DIY Build a Portable Woodstove Cheap With No Welding

Learn how to take a steel barrel and turn it into a vertical portable woodstove. This one was built in 2002 for only 30 dollars. It was built by David Scott Matthews and he says “Did I mention that I built it with no welding, using only a jigsaw, power drill, screwdriver, file (although, in many places, a grinder would have made the job faster and easier), ball-peen hammer, and a pair of pliers, for a total cash outlay of only about $30?” That is really impressive and the stove looks fantastic. Check out how he built it on Backwoods Home.
