Or maybe he took an old wood stove and just lined the inside with masonry or ceramic and insulation so the metal wouldnt go molten on him and used that as his firebox.

You could even support the whole complex of metal and concrete with three crosswise T bars. Tho, remember, that theses should not be mortared in. and have expansion space lengthwise. Usually, you fit these in slots cut into the bricks, filled with a bit of superwool or rockwool.
