Hi, I am building a wood kiln like Peg Udal's designed by Will Ruggles
and am wondering if I shouild use the same arch/fire box size and double
chamber it? (Double the quantity of finished work for less than double
the effort and expense.) And if I do should I have an external fire box
and reduce the inside fire box sizes or keep the same size internal fire
boxes. Any built one of these recently? I'd love hearing about your
experiences. Thanks, Robin in WV.
