Starting my new tent
I have laid out the drawings for a new tent. I'm going with a tipi style and using a wood stove. The stove I had built from my drawing about 15 years ago, it is sheet steel with two adjustable vents on the door. You can shut it down quick! Making my own stove jack from aircraft metal instead of the silicone coated fiberglass. If my sewing goes well the tent will be 10' X 10' and have 8 1/2 foot peak. Sewn in bottom, adjustable vent port, #10 zipper on a six foot door. I have always used army duck cotton canvas, but this one is to be made with coated canvas and light weight. Still the military type tent material. Outside poles set-up, I just don't like center pole tents. The material "should" be in this week. About a week to sew a tent working slow and careful, everything double stitched. Needs to withstand winds and snow.
