About: I love to camp,hunt ,fish,bike,canoe or basically anything to do with the outdoors.

This is a small wood stove that I built. It is made from a single length of exterior stove pipe,it has a collapsible stove pipe(made from duct work rolled), legs that unscrew ,a baffle,a sturdy latch on the door with a spring on the handle, a collapsible handle and is very tough and fairly lightweight. It was made from all hand tools,and was fairly simple to make. The chimney is made from furnace duct work cut and rolled,the legs are made from the handles off some old stove tools( a poker and a shovel) cut in half,every thing else is made from the length of stovepipe. The handle is off an old weed eater and is attached with eyelets.  Everything is riveted with a pop riveter and cut with tin snips.

    Given the potential for leaks, I'd be hesitant to use this in a tent or other enclosed structure, for fear of carbon monoxide poisoning. I like the idea, but be careful!

    I never did end up using it much but it drafted quite well and Im not sure if carbon monoxide would have been a problem or not...Thanks!!

    looks rather leaky, so i'm thinking, toss a coil of tubing in as the grate, connect the ends to hose, run them to a radiator, light it outside, put the radiator inside, use natural convection to circulate water.

    Thats a great idea!! Although I didn't intend it to heat water I think I will try that! Do you think there would be any problem with melting copper?

    a bag made of plastic that can hold boiling water, can be exposed to open flame... IF it's full of water, and it'll be possible to bring it to boil. copper pipe would work since takes a lot of heat to melt, as long as the tube didn't empty it should be fine, even empty it'll be good for months of high heat. mix a bit of motor oil in to encapsulate bits of trash and prevent air bubbles. running the coil through a small tank of water, filled locally, possibly big enough to pack the whole stove in, would give clean, hot, shower water.
    with a coil of water as the grate, it could be a tad hard to get up to temp with the fuel right on it, however, sticking a coil in the chimney pipe would make it compact, and less bothersome.
