Paint Box Charcoal

For some fun and as an experiment in Bush Craft I made some charcoal in a paint tin. I was using the oil drum design but in a smaller scale. I started with a paint tin and popped in a couple of copper pipes for vents before filling it with wood.

Next I build an fire and with the paint tin loaded on set it alight.

Once the fire had gone out I let it all cool down (this is important) the paint tin could be opened and the results seen.
