Alex Dodson, owner of Burned by Design, isn’t your average garage craftsman.

You see, Alex has a thing for wood stoves and hardcore wood stoves at that! He specializes in the manufacture of Sci-Fi and Fantasy themed wood stoves and log burners!

In my opinion, his best work is Star Wars themed, but the Witch King of Angmar is pretty darn impressive

Alex describes himself pretty simply:

Since the dawn of Lego I’ve been into making stuff… I’m currently a technology teacher at a secondary school tasked with inspiring the next generation of designers.

He starts with old gas bottles

Then creates the pattern that he will follow during manufacturing

Then he goes to work with a grinder and a welder!
