KP Pyramid Wood Stove

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..

It work!!

Then I saw a bag and stove is packed and ready to go...


Sincerely yours...
Krešimir

    Great DIY project. I'm going to add (with some height experimentation) a charcoal grate. Should be able to bake a whole chicken on a vertical rack and metal grill cover.

    Did you ever make a larger version of this one? I'm curious as to how it performed.

    Thank you for this, I was just about to start a rocket stove but the portability of this really appeals. Sure, I might as well make both!

    Similar idea, yours seems easier to transport though :)
