There are plenty of ways to design this stove. The above cuts just seem to fall into place for me at the time.

Being it was so cheap and easy to make, someone may find it appealing enough to give a go at it. It's likely it can be improved on and/or designed completely different. I didn't put much thought into it - rather just did what readily came to mind.

The way that I built the little fire in it could have adequately heated at least 2 mugs (1200mL) of water without needing any additional wood. It really doesn't take much to get the job done with small woods stoves such as this and others.

By the way, I've posted a thread in the PBF Backcountry Kitchen area about the pros and cons of using woods stoves.
