Here is a shop heater I made for my machine shop. It was made by using a wood drum and and a few odds and ends. Here is the finished result.


And here it is installed in the shop.

Thanks Guys! Some of the weathering was done by putting a little brown paint on it and then wiping most of it of with a towel, Leaving brown paint along the rims. The rest of it was weathered by dry brushing it with brown.

Hope this helps.

Very nice, I would not have guessed that the final result was so good based on what you started with :) I like the scale wood pile too!

Ingenious! Mind if I swipe the idea? Excellent weathering.

As one who's grown up using wood heat, might I offer a suggestion: stoves tend to drop hot coals on the floor--though you've placed the damper up top--so a piece of simulated metal underneath might be worth considering. Just a thought.
