Introduction: Soup Can Trail Stove (wood Powered)

Hello Readers,
Welcome to my first instructable, where I will show you how to create a wood burning soup can stove!

Step 1: Supplies

Step 2: Tools

Step 3: Step 1 the First Hole

Step 4: Step 2 Air Intake

Step 5: Step 3 MOAR AIR!

Step 6: Step 4 Soup Can ASSEMBLE

Assemble the stove's feet by putting the bolt in from the inside and the nut on the outside, Screw on tight and your stove has a pair of legs!

Step 7: The Stove in Action

With the stove ready for action, Simply create a small fire using some paper/tinder and small pieces of wood, on the image you can see me boiling some water (in a used Energy drink can) with a teabag, to get me a nice cup 'o' tea.
I hope you liked my first instructable!

Good Instructable, simple with very clear instructions.

I like this idea...
What about one of those restaurant size cans that
veggies come in.... Maybe a cooling "cake rack"
for the grate.... Give you a bit more room w/out
having to tote much along....
Regardless, this is a great idea, thanx... :)

Nice. I'll definitely make one for camping!


Great first instructable, good pictures and instructions. I really like this idea, I will be making one for myself for trying it out on a camping trip. Thanks for this idea.

I made something similar, but to make the holes I just filled the can with water and placed it in the freezer then just made the holes with different size nails!
This is cool to make with grandkids, it's in my list of projects. Thanks for the cool idea!
