    Default Small wood stove for shed?

    I need a small wood stove for my shed. Its really not big enough for a barrel stove (10'x20'), and I don't want to spend an arm and a leg. Does anyone have a good suggestion? A small pot belly would be great.

    Have you thought about making one? You could come up with your own design (size and whatnot) and weld it together. Doesn't have to be much more than a box with a few holes. Do you need an airtight or just a simple stove?

    They aren't very efficient but for heating a shed or shop mabey search the army surplus places for a Yukon stove. They can burn wood or heating fuel. You can probably find one for less than $100.

    Ive thought about making one. Its be a good way to brush up on my welding anyway. But if I found the right deal I might be persuaded to just buy one.

    Matt.AK, that's a nice looking stove. I might have to make a trip to Anchorage.

    I have a 30 gallon barrel stove in a small shop....about the right size...don't have to run it hard and it doesn't take up much space.

    Did you build it out of a kit? That might be just the ticket. I think I have a drum around here already.

    Yes, the door and pipe fittings fit both the 55 gallon and 30 gallon drums.

    Does anyone know where a guy could find a good 30 gallon barrel to make a small stove?

    I got mine at arctic fire and saftey. I'm sure you could find a used one around cheaper but I didn't feel like looking.

    Wow, that looks nicer than mine! My barrel was an old yellow oil barrel...now an old burned yellow barrel!

    Glad it worked for you. Some bricks or gravel in the bottom will keep it from burning out so fast.

    Sorry to resurrect such and old thread... I really like how that stove turned out. I've been looking for a kit I can order online, and vogelzang seems to be the common one, but I like the way that door and vent setup looks on yours better. byrd_hntr, do you happen to know the make of the kit you got?

    Oh, uh, hi, first post here, cool forum
