making your own wood stove

i am thinking about building a wood stove. any tips? what works, what doesnt. what you like about yours, what you would change.

i am thinking:

propane cylinder of sufficent size
flat top for cooking
maybe removalble side racks for drying gloves, socks, ect
removable legs that fit inside

Volume! You wanna get the most volume in the smallest way, try keeping it square, you will fit more fire than using something round

Volume!! You want your woodstove to stay lit for at least 8 hours. It’s a pain in the ass to get up in the middle of the night to stoke it. You will not be happy with the propane tanks volume. also put some reinforcements on the inside walls to help stop the warping. Flat top is really handy for cooking.

On the inside bottom I would put reinforcement ( angle iron) then another plate on that for a barrier to insulate….some say you should add sand to insulate but who carries sand on in da bush.

All you need is the right kind of wood and have it properly seasoned and a big piece will burn for a long period of time just gotta know ur wood

I was thinking of making a very small one to heat my shelter on the deuce.
I was also thinking of running it on BBQ charcoal.
