    The work bench in flames is quite impressive! ;)

    You've probably already thought about a fire-proof surface.
    Firebricks are very expensive, I had an old wood heater that was lined with
    damaged firebricks so I replaced them but not with firebricks.
    Clay pavers do the trick, they take a lot of heat and may be the ticket as an interim
    fix; easy to replace a few as well.

    great pours once again lucky, looking sweet.
    It'll really start to elevate the pours when you get that custom stamp :) Bring things to a whole new level.
    Congrats :)

    Yeah I have fire bricks but found when ever silver splashed out of the mold it would stick to the brick and contaminate the silver. When any splashed silver lands on the wood it just turns into a clean ball.
    I’m actually going to put a piece of granite on the bench instead and see how that goes :)

    PS
    If you wanted to get more ripples in the silver a cheap electric air pump
    or similar small engine bolted to the timber might provide nice patterns. ???

    Yeah I thought about that but something I haven’t tried yet which I’ve seen work well is to wave the blow torch flame back and forwards over the cooling metal to create some nice ripples and swirls :)
    Hopefully try it tonight
