Innovations done lately

Very happy to report I just got out and did some stuff lately.  Finally made a 'rocket stove' for boiling water quickly with wood fire.  One gallon paint cans cut together to make an L tube, in an old trash can surrounded by old ashes.   Fired up very well on first try.

And, made a outdoor towel rack on a pulley.  I LOVE sun dried towels.  Here it is down:
