In this video, we learn how to repurpose metal barrels for DIY projects. The focus is on the type of barrels with removable lids and the ones where the lid and top are one solid piece of metal. It explains how to remove the lid from the solid type barrel and emphasizes the importance of using a one-time use barrel if possible. Showing how the lids are attached to the barrel and how to grind them off to reuse them. We learn about the concept of tabbing on the ends of the outer barrel to create a set distance between the inner and outer barrels, providing a useful guide for repurposing metal barrels and turning them into rocket powered wood ovens.
nothing beats office politics like productivity. Or maybe a tiny ad:
