Kiln Construction

With having to conduct remote learning from home, there has been time to begin work on constructing my two wood burning kilns. One will be a small down-draft, and the other will be a tunnel kiln. They will use a common chimney. The kilns are built on a gravel base that is four feet deep, and consists of packed  #1 and #2 stone. Below are some images in this early stage of construction.

Due to the amount of dead weight of the chimney, I poured a concrete base.
