it's often due to students jumping into something and not being as conscious of the need ton show the admin folks that the project can be an asset long term rather than a temporary obstruction. this was what i observed at OSU; student projects where always considered to be at most a 4 year inconvenience. Most times Professors are not involved so projects get done a little hap hazard. not a big problem but substantial when we are speaking of administrations looking to save money. it costs as much to remove a project as to build a project.

I keep thinking of the stacking functions of rocket mass heater, oven, forge and kiln. Do you have a syllabus or something like it that could be submitted to the dean in my division? If it were to be added to the curriculum as a sculptural workshop
I find the barrel actually rather endearing, kinda steampunk.
