DIY galvanized ductwork wood stove.
« on: January 22, 2019, 02:37:35 PM »
Greetings

Lonnie from Far North Bushcraft and Survival has just released a great video on how he made a 11x11x22" galvanized ductwork wood stove for use in a hot tent.  The only specialized tools one needs for this build are a set of good tin snips and a pop rivet tool.

Go grab your favourite beverage, a snack and watch.

Just watched that before I came here. Pretty clever. And he did a great job presenting it.

"Clever" is an apt descriptor for Lonnie, I think.

You'll see regular examples of cleverness and effectiveness throughout his videos - the result of an intelligent and creative mind. In his videos he certainly takes advantage of the fact that most viewers learn more by seeing than by hearing.

His approach compliments Dave Hatfield's DIY stove building techniques.

It would be neat, if you had the disposable cash, to attempt to follow these building methods using Ti pipe and sheet to build a small box stove for a very small but comfortable solo hot tent. Maybe a goal could be a home-built solo tent, stove, pipe, and ground cover at under 8 lbs!

The reality is, a workable, small Ti stove and pipe is going to come in at about 3-4 lbs. You can also get a shelter in at about 3 lbs, which puts you at about 6-7 for the stove and shelter. 8 lbs. is a laudable goal, but you are definitely getting close to the lower limit of what can be done with existing materials.

Great video! Thanks for sharing. I was surprised that he was able to bend the whole flange for the stovepipe down without snipping tabs into it - the galvanized metal stretches more than I thought it would. The result looks great. If I didn't already have a steel stove (built with a friend in his metalworking industrial shop with a cnc plasma cutter, hydraulic brake, etc.), I'd be considering some of his methods for sure.
