1 quart wood burner

Post by zelph » Thu Aug 13, 2009 4:10 pm

While I was over talking to the guys and girls in the United Kingdom about wood stoves I had an idea. I put the idea into a working model of the stove.

1 quart can, 1 piece stainless steel mesh, 1 stainless steel pot support.

The mesh firebox is loaded with wood outside the can. It is started on fire from the bottom and then placed into the can. Air enters the side of the can and rises up and out the top. The air coming in is used as primary and secondary air as it travels upward along the mesh. This prototype needs more holes in the base of the can. Not enough air is causing charcoal to remain.

One load of wood will boil 2 cups of water.

I did a video of the stove on fire but didn't have the time to edit and load :roll: Maybe by Monday

Looks like it will work fine. Is the wire mesh screen one of your replacement lantern globes? :o

No, I wanted something with less thread count, more air for quicker start-ups. Wood fires like air :mrgreen:

Being able to load and light it outside the can works really cool. Move over BushBuddy :DBfire:
