Same here, saw it on tv this morning...wow I want a used one to try. :D A used one, can't afford the 100.00 bucks :o ;)

But it's design sure got my DIY adrenalin pumping :lol:

Did you look it up on amazon and read the 3 reviews? Not too good. The reviews remind me of the "Beaner" stove. The written instruction for the beaner said to use wood pellets :roll: Evidently the instructions for the Lantern Stove is the same... 1st use pellets, then you can try twigs :o .

I watched a couple of you tube videos on it also... The one individual shows the stove to be smoky.

Fun concept! Do it better, zelph.

The grapevine sticks definitely would be smoky. They are more of a backyard item anyway.

Different wood burns clean: I like fruitwood, like apple or cherry. But ash or birch is more available.

This puts me in mind of my "The Stump" stove I got from this forum. I feed twigs. I get a pleasant light from the little fire.

What if "The Stump" had heat-proof glass higher up, then?

Huh?

That would work. See if you can scrounge a lantern at the thrift store that would fit.

Our thrift stores strictly have only old stinky polyester clothing, not like the great thrift stores someone in the forum has.

Nevertheless, I will be in the lookout for that heat-proof glass from a Coleman lantern, for example.

Zelph, you have managed to stack twigs to burn without much smoke, right? You put the twigs upright with a "tp" size tube hole in the center of that stack for a "smokeless" burn?

Yes, that is correct. Fill your stove with split twigs, vertical stacked and then remove a few from the center. Use telephone book paper and some small "dry" tinder twigs on top and then light. Twist the phone book paper to condense it tight to make it burn slower. Practice...practice...practice :D

I did a quick build of my design on Saturday. My first burn was with a small StarLyte type of burner filled with kerosene to test the drafting of the chimney type structure. It worked well but it burned dirty/sooty as expected. I used 2 quart sized cans and a stainless steel lantern replacement globe for the upper lantern section. Tomorrow I'll use some wood pellets and do a video of it in operation in the evening towards sundown. It's going to be fun! :P
