A while back, a friend gave me a used camp stove that burns wood. Right away, I saw the possibilities in it. The first thing that I did was to have my son weld a collar on the hole into the firebox. I then took and cleaned the stove and repainted it.
A quick trip to the hardware store got me a couple of sections of 4 inch flue piping. I then measured the interior of the camp stove and cut the flue pipe so that it would fit in the stove lengthwise. I took the top section of pipe and attached a length of plumbers tape around the top. This is held on by some small eyebolts. This allows me to attach cable to the chimney to steady it in a wind.
Considering where I live and the average temperatures I would most like be setting the camp stove up outside with a lean-to. As you can see from the attached pictures the stove pipe and cabling fits inside the stove with room for additional supplies. I also carry a roll of high temperature flue tape in case I end up setting the stove inside of a tent or building. This tape will keep the chimney tight and keep smoke from escaping into the tent or building.
In the picture, I am using wooden stakes instead of the metal ones I will normally keep stored inside of the firebox. The reason is I have a new knife that I wanted to play with so I carved the wooden stakes. My next step will be to pack a few fire starters and some matches in a sealed container and store them in the camp stove. The camp stove should contain everything you need to start a fire. I will probably even put a hatchet and a small pan or two inside it.
When I am finished, there should be everything, I need to use this camp stove for heat or cooking, except the food.
