    Re: Chiminea (outdoor wood stove)

    Why not weld the joints on the outside?

    Re: Chiminea (outdoor wood stove)

    Here is another question, any reason in particular to use 1/4" plate instead of 10 or 11 gauge?

    Bringing this thread back from the dead, as I am finally getting serious about making one of these. Do you really need 1/4" thick steel, or would you be fine with 3/16 or even 10ga?

    My first thought when I read this was, why not buy a full 4'x8' sheet, build TWO of them and sell one for the price of all your materials to build BOTH? Then you end up getting your's FREE, minus your labor, unless you want to add in a little more on the price for that, too. AND you get the rest of the steel left over for whatever else you may find to do with it.

    That don’t sound like a bad idea but at the moment I’m not able to risk floating the material costs until one sells. Other consideration is I’m not sure of the market in my area for one of these. If I knew I had someone wanting one and willing to put some money down towards material cost then I’d be all for it. Honestly though I’d rather build and sell both. I don’t sit outside in the cold next to a firebit very often. At the time I posted about this I was looking for cheaper yet better than store bought alternatives for my lady.

    I used 11ga and it turned out great. Here is the one i ended up making, slightly modified the design but happy with the outcome. I got three pits out of a sheet of 4x8 11 ga.

    They are 7.5" sides on the squares and hexagons.

    I prefer a non welded flue. I made my flue opening for 6'' standard flue pipe on my Darth Vader one. When not in use you can remove pipe and add a cap for rain/snow protection.

    You can install a damper too.

    CNC plasma table is ready man. Just let me know. Inkscape does hexagons, no thinking here.

    That ruler tool is cool too. Just drag it over the shape and it gives you the dimensions. Press space bar for it to go away and space bar to display them again.

    Awesome project! That looks a very sturdy one. Gonna show this to my uncle, I'll come over this weekend to help him install the skid plates and jeep running boards on his current Wrangler project. He got some metal scraps to we can turn into something. This might be a great idea.

    Re: Chiminea (outdoor wood stove)

    Can you use inkscape for layout purposes, ie see how many hexagon and square pieces i can fit on a 4x8' sheet of steel?

    You could do it in sheetcam --> duplication or Inkscape if you set your work canvas to the 4 x 8 dimensions. I have a shortcut in Inkscape that that has the 4 x 8 table saved and uses inches so you don't have to set the options all the time.

    doesnt really answer my question. i know they showed the layout in the first post, but what i am trying to do is play around with the layout to maximize the material for making multiple pits.
