Cool. I always thought about making one using that method. Do you plan to waterproof it?

I dont know if i would bother to paint it. Even high heat paint will burn off. I built a smoker and painted it. There is zero paint left on the firebox.

Going to put linseed oil on and dry it out so it will be water proof

That’s cool! I have wanted a tipi tent with a stove, but they seem so stinking expensive! I might just have to try and make one! You did a great job, thanks for the inspiration

Ya I think I’d look for something other than linseed oil for the waterproofing.
