I have been waiting a long time to get one small test kiln  for the firing of my test tiles, so I decided to build one. I have used soft jm26 bricks that can stand  1300ºc, and a 20x 30 cm refractory shelf.

During the first firing I realice that I must remove the piece arround the burner to let more air and a higher chimney to avoid a strong reduction


There are some photos line by line that maybe helpfull if you want to build one. Please, don’t hesitate to ask, I’ll be happy to explain you any detaill.

From above

And some especial pieces I’ve carved. The piece arround the burner

And the pieces that help the flame in its way from the combustion chamber to the charge layer
