Homemade cooking gas for FREE - Bio-gas workshop at Woodridge and Tanah Merah

August 2, 2014 from 10am to 4pm

I have made several of Chris Downes wicking boxes and decided to make a tutorial of the process I used to make my version.

You can see the tutorial and download a PDF on my site.

P.S. Thanks again Chris for the demonstration at Lauren's garden visit which inspired me to make this tutorial. (I hope you don't mind).

sounds like a challenge Mike, am guessing it will depend on how much time you have on your hands. Gardening is neat, even the failures are inspiring and i have plenty of those. Good luck.
