Fire and Woodstoves / How To Build A Portable Wood Stove
« on: May 04, 2018, 03:43:44 pm »
Hi All,

I upgraded my website, using a wordpress template and bringing it up to date. Bigger job than I thought!

Anyway, I decided to build a new wood stove to document the process and write a better article. Would you mind having a look and telling me what pictures don't load, or what you find confusing?



Fire and Woodstoves / Stove-Build, Pictures and Video

I was embarrassed a little while ago when someone referred to the article on my website about building a stove, and copied those ancient, 10kb pictures. So I've built a new one over the last couple of days, and documented it -- here in the digital age!

I'll update my website (once I figure out how to do something -- anything! -- in WordPress), and post the videos on YouTube (again, once I figure out how to use MovieMaker, and editing.)

Also, I have a book nearly written about bush gear, and stories/adventures, and this will be one of the chapters.

Screen-shot -- hence the stunned expression.

There are many construction photos.

Tomorrow I'll go fire it up and melt the zinc off.

And brew a cup of tea!

I saw this the other day. I guess it's supposed to be for burning some newspaper in your fireplace to get the draft flowing the right way -- up the chimney, not down. But it occurred to me that it could be easily modified to burn some wood and heat up a pot or pan.

And if the material is a bit flimsy, it could also be made from scratch with slightly thicker stuff.

I would modify it to be shorter, and the grate perhaps a bit tighter-weave, and some castellations in the top rim to let the smoke out.

Cheap, interesting experiment.

I've posted photos of a trip we did this season over on the myccr forum -- because that's where I've always done so in the past.


Other Homemade Gear / Babiche (snowshoe webbing)

Has anybody got a source? I'd like to make a set of snowshoes, and I'd rather use the traditional stuff. (I'm in southern Ontario.)
