Enc List, there is1] now a picture of the raised firehearth [copied from one in a re-created Viking house at Jorvik] I threw-together in a Saturday morning's frantic work in May, 2004 - when our group realised we needed a portable firehearth, and heard just that our next display-ground would mean placing the fire-spot in a gravelled public-car park, temporarily closed for the event.There are hidden air-holes [in the ends] to ventilate the enclosed space underneath, - and so far - there has been no scorching of the grass underneath, even after 3 day's use at a "camp" - which is as long as we have done so far in our little isle.The whole thing dismantles into 8 boards, the steel firetray, & 15sq.ft of THICK asbestos sheet, on which we put a 3" layer of sand, on which to build the fire. The cooks like it - much back-ache is avoided thereby.and2] I just uploaded a picture of a couple of takedown chests, "in the white" - one assembled, and one dismantled. I expect the Moderators will "pass" that into my album in the next 24 hrs or so.
