Red Clay: What kind of saw was that? That was a clever idea how it was made! Great job!
TheEmeraldfox: Yea he'll win the Darwin award for using the wrong size barrel! That kit cost 59.99 at tractor supply another 15 or 20 dollars for a 50 gal metal barrel..i jus built one of these for my hunting cabin yesterday it came out beautiful and works really well due to the right size barrel!!
Christopher Eckbold: i mean for the flange you could have just put it on the back
peggyt1243: Can't believe you put a wood stove in a small space make out of wood. Stoves need clearance and non-combustible materials.
Veronica Myers: LOVE this !
just showed it to my son :)
John King: Had he cut the barrel on the other side he would not have had to cut around those holes and he would have had a nice clean cut.
Daniel Wilson: Love it! Good video
Grayson Goss: what size plenums and fan do you use?
: We have a 30 gallon barrel slid inside of a 55 gallon barrel with 4 bags of mason sand stuffed between the 2 barrels, we optioned for 2 burner tops for the stove on our kit. The barrel in barrel design with the sand is a fantastic thermal mass system (I have pics of the build) . We found an article with no picture on building a better barrel stove and decided to build it and document the steps. We use far less wood than we ever did with a store bought stove. We used to burn 10-13 ranks of wood a year for our home, now we use 7-9 rank and keeps the place around 80 degrees (24x44) in Missouri.
Thomas Lalor: Should have rotated the door assembly until the holes n the drum were uncovered entirely when marking the cut line for the face of the drum.
Slicks Place: Good job, took my damper out and installed one about 2 feet up on the flue pipe.
Android Orangutan: i love it when u macgyvers get together an get things done..great work everyone! instead of hands on this is (eyes on ) do it urself! great work fellas
Rick A: Troy, if you find that he barrel stove gets too hot, it may be better to put this barrel inside a larger one and fill the gap with sand. The sand would act as a heat mass and help to moderate how fast things heat up.
Link Knight: best thing with all this is that if the drum DOES die, you can use the bits again on another drum. that's REALLY beneficial.
The Do It Yourself World: :)
The Do It Yourself World: Thanks yes I need more wood but I will have the stove running efficiently I think.
The Do It Yourself World: I know, used it in my little pot belly stove. Thanks.
The Do It Yourself World: No live streaming. I use my cell phone for internet. Would be flat dead in an hour of streaming.
