Photo of the Week: Glass-Furnace Builders


This is the gang that just finished building a new furnace for the glass shop. The furnace-building workshop was lead by Mac Metz, Pablo Soto, and Jasen Johnsen.



Here’s what they built. The new furnace incorporates a number of energy-efficiency improvements, allowing it operate with a significantly smaller burner than the furnace it is replacing.
