New Propane Forge Advice


This will be my first attempt at building a propane forge, so any constructive advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

I’m currently collecting materials for the build and I came across this steel pipe.

It’s approximately 14" in diameter, and I’m planning to cut it 16" in length.

My question is, if I plan to put 3" of insulation around the interior, would this still be too big for a 2-burner setup?

Nope! That looks perfect to me. If I were you, too, I’d actually put some weight on that forge body to make it an oval forge. You’ll be surprised how nice it is to get a little extra width in a forge body!
