A couple weeks ago I received my kiln which was shipped on a wooden pallet. Of course, since Iâ€™m so resourceful (and cheap) I decided not to throw away or burn such a great collection of wood, I decided to turn it into something useful. And the way I have my kiln room (garage) set up, I decided a shelf would be quite nice under the end of the workbench and next to the kiln. The more I thought about it, the more inconvenient it seemed until I remembered that there was a great invention a little while agoâ€¦. The wheel! So I turned the pallet, along with a couple pieces of extra wood and some wheels into the Kiln Cart. It is actually really sturdy and efficient. I havenâ€™t actually fired the kiln since I have made the cart but it gets all the kiln stuff out of the way easily.
This has the potential to be a great weekend, not just because Monday is Presidentâ€™s day and I donâ€™t have to go to schoolâ€¦. My dad is also planning to come down and put up some clay studio walls.
