Gas bottle Wood Burner

Recommended Posts

Ok, I may be cheating a little bit here as I bought the gas bottle wood burner already made..

But when I arrived we had to do a lot of work on it to make it usable..

 

As it arrived..

New stronger legs were made from "hidden toilet cistern" legs.

A new chimney was made from part of a metal lamp shade..

Weld all those bits together and you end up with something looking like this.

The badly fitting door was replaced with an "Uncle Bens" wok which came free with a packet of rice :D
