I continued working on the cabin last weekend
and completed another wall.
Kelly helped me by painting some of the boards.
I probably will not get anymore done this year as the night time temperature is now dropping below freezing and it is therefore too cold to paint.
Today at work I have designed and built a rustic bench, together with the teenagers I have working with me.
At home I have been experimenting with making a ‘fancy feast’ type alcohol stove.
I bought a tin of mushroom paste, an aluminium water bottle and the fibreglass material from a fire blanket to use as a wick
I had seen the fire blanket used by someone in a YouTube video but I was disappointed with it as its wicking properties were very poor, so instead I have used lamp wick.
The aluminium flask was too big so I used a sweet corn tin instead.
I am pleased with the end result, but the burner is a little too large so I will try to make a smaller version.
