I saw some plans to make a flat-pack wood burning stove on another site. It looked interesting, but flimsy and complicated. I wanted to make something simple and sturdy, and this is what I came up with...
|Firstly, I ordered a couple of 300mm x 300mm x 2.5mm sheets of aluminium from Chronos Limited.|
|We need to cut the sheets in half (30cm x 15cm) to give us the 4 sides needed for the stove.|
|I recommend you mark out all the sheets before you start cutting. Getting something the wrong way around is a real bear!|
|The base slots into the sides to support the weight of the fire. By using a locking slot, this negates the need for locking pins.|
|Note the base slots are made a few cm's above the bottom, to allow air to easily flow under the fire, and also to minimise ground-burn.|
|The back fits between the two sides and locks out the whole stove.|
