to light it, get a tin can and cut off the bottom half. keep it. pour some alcohol in the bottom off it just enough to lightly coat the bottom. take off the penny. pour more alcohol in the stove  to fill it with out it coming out of the middle hole. put the penny back on and light the alcohol in the tin. cut the tin so the stove is a quarter of the way out. wait for the flames to die down then cook some stuff!

Nice project. It would be good to have a picture in the final step showing the stove lit and working. Look at how most other can-stoves here on I'bles demonstrate their operation.
