Re-purposed washing machine drum............
The stainless steel in a discarded washing machine drum is wonderfully versatile.

The 1/4 size cast iron pot always poses a challenge to keep it simmering. A brazier of the appropriate size is the answer.

Use gloves the stainless steel edges are sharp!!

    Step 2

    Roll the material to form a cylinder of the appropriate diameter and fasten the overlap together with 4mm stainless steel set screws and nuts - the countersunk ones are perfect but not essential.

  • Step 3

    Place the cylinder in a earthenware drip saucer for potted plants. I found a perfect size for the project.

    Then pour a concrete mix into the saucer and let it set.

    Step 4

    Light some charcoal chunks inside the cylinder and place your pot on the top.

    This will burn at an even temperature for hours!
