I am calling this the "Ned Kelly" wood stove. It reminds me a bit of the armour helmet worn by the famous bushranger.
FB_IMG_1659340887143.jpg The stove is improved from a old charcoal BBQ chimney starter. I found in a chimney and the old wire rack on the roadside clean up.
FB_IMG_1659340900024.jpgFairly easy to make just cut out the door of the firewood and remove the handle. Is similar to the classic hobbo stove but bigger and more robust.

Very effective. I have a similar sort of stove made out of gas cylinders. Keeps the fire contained minimising the chance of accidental fire. Particulry when wind is blowing can place a sheet of metal over the top closing the fire in.

I do love playing around with this kind of stuff. Certainly it a bit of a mind set to make usefull things out of "trash".
