If you have got the space - most of us haven't, but it makes a good BBQ if you can't get it in your garage - extract the inner drum from a washing machine and fill with dry wood - excellent! Will try to dig up a photo or two and post them later.
I'll raise the stakes.. so to speak ..
How about a wood burner from a 13kg gas bottle :thumb:
for the more ambitious
i can make a kettle out of a plastic fork,a razor blade,and 2 lenths of wire:thumb:
and it work's a treat:thumb:
When is it ? I enjoyed last years !!
A chum used to make very good pot-bellied stoves out of car wheels welded together
hi, if you weld another bottle higher up with the chimney running throughit . on jims pice have a hole in the top and a tap at the bottom you have water heater ,radiator as well. just keep topping it up with fresh water.
dont tell calor though thats worse than filling them with an adaptor.hee hee .
they also make good fuel tanks on trikes . ha has .
tsk tsk Alan ... you'll get blackballed by Calor

When we wildcamp where ScotJimland knows we use a 5 gallon drum with the top cut off and hole in the sides down on the beach and burn pine cones from the woods behind the van, with the smell of that and the smell of bacon wofting across the river we get a lot of nice comments from both passerbys and the yatching lot.
