A simple school project has turned into a business venture for 15-year-old Henry Standley.
The year 10 student at Wagga High School made a fire bucket as a school project.
He did work experience at Countrywide Engineering and was encouraged to make more of the burners.
His father was so impressed with the design that he suggested Henry sell his creations at the Wagga Swap Meet.
The smaller burners takes about three-and-a-half hours to make while the larger ones can take up to a day so plenty of man hours went into making the 16 he exhibited at the Swap Meet.
The response was overwhelming with people taking photos of his creations and Henry even made a few sales on the day.
“It’s a bit of extra pocket money and a hobby as well,” he said.
Henry said his family have been very supportive of his venture with his dad even joining him at the Swap Meet and dedicating time to driving him around.
