So, the trivet is made. :)

Here's the two pieces packed away (sorry it's a bit dark)



And here's them put together



And here's them on the stove.



I'm thinking that's gonna make all the difference.

We went down to the beach today to try out the trivet. We have to walk down through a woodland to get to the beach so collected some wood along the way.

All set up and ready to go.



Dropping sparks onto a cramp ball



Using the cramp ball to light the lichen. I couldn't get the lichen to produce a flame, so had to resort to cotton wool :(



The stove appeared to perform much better with the trivet....although we were also using better wood.



Enjoying the fruit of the labour...a Chicken and Vegetable Cup-a-Soup.

A cracking fathers day out for you then mate. Glad you got on well with the trivet,
I keep meaning to make myself a hobo stove out of one of those drainers

Not my idea, a very clever method used by Olav, on an arctic bushcraft course I attended, which enabled him to have a roaring fire sitting on the top of deep snow, and cook burgers over it. And it didnt sink. Very clever it was. Never seen it before anywhere. He said it was his own design. I dotn thtink that windhield is gonna be quite right though.

Kinda thing you dont share, then just wip it out next time your in the arctic, to impress the hell out of your fellow bushcrafters....:)

The cup came out of a billy can nesting set, I'll have a look and see if I can find a make on it... I found I never used the cup with my old kit but have recently changed my setup to the Pathfinder and found the cup to be more useful with the new setup.
