    Hey John, question about your fires and your control of them. Do you have a contingency plan eg. Fire extinguisher ect to put it out, just given the terrible bush fires ravaging Aussie right now? Keep up the great videos really enjoy all of them. Cheers from a Kiwi neighbour

    I'm confused... it says Pot has set due to the lime in the wood ash... but... I didn't see him add lime to wood ash. Am I meant to understood that tree has lime in their wood?

    So many questions... If you make the pot with sand added does it dry and settle faster, does it leak water in 24 hours, can you cook in it, how strong are both types, what happens if you put them in the klin (burn, crack or get stronger)?

    Might be useful for filtering dirty water? If you can increase the rate of leaking.

    So the dried ash mixture doesn't dissolve in water, but is permeable to it, whereas fired clay doesn't dissolve or allow water to seep through? Are there any advantages to making objects out of the ash mixture rather than clay aside from not needing to be fired?

    I really hope this gets seen.... You're an inspiration man... If you can, I would love to see a small clay bricked house with the tile roof ... IF you can... Combining all the best techniques you've learned. Ooooooo and also... Make a little hut deal with your tools that's attached to the side of the house... And then making shelves and such to put your pots and houseware materials... And a sweet looking bed too.. With a fireplace of course... And then whatever creativity that comes to mind.... I could only dream of how utilitarian as you are.

    It still amaze me how people don`t know the existense of ash blocks/bricks, which you can buy from stores as building blocks for houses, etc..... google it. Usually really light and soft and keeps warm (porous usually), but fast to build shelters, etc.... so... already really old technology.

    Why doesn't it need to be heated in a furnace/kiln to cure it like he has to do with dirt/soil/clay/whatever bricks? Is it because it's already burnt or something? Why doesn't it just dissolve back into powder when he puts it in the water?

    Hey man (John?) I enjoy your videos for some years now, mostly cause you do the stuff with notes clarifying what and why are you doing the stuff... Anyway I wanted to ask you if you will try the mortar (clay + wood ash) while building something with the bricks? I saw it on another video that poped up from another "prehistoric technology" but they didn't explained a thing... Thanks in advance and hope it all goes well this 2020!

    So, i've watched all the videos on this channel at least once. Been following for quite a while. I'm still totally fascinated by how certain aspects have changed over time. And how apparent their change is. Muscle tone, he started with a little belly, his ability to use his feet as hands, how quickly he can start a fire, camera angles and editing, fine finger controls, and the incredible ingenuity that seems to get more deviated as time goes on, almost as if he is bored so thinks up new ideas. Excellent channel, for any of you who are new here, I highly recommend you check out more of his videos, they are just brilliant.

      I want to know as well. So far we know that the pottery and bricks made out of dirt sets after being heated at very high temperature. But it looks like the ones made out of wood ashes can sets after drying at "room temperature". Maybe heating them at high temperature would make them waterproof ? (Or it could also reduce them to ashes once more (: )

    If I recall correctly, you can pour water through wood ash to extract lye for making soap. More primitive tech. No one does this anymore. They just purchase the lye.

    • Léo El Amri
      Léo El Amri 3 hours ago

      You're right: You get the potassium hydroxide kind of lye when filtered through wood ashes. It doesn't allows you to make solid soap, though, only liquid jelly-ish ones.
