I have been wondering if it would be a good idea to try to make a wood stove in my spare time(I have alot). So if anyone has any tested & proven methods it would be apriciated.

backpacking stove or house stove? imrisk made a sweet reverse downdraft backpacking stove that works great!, the nimblewill stove is pretty cool too. I can post the links tomorrow. I've also have a modified nimblewill pattern that I like.

Lots of testing has been done with wood and wood gasification. Most of it is for cooking in third world countries and in remote areas. They have even built trucks that run off of gasification of wood.

Take a look at http://home.comcast.net/~agmann/stove/Links.htm#Links for a list of wood stoves suitable for backpacking.

Or browse through http://www.aprovecho.net/at/atindex.htm, as well as links on it, for ideas for larger stoves.

A coffee can cut in half with holes in the side seems to work just fine.

This one (http://www.imrisk.com/woodgas/ddstove.htm) works great

Consider Kifaru....

They make backpacking weight shepherd style woodstoves, and tents that let you use the stove for warmth, as well as cooking.

Well Fallingwater had a stove that did wood, alcohol,and solidfuel tabs.Other than that I wouldn't try with gasoline because of safety issues.

:D it's much smaller. you can also make a simple windscreen (though heavier than alu foil, it's not much heavier and nexts really nice, out of a peach can)

btw - for my younger brother's scout patrol he built a "hobo" stove out of a metal paint can, they use it now for general camping. Really flexible (as flexible as any fire) for cooking, though a bit bulky for backpacking (and complicated recipes can be a bit of a pain when backpacking), it's not heavy considering you can cook for 4-8 people with it.

Thats a neat idea. My troop uses the coleman two burner stoves.
