Windscreen and ash catcher.
Can be used as a hot pad.
Solves portable stoves sinking in sand or soil.
We weren’t out to make something to withstand high winds since a wood fire in high winds is a bad idea regardless of your windscreen. For the amount of wind, which I feel is still safe (to have a wood fire) the Carbon Felt as a wind block works great. If you add the flame guard (sold separately) on the other side it works even better.
Note: Direct contact with flames or hot coals will degrade this material.
Inserting L-Pins into Carbon Felt:
On the long side of the Carbon Felt pinch the material between your thumb and index finger.
Using the L-Pins twist and gently push the pins into the Carbon Felt slowly so you do not poke it through the side walls.
Slide the pins into the Carbon Felt until L part of pin is completely inserted.
Use the same holes in the Carbon Felt each time you insert the pins until the spot is worn and then create new holes.
