Oil Drum Gallery

Worker warming himself at a fire in an oildrum reconditioning and manufacturing plant in Memphis TN.


All across the globe, discarded 55 gal. oildrums are used in creative ways to solve problems. Often they are the material of choice, because they are available as a throwaway byproduct of industrialization. This gallery wants to celebrate the global community of creative oildrum recyclers.

Contributions welcome.
