  • how to information please??

    i currently am looking at how to make a wood burning stove. i want to fabricate it all my self. i like all three of the ones shown here in the projects page on millers website. the problem im having is i want to make a tray for the ashes. and also an air intake and dont really know how to go about doing that part of the build any info will help. is expanded metal a good idea to let the ash and debris fall or will that deteriate too quickly. any help would be appreciated thanks.

      Try Google or Bing Image search for guidance. Best to start the search with "homemade" and then go for the part or complete unit you're looking for. If you see something you like, try look at the original link for the photo.
