How To Build a Barrel Stove
Build your own barrel stove for dollars and keep your house warm and food cooked for hardly cost! Obviously this would be great to build for an emergency and keep stored away until you need it.
I am all for DIY projects that will save you a lot of money and keep you on your target to get off the grid. This is no exception, this DIY barrel stove idea is an awesome way to keep you warm and to cook your food on and even boil your water all day long!
In a quick run down, all you need is:
1 55-gallon steel drum
8 L-brackets (3×3-inch)
1 hinge (3-inch)
22 Phillips head bolts (M5x20) with square nuts and washers
10 self-tapping screws (to fit stove pipe onto stove)
6 coach/carriage bolts (for fitting the draft) with nuts and washers (M5x20)
Black wood stove spray paint
