How to Create a Rocket Stove

SIMPLE, COMPACT, SCALABLE, THE WOODEN ROCKET STOVE USES ITSELF AS FUEL. NAMED FOR IT’S LIKENESS TO THE BUSINESS END OF A ROCKET, THIS METHOD PRODUCES AN INCREDIBLY EFFICIENT COOK-TOP WHEN A HOT MEAL OR SOME POTABLE WATER ARE A MUST.

Below we will be providing two different “how-to’s” on the wooden rocket stove, one if you have a drill and one with a saw and axe.

STEPS:

1. SOURCE A DRY LOG ROUND

2.DRILL A HOLE IN THE TOP. MEASURE AND MARK DEPTH OF FIRST DRILL

3.DRILL SECOND HOLE INTO SIDE TO MEET THE FIRST HOLE

4. CLEAR DEBRIS

 


5. PREP AND ADD THE TINDER & THE FIRE STARTER INTO THE LOG AND HAVE IT COLLECT AT THE INTERNAL JOINT. NOT TOO MUCH TO BLOCK AIRFLOW.

6. LIGHT AND STOKE. CONTINUE TO STOKE AND TEND TO IT UNTIL THE INSIDE OF THE LOG BEGINS TO CATCH AND BURN ITSELF.
