Step 3--The Kiln Bottom

This is the easiest part of building the fiber lined garbage can raku kiln. Place the can on the fiber and trace around the perimeter with a magic marker. I set the can on the edge of the end of the roll and the side. This allowed me to save about a 4 inch by 4 foot pieces of fiber for future use in some other project. "Waste not, Want not."

Cut two rounds pieces out for the bottom of the kiln. This makes it possible to use a single piece of fiber for the main interior part of the kiln. Once the pieces are cut, gently place each round in the bottom of the can, one piece on top of the other.
