This is my wood stove i built from a 50 cal ammo can. I built it to heat a 6x8 elevated hunting blind/ Bug out shelter.
Parts include

1- 50 cal ammo can $15.00
3- steel door hinges $7.00 (2 for door and 1 for the latch)
1- 4ft piece of 2 inch auto exhaust pipe $6.00
1- female exhaust coupling $3.00
1- Can of high heat engine enamel $6.00
Other ramdom things i had laying around that i could use
I chose the ammo can for a base because it would fit well in my blind and give a flat surface to cook on as well.

Great idea. I just happen to have some 3/16 plate steel laying around.

What did you use for the vent and for the legs?

That's pretty slick, wish I had a good hunting blind I could use one for (they frown on building blinds on state land for some reason). Might have to try building the stove anyway, looks like a fun project.

Awesome! Thanks for the post...any chance you could go into a little more detail as to how you made it?...I'm not clear on a few things.

Found my next project.

How did you attach the vent?

Update.....
After a few test fires I decided to put a 3 inch pipe on the stove. I burns much better now and 3 inch gas furnace pipe is MUCH cheaper than the exhaust pipe. I will do my best to keep every one updated on my progress with this stove.

The vent was taken off a old charcoal grill i had laying around. I used the screw and nut that held it on the grill to put it on the door. I had some ALL thread laying around i bent to make the legs and plan to weld some large fender washers to the bottom for more stability.
