DIY wood stove 6














Turns out one of those mini propane bottles is the perfect size for 4" flue pipe to fit over.  Notched out a plug for my front vent, welded on the hot plate, and added the chunk I cut out of the front of my stove to the back side for an extra heat shield.  52,67,30,0,C

That's real spiffy John. Way fancier than mine. And I am tickled pink that I might have inspired you just a little bit to give it a try. Can't wait to see it hooked up.

I think that could warm the greenhouse

Because the Terlingua Desert climate demands an efficient & very dependable cooling system - and you long ago mastered that! I had no doubts that you could devise a stove to keep you warm for the required few days of cool weather. That stove looks great!
