Hello,

Is this possible? Any tips to experiment with such? As an experiment I was thinking something with around 1.5 cubic meters.

Thanks!

Howdy Trimbitas welcome to permies. Check out this video and see if the kiln he makes is what you are thinking of.





Were you thinking of making one out of earth bags or cob?
