The hearth presented here can be safely used for making a fire. It has a removable upper part that can be installed if the flame is too large, and its height above the ground is about 20 centimeters, which is enough to prevent the grass underneath from catching fire.
Tools and materials:
-Metal barrel with cover;
-USHM; -Welding equipment; -Roulette;
-Capacity with a spray;
-Metal sheet; < br> Step one: markup
Initially, the master wanted to cut the barrel and weld the lower and upper parts. The middle part will be used to make the chimney and legs.
The master marks the barrel according to the drawing.
According to the markup, she sticks masking tape on the barrel.
Step two: cutting
Then cuts the barrel.
Step three: welding
Cleans the parts from paint before welding. Then it aligns the bottom and top and welds.
The master uses a semiautomatic device for welding.
Step four: legs
The master made the legs by cutting two rings, cut off from the barrel, into two parts. Then I welded them to the bottom of the product.
Step five: cap (lower part)
Two wide rings are about 20 cm wide. The master cuts each ring across into 7 equal parts. Then these 14 blanks were cut across. Thus, we have 28 blanks.
Next, you need to weld them into this shape.
This is done as follows.
First you need to bend the edge of one of the blanks. Using this part as a template, bend the rest of the workpieces. Then assemble the structure with overlapping parts and draw out the joint. Cut off the metal according to the markings. Assemble and weld parts.
Then he cuts a hole in the lid and welds the lower part of the cap to the lid.
Step six: cap (upper part)
After making the lower part of the cap, ten metal strips remain. After a little refinement (you need to cut off the strips on each side, forming a trapezoid), the master welds them to the bottom.
Now you need to weld the ring. The craftsman cuts it to the desired size, puts on the top of the cap and welds it on.
Step seven: cover
Now it remains to make a cover for the cap. It is made from the cut out middle part of the lid and the ring from the barrel.
Step eight: boot hole
Now you need to mark and cut a hole for loading fuel (firewood).
Step nine: decorative elements
Then the master cuts and welds decorative elements.
Strips free of paint remained at the welding sites. The master decided not to paint over them, but to give them a rusty look. To do this, he sprinkles the strips with vinegar. A day later these places were covered with rust.
Step ten: heat shield
In the lower part of the firebox, the master drilled several holes for water drainage. Then he put burlap on the bottom and covered it with sand. The heat shield additionally protects the vegetation under the bottom of the hearth from fire.
Everything is ready.
