    Thanks for the suggestion, begreen. In my opinion, the folks at permies & donkey32 are too set in their ways. They tend to be old fashioned and easily dismiss change. Heck, I'm a less mass & round riser kind of gal and they still focus on square risers with huge benches.

    You are stuck with me. I like you guys! :) Again, this is my opinion.

    I will in the future. Right now I am renting a farmhouse which is limiting. I am also at the beginning stage of studying metalworking.

    Hi folks,
    I like the idea of a spin to the flame in a rocket stove.
    Did a bit of an experiment myself with a rocket stove/Swedish candle, drilled a 2" hole down the length of a softwood round and a hole near the bottom to meet it, made a great tall flame and think it lasted a bit longer than a Swedish candle with the usual chainsaw cuts. What do you think ? -

    I think that after one too many beers, trying to watch that flame would make me tip over.==c

    One neat thing I found with it was I could control the burn by turning the hole into or away from the wind :)

    why has noone invented the Swedish Candle with beer holder attachment? Am I missing something here? We might even call it a Beer Holder with Swedish Candle Attachment...no?

    I have been thinking about it since your post and now I am going to try to build a tiny grover rocket stove pizza oven made out of bricks this summer. The build will be temporary and easy to put together and take apart. I have seen ones like it on youtube. I won't need any mortar and can use steel mesh or cast iron grates to reinforce the top.

    Thanks for the push, man.
