Making a woodburning stove on 09/03/2009 14:31:36 MDT Print View

I'm looking into making a new stove and from where I usually backpack there is always sticks and twigs around.

So I thought I'd look into a woodburning stove, and was wondering if anyone has any plans/ideas on how to make one out of coffee cans and such.

Hey Warren,
Just do a search in the MYOG'll find plenty. I particularly like the ones made out of paint cans.

If you only want to make a simple stove then its really easy. Just a can with holes in the bottom to hold some wood and cut away enough of the top so it will burn but still support your pot.

If you want a wood gas stove, it take either 2 or 3 cans of some sort, with a variety of holes to get the wood gas combustion going.


This might give you some ideas.
