Hello all - a few quick questions...

I am planning on making an item for our camp that I wish to burn. I'm not looking for any art grants, and it's not a huge piece.

- How do I coordinate with the Burn team to burn this? Or is it small enough to just throw on the fire when it's low? (It will most likely be a board, max height 6 to 8 feet, with things on it, and some kind of frame to stand it up)

- I have heard that chipboard should not be burned because of the chemicals in the glue. What I need to know is whether pegboard would fall in this category, or if it could be burned. (it would be one sheet of pegboard, if allowed, the rest would be plywood or 2x4s)

Thanks!

Start by contacting the fireteam coordinator, Mungo Jerry.

You will need some kind of burn pad, but it might also be possible to just throw it on another art burn fire after the orginal piece has burned down enough. Fireteam will go over it all with you.

I don't know about pegboard specifically, but it probably is not an issue. We routinely burn plywood which is glued together. Just don't put it in a burn barell and then stand over it inhaling the fumes. Burning things is generally not eco-friendly regardless of the materials, although some are worse than others (like pressure treated wood).

Thanks Bink!

I don't plan on having it be a big burn "event" - after another piece burns is fine with me.

AT LAST--

answers from our fire team coordinator Mungo regarding this:

"yes we can just toss this on the pyre as long as we know it's happening and when."

All you have to do is find Mungo or Booger or Jill and give us a heads up.

Best,

Jill
