this is not a rocket stove. this is a convential wood burner, a miniature version of a convential fireplace. what is missing are 2 tubes, one inside the other which channels the heat of the fire within the 2 pipes causing a vortex of energy movement akin to a tornado which produces much higher heat using far less fuel. this is a rocket stove -

hello instructablers!

i am about to start building a rocket stove. I am loking for information on how long does it take for the wood to get burned, but i cannot find anything. I know that it depends on the kind of wood i will use, on the dimentions of the opening that the air is sucked from,on how big is the stove., etc

I need to know aproximately how often your oven need to be refilled with an average hard wood. I would like to heat a space with that system but i would like to do other things at the same time and not have in mind of the stove to be refilled too often.. Does anyone have an idea aproximately about those times?

Nice project and nice step by step instructable with pictures that tell everything. thanks for sharing.

I see your Shuttle and raise you the Obelisk!!! :-D

I need to insulate the riser tube, it's only been run in the cold, but I have some fiberglass matting that should do the job.

I think you should do its little friend Asterix :))
Nice job extraordinary desing.

Like the J-tube model vs the L-tube. It is self feeding.

What do you use as a fire source?


little piece of wood

Hello, this is a nice looking device. I haven't seen one yet that is square - it looks much easier to make than a round one.
Do you think it matters if you insulate it at all? What if you don't even have the outer steel body, just the smoke tube? How much heat do you think it would lose with no insulation and no outer body?
Those are good looking welds. They must have taken a long time.
Also, what are the little flanges on the sides for? Are they to mount it somewhere?
