Homemade wood stove from a gas cylinder
by Andy Patterson
'Found your site from the forums, very nice it is too!
I made my own woodstove from a gas cylinder and wondered if you'd thought of including a set of self-build instructions as an ebook or something like that?
I decided to do it after I noticed I could buy all the tools and equipment to make a stove a lot cheaper than buying one, now I have two good stoves, a welding set, grinder and various other tools all for the price of 1 small woodstove.
Hi Andy, thanks for the input. I have actually considered doing exactly that, but I wanted to actually go through the process of building one myself first.
I've seen some successful stoves elsewhere online but I have reservations about whether they would achieve a nice clean burn. I think it would be quite easy to make an inefficient smoke dragon if you didn't put some careful thought into it!
As you have done this yourself perhaps you would be interested in doing a content exchange? I'd love a guest article on it and I'm a pretty experienced camper/outdoor type.
Let me know!
