Here is a cool idea.

Can anyone explain the dynamics of this, ie, what is it that makes it work?

i get the general idea but could use a clearer description of why it is better then a regular stove.

I think its a pretty cool idea.

ahh, thremodynamics.
see, most of the heat energy in a wood stove is lost through the exhaust stack. so he figures he can use that fan to force air in the fire, and suck it out at the same time, making the fire in effect bigger in btu's, and burn off more fuel. the second chamber is for the expansion of the gasses and by feeding it more air, it heats up more once again. here you see the air to water heater used to heat up his hot tub, it's just a coil like the one some guys toss in a fire to get hot water. it's just like a dual chambered stove, it'll put out a shit load more btu's then a wood stove ever could
