Steps to build a Darth Vader log burner from a gas bottle
Find an empty gas tank in the middle of nowhere. Carefully remove the tap and start filling it up with water. As the water starts to displace the leftover gas, you can start to scribble on your design. Make sure to go big and be creative – this is your chance to make a real statement!
For this project, you’ll need to gather up all your scrap bits and pieces to use for the detailing. Once you have everything you need, it’s time to get creative and start bringing your Darth Vader log burner to life.
This is a fun project that’s sure to impress your friends and family. So get started today and let your inner Sith Lord shine through!
