KP pyramid wood stove

FeaturedContest Winner
Picture of KP pyramid wood stove
I like to go outdoor ... and i like to camp there. In a wilderness fire is mandatory .. protection.. warm ... light. But safety on the first place. So against open fire, I assemble a small take dawn stove...it concentrate heat on spot

Step 1: KP pyramid wood stove

Ideas on paper and after on metal sheets. Cut it in isosceles triangles. 3+1 pcs an 1 small triangle  and 1 small square. I use a 1 mm  thick material, Simple iron sheet. Then I cut out hinges on 3 sides...and it stay up as predicted.

Step 2: KP pyramid wood stove

On the 4th triangle - bottom part - i cut out connection points, stove door, and make holes for heat exhaust. On small triangle cut out middle opening an bent corners.  Triangle bottom part and small triangle are to make all this secure and firmly together. 

Step 3: KP pyramid wood stove

It is assembled. Now follows the door  and first testings.  At home i start with penny alcohol stove and it works. On a frozen day see picture, I go out and burn  small pc's of wood which is collected arround... little to much moisture was in this wood. Still, water start to boil.. Of course, black bottom on container is to be expected...if the wood is not really dry, as plenty of smoke..

It work!!

Then I saw a bag and stove is packed and ready to go...


Sincerely yours...

Thank you for this, I was just about to start a rocket stove but the portability of this really appeals. Sure, I might as well make both!

Have you seen this: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/baker-stove-an-energy-efficient-cookstove-for-the-developing-world/x/485120 ?
Similar idea, yours seems easier to transport though :)
KresimirPregernik (author)  HeaDCase8 months ago
On the world are enormous types and solutions. Make one for yourselves and enjoy...;)

Great work and instructable, thank you. Do you know how it compares to a small rocket stove? I guess this is much more compact and packable when broken down.
KresimirPregernik (author)  tsmith478 months ago
Please - do not compare. Make one for yourselves and test burning and packing :)

This is neat. Maybe cut some slots in one side and use a sliding cover to regulate airflow.
Have you tried using charcoal?
KresimirPregernik (author)  rkrayer8 months ago
It burn everything what you put inside. Make one for yourselves and test airflow and enjoy :)

soap (well soapy water) on the bottom of the pan before the fire and the soot will wipe right off after the cooking. Awesome instructable, lovely stove.
Lovely tip thanks, I'm still smelling my last campfire on my kitchen pan!

Hallo Kresimir, it is good idea and work. I am only wary if the bottom of the piramid is enaught fixed, Do you bend every time, when you use stove, this litle overhangs?

Thanks, Jan.

Hello! No, they are bent permanently, enough to firmly hold bottom secure and enough space to be easy snap on and out..
Thanks, yes I see now.

How much does this weigh overall?
KresimirPregernik (author)  kingsmanname8 months ago
Depend on the thickness of material. 1 mm my version is about 200 gr,....If you use tin/can, material it shall be ultralight...

Wo... This is like a concentrator to "aim" the heat to the bottom of the pan instead all around it like in an open fire?
Why not. Will defintely raise the efficiency of t he fire. :)

Good idea!
