Winter is approaching and Barbie cold, I propose the creation of a wood stove!
In modern appearance, it is made from a PVC tube drainage.
The fire is imitated with a RGB LED (3 colors) controlled by a ATtiny 85 (8-pin microcontroller programmed with Arduino Uno).
(the subtitles are available in the video with translation)
- Miter saw
- Glue gun
- Soldering iron
- Hand tools (files, saw, screwdriver, cutter, pliers...)
Step 1: The Main Materials
I used a 50 mm PVC tube of water for the body, a bottle of Orangina for glass and PVC falls cut with hole saw, for the other parts.
Step 2: Electronics
Inspired by this article, I used an ATtiny85 and 8mm RGB LEDs to simulate a fire.
You can download the Arduino code and electronic scheme.
Step 3: Mounting
The stove is painted black with spray paint, the door is maintained with small hinges and I added a photo of fire in background.
Step 4: Finishes
The circuit is cut shorter and it is stuck with a the glue gun.
I added wood logs below.
I used an aluminum tube to the chimney.
Step 5: Done !
Once in place, Ken and Barbie can enjoy the fireplace comfort!
