What’s Cooking..? Currently SOLD Out .. An ingenious upcycling idea.. created from an awesome team of students & their Teacher from a small Technical Institute in Henderson, Honiara, in the Solomon Islands.. these are For Sale.. (contact details included) (note: change made to email addy) 1

What’s Cookin’?
The senior Machine Fitting and Maintenance class at Don Bosco Technical Institute, Henderson have been hard at work over two months to create eight outside stoves from recycled materials.  

  

Having first salvaged several oil drums and other scrap metal from the tip, they used their cutting and arc welding skills to open and split the drums, creating stoves which are well insulated, with two deep shelves and a chimney. The fuel source is burnt separately from the food and is accessible from the back, guaranteeing the safety of the cook who can access the baked goods from the door at the front. Each stove has been hand-painted with rust-proof paint.

The students tell me that they worked in groups of three, managing to complete a stove within a week. Skills they are proud to have developed during this project include: working off a plan, completing a complex project within a given time-frame, using a variety of individual skills – such as welding, cutting and drilling, while abiding by occupational health and safety standards and maintaining all tools responsibly.
              

The students tell me that they’d recommend any kind of baking in their stoves, including fish, chicken, pudding, bread and even wedding cakes.
  .     
Bon Appetite to the new owners of the ovens. Three were still available at the time of writing and are available for $1,500 SD. If you wish to reserve one, you can do so by telephoning reception on 36 555 and leaving a message for Mr. Thomas Kevaro, the SMFM Head of Department. Alternatively, you can email me on a.k.willems@gmail.com
