    About This Video:
    I built a kiln from bricks for the purpose of firing bricks. I started by using a brick mold made of fired clay from a previous video and made bricks from clay. The bricks were allowed to dry and were then transported to my hut using a brick carrying harness I made from cane and a piece of wood. They were dry stacked onto the wall of the hut to keep them out of the rain while waiting to be fired. I then constructed a brick kiln using mud as a mortar for adhering the bricks together. The kiln had 2 fireboxes side by side and was of the updraft kiln type. The kiln was open at the front and back so it could be stoked from these areas. This gave a more consistent firing I found then a kiln only with firebox opening at the front. I put 40 un-fired bricks into the kiln and fired them for 2 hours 30 minutes. All the bricks were fired sufficiently. I then tested an un-fired brick and a fired one by putting them in water. The un-fired brick dissolved quickly while the fired one survived completely intact. The test was a success. My only issue is the bricks are a little weak due to the clay they're made of. I'll look at refining clay or finding a better source somewhere in this area.
    About Primitive Technology:
    Primitive technology is a hobby where you build things in the wild completely from scratch using no modern tools or materials. These are the strict rules: If you want a fire, use a fire stick - An axe, pick up a stone and shape it - A hut, build one from trees, mud, rocks etc. The challenge is seeing how far you can go without utilizing modern technology. I do not live in the wild, but enjoy building shelter, tools, and more, only utilizing natural materials.

      Why don't the bricks come out black from the soot? Is it related to the temp getting so hot?

      You built something to make fire to avoid blisters. Why aren't you using it?

    39. GMMVNET

      No modern technology. But, still uses a camera.

    40. Amanda Kissenhug

      Dont you think you should clear all the leaves and sticks around the area before having a fire that size? There are bushfire happening in qld and nsw atm and this kid is out there playing minecraft...

    48. Rhett Prestwich

      You should figure out a way to make some kind of wheelbarrow (with all that hauling you do).

    49. reinier santos

      Head Cam 03:15

    61. William Noullet

      I like how you showed the whole point of making the kiln, making the bricks water resistant. Nice touch on the POV cam as well

    62. karimbulldogs

      Forgot to turn on captions cuz I was so into the 60fps

    63. hamnose

      Where I used to live people add a little bit straw and cow dung to the clay. They make a similar kiln but don't make as intense a fire and they let the bricks roast all day or more.

    64. Ismail Kassabi

      Same old stuff again. You clearly have no intention to develop your channel beyond building huts and furnaces. What a disappointment

    65. Daryl Powell

      God, his arms really do just keep getting bigger each episode.

    66. 서강민

      Please show the current situation that is what you made, what will you make and where are they arranged.

    67. AgentFire

      I loved both first person view AND how you just walked those 30 meters. I don't think I even saw you walking with a camera just like that. I sincerely hope to see more like it.
