Building a maple evaporator

This has been our way of boiling sap in past years.  We have wanted to buy a little half pint from Leader then Ant had an idea... He will make one from our old tank. 

He borrowed a stainless steel welder

cut our old stainless tank down

Began adding the dividers

and welded away

Great Job honey but you better hurry the trees are dripping...

Bracing the fire box with angles

Adding the flue

cutting out the fire door on the fire box

Leveling and adding the fire bricks to the fire box

Man GO make FIRE!
