Introduction: KP Pyramid Wood Stove
First Prize in the
Great Outdoors Contest
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..
Then I saw a bag and stove is packed and ready to go...
We have a be nice policy.
