    I'm dying to make a wood burning stove from a propane tank but have absolutely no use for one haha

    I have easy access to anything I would ever need to make this, but I can't think of a single use for it. I don't have a garage or shed to use it in, and I camp without a tent. Still have a strong urge to make it though. I just have to find a propane tank now...

    Anyone make something similar? I saw some cool designs using ammo cans too.

    Send a pm to lugnut on this forum. He just built one and we then got a tent for winter camping. He can maybe show you some step by step pics.

    Hey, I got your PM. I don't think I have any in process pics, but I can take a few and upload them sometime tomorrow. Mine was made from one of those helium balloon kit things, but it's the same principal. The whole thing, flue pipe, legs and all fit inside the stove body.

    Do you have a yard or a patio? Then you have a need for one

    I make a lot of stuff and just give it away if you just make what you can or will use you lose the fun of making stuff.One of the things I do is make trips for motorcycle rides I plot them and even set them up for buddies even when I can`t go .Kind of like being there.

    Thanks! I'm definitely interested in seeing how you went about it.

    I'd be interested in pics. I've got an empty tank that I want to make a stove with.

    Ok, I'm in. My brother just put an empty pink helium tank in the scrap metal pile last weekend. I went and got it and am now following this thread and waiting for lugnut's after pics :-)
