A rocket stove employs simple concepts to create an efficient wood-burning apparatus. Fuel is burned inside a combustion chamber containing an insulated vertical chimney. Rocket stove designs are most often used for portable stoves for cooking but the design is also used to make mass heaters for heating buildings. Using recycled materials to make something useful is resourceful. Learn to make a tin can rocket stove! These lightweight, wood-burning stoves are excellent for camping; not too bulky and no fuel required - they pack fine into a backpack! We'll create a lasting product that competes against and may even out-perform your industrial camp stoves. All tools and materials provided.
