Re: Concrete And Fire


No feedback at all? I am slightly shocked no one has a smartass comment or critique...

Re: Concrete And Fire


playing w/fire is always cool.

what is the burner? A griil burner or a piece of pipe w/holes drilled in it?

You do have regulator on the supply line?

Re: Concrete And Fire


No small animals as of yet. Copper with holes in it, the only regulator used in the pic was the valve on the propane tank but when its actually used there will be a secondary that has more control.

Re: Concrete And Fire


Nice concept. I can see using that when I sacrifice small animals. The woodchucks and rabbits have been destroying my garden the last couple of years.

Is this an original idea of yours?

Can we get a daylight pic of the work?

I like the rhythm of 3 questions so filled this space?

Good Luck
Dave

Re: Concrete And Fire


Original idea yes, for a design challenge. There are obviously other tables out there with fire coming out but the colors, shape, size, implementation all as original as anything can be anymore.

Closest to daylight I have here.

No Flames:


Right after demold:

Re: Concrete And Fire


Nice work. I like the contrast in color, probably a good idea with the burner installed.

Is that a vibrating table in you shop?

Good Luck
Dave

Re: Concrete And Fire


No vibrating table. No need. The face coat is sprayed eliminating most pin holes..the gray was a little dry this time and came out a little rough but the red was nice.

Re: Concrete And Fire


That's a pretty sharp contrast between the colors. How did you prevent them from bleeding into each other?

If it's too many questions just kick me aside. I'm playing with wet cast right now and haven't ventured into spraying, yet.

Good Luck
Dave

Re: Concrete And Fire


Questions are very welcome. I'm new to all of this and wouldn't be here if others didn't answer all of my questions. The gray was done first with a plug where the red is then red was done after. I would do the red first if I did it again.

Re: Concrete And Fire


Every time I look I think of something else. This concrete stuff can be addictive.

Any special considerations in the red mix? Thinking about the heat from the flame.

Good Luck
Dave

Re: Concrete And Fire


I feel the same way. My girlfriend says I have an issue. That mix can be in direct contact with 300c and the flame is far enough away it should not be an issue.
