    I ground the blade etc. then started chopping random objects to make sure it will do what it should when I put it all together.

    What's the heat source? O/A torch?

    The barrels are lined with 1" thick 8# simwool. It is fired with a weed burner.

    Here it is hanging in my living room. I still need to do a few things. But, I figured I wouldn't mind staring at it during commercials.
