrow, or piled for later disposal.

A full moon over the pines. It always reminds me of the full moon that we saw the evening before Mikael was born.

  1. Grandpa sure has put his engineering and welding to use over the years. Always a project in the making. Countless projects that he's conquered. Very impressive.
