Sorry ! I forgot to mention make sure you have plenty of ventilation and use well seasoned wood. These stoves will suck the air out of a enclsed room. Also make sure the exhaust is vented through a proper chiminey . The creosal and heat from the wood will coat the chiminey and ignite it. Good luck and be careful.
Hi. First advice is not touse a gas or propane bottle, too many ways to end badly. Second there are kit at the Farm Tractor Supply stores to convert a 55 gal steel drum into a wood stove for about $40.00 dollars. And if that is too big cut the drum in two and weld the end back in place. then fill the bottom with sand, fire bricks and a cast iron log holder. It will last for years versus the gas / propane bottles a few months with a good fire going. Third even after flushing the gas / propane bottles tend still be explosive and the walls thin . Lastly dependent on the use and location you may also want to consider using 14" tiire rims cut in half and then reweld the outer sides together. Jst keep in mind that either option you use will peal the skin off of you flesh in seconds. Hope I gave you the help you wanted. I did this for my garage and hunting shack.
