The stove is easy to make but you need to be a die-hard hobbyist. There will be sawing, sanding, painting, pasting and cutting involved!

The inside of the stove.

1. Cover the inside of the box with black cardboard.

2. Create a raised bottom by cutting off a 23x37cm piece of cardboard.

3. Rill and fold the two sides (width) on both end 7 cm down.
