Wood stove – is a compact mini-heater that allows cooking in field conditions. It does not require lot of firewood – several bunches of thinning, small branches or dry bark would be enough. Thanks to that, you can use the heater during trips in places where you can’t find wood and start a fire.
The construction of the mini-stove is created so that the air flow would pass through the holes in containers and make up high pull. Thinning in the heater burn with a strong flame emitting maximum heat, which allows boiling water in a metal cup within a couple of minutes.
To make the wood stove, you will need two metal containers: one container should be smaller than another.
You can use usual cans of appropriate sizes, but it is better to find containers made of stainless metal so that the heater would last longer.
This example shows how to create a wood stove from tin cans.
Take the smaller can, make a few openings for the air in the bottom and on the sides near the rim.
Now take the second can and make openings along the rim. After that, its bottom should be cut so that to insert the first can could be inserted into the second.
Final stage. Make a stand for the container to be heated – it will sustain even flame under a pot.
That’s it. Our mini-heater is ready to use: throw thinning inside and set a fire. You can put a small metal cup with water or a pot on the stand.
