Thank you CLAY TIMES- and especially Polly Beach and Lisa Post- for running the article on my kiln kontainer.
I have to mention a few things to keep in mind when thinking about a kiln kontainer. First, it's meant as a safety tool for people using kilns in residential situations. My friend, Rich, sells kilns and he estimates 3 out of 4 kilns go to folks in residential situations. If you are such a user, a kontainer something like the one described here might be for you. It offers safety from fumes and fires and provides a barrier for control of radient, conductive and convective radiation. If you have kids around...well, you get the picture. Think of it as a very small and secure kiln room.
If, by chance, you are interested in making a kiln kontainer, I have done my best to provide the information that will allow anyone with some basic skills and tools to assemble one. You will need a sheet metal man to do the fabrication. Find a sheet metal person that is online and tell him to pull up this site for construction suggestions. It should be as simple as telling the fabricator that you need one 16" wider than your kiln and 8 inches taller.. That's allowing 8" on all sides. (I am assuming your kiln is up on some kind of stand.)
Like I say, I have done my best to convey the info needed for anyone interested in my kontainer. But I have to say, that if you have questions or problems ask the sheet metal man. Not me, please. I don't have time to make pots as it is!
And for what it is worth, I will be posting something of great value to nearly all potters- no, all people- in August or September.
