Here is a photo of a woodstove I made out of a fuel drum. Just by looking at it you can see how it was made. The bottom of the drum was cut 3 inches above the rim, afterward I cut the remaining lower end off on the ridge. As you can see I cut the mid-section into a 3 legged stand, legs were equally spaced. The bottom section was then pushed up and hammered into the upper section. I then cut the opening out, then used the cut sections from the stand to make a door and latches. Lastly I cut the top and bent up the pieces for the 6 inch stove pipes. Found an old woodstove vent and mounted it on the door to let a little air in through some holes I drilled. Overall it works okay, would be a good stove for camping or to install in a small plywood cabin. Lots of people out here in the bush used to make them for their fishcamp cabins, some even had this type installed in their homes here in the village back in the earlier days. Guess the philosophy was why spend all that money on a new fancy woodstove when you could make one out of a old drum. Old timers I guess were pretty frugel with their money back then.
