homemade woodstove

I know a few people had expressed interest in the small woodstove I had mentioned on another thread. So we had a wee bit of sun today so I rummaged through the shed and dug out my ole faithful heat source.
I've been trying to find any of my pics of it setup but I'm struggling.
So here is some pics she measures roughly 18" x 12" it's a pretty basic stove, but it's effective

That looks really great. Thanks for sharing the pictures. That would fit in the 4 window I am supposed to be getting, and it will take wood longer than the 6.5 inches the Mini Grizzly takes.

What's the door made out of? Did you have to use 2 tanks for that?

Ya it's 2 tanks, the door is the top off of one of the tanks, I can't recall where the stove ring came from but it's for a 4" pipe. Everything else was laying around

Thanks for the additional info, that's what it looked like to me. And how's that door for airtightness? It looks to me like it should be pretty good. I assume the domed shape helps keep if from warping when it gets hot.

I have not welded since high school, but I have a friend who I can convince to make one of those for me if I come up with most of the materials.

Now I just need to get past my reluctance to either cut a hole in the roof or run a flue out the window. I know I have to do one of those things if I want a wood stove.
