It is a great idea when the wall mounted adaptation is added, much simpler and a lot less effort involved, if only I had the wherewithall to make one. I bought one of those briquette makers in Tesco a few years back for 25, it didn't last long! The sides bulged and the handles distorted.

Know two people who had one of these, You have to wait weeks for it to dry out, Total waste of time and effort.

I think this is probably the best homemade paper briquette maker I have seen

Also the cheapy version made from pallets which I though was also quite good.

But as Greenage says, they takes weeks to dry.....but that is not the bit that put me off....They just don't burn very well for the effort you put in////in my opinion anyway

Lot of effort required alright but it gets rid of all the newspapers and surplus packaging. Don't use glossy paper and add a little vegetable oil.

Binds it together and helps it ignite.
