I have built this woodstove for my tiny house. I had tight space limitations.
I chose a used 20 gal+/- propane tank. I cut out a door and exhaust opening with a disc on my angle grinder.
Helpful hint. I attached hinges befor making the last cut on the door. It lines up perfectly.
I found a piece of 6" well casing for my stack. An old piece of sheet steel for the top, in which I cut a 4" hole for my flue.
I am using the tank upsied down as I am using the original valve opening, which is 3/4" pipe thread for outside combustion air.
I welded the tank onto a 15" used steel car wheel for a sturdy stand.
I will not be burning wood only manufactured logs like from Tractor Supply and will be making used paper for making presed pulp logs.
I am letting the High Heat paint fumes air off before I fire it up. I also have a CO and Smoke Detector plus a Fire Extinguisher.
There is a dampner in the flue and a thru wall fixture. It is mostly airtight. I installed 1/8" flanges on in and outside of the door.
Used a black wrought iron gate latch for a closer and some brass machine screws for bling. lol
If anyone does this make sure you know what the hell you are doing, if not don't try this at home.
