The kiln builder's bible

Fredrick L. Olsen's practical guide to the construction, maintenance and repair of kilns is now bigger and more comprehensive than ever.

Olsen's bible for kiln builders now includes chapters on multi-directional and specialty kilns, and offers a few suggestions on what kilns may look like in the future.

"The Kiln Book" covers the principles of efficient design, building methods, refractory, materials, bricklaying procedures and instructions, fuels and firing systems, arches, flues, electric elements and general safety.

Olsen includes plans for firebox systems; coal, oil-drip and forced-oil burners; butane, propane and natural gas burners; and installation of pressure regulators and safety shutoff controls.

Complete plans and instructions are provided for building kilns of any size, shape or any purpose.
