Thought I'd try out a Lixada wood gas stove I got in the gift it on thread.

Nice little stove, fits perfectly in my Zebra 14cm lunch box. Filled it with small twigs and lit it with a piece of birch bark, it caught very quickly and boiled 500ml of water in 8 minutes. Overall useful burn is 20 minutes, (I understand cat litter gives a longer burn time) so enough for a brew and bacon and eggs. Cool enough to empty the ash after about 35 minutes.

I quite enjoyed using the stove and anticipate using it more often, Covid-19 permiting.

Now we are all locked down, maybe we should do some reviews, kit tests, camps in the garden and skillshares, what do you think?

I'll have to watch. We just got an open fire burning ban from now to April 15 and could be extended.

I have an empty garden. What should I plant to have material for making cordage? Flax?

Love a woodgas burn.
In fact any twig stove burning I find fully absorbing.

Being an essential worker though I think my spare time will shrink as we peak through the outbreak:(

There used to be a tutorial on the forum on how to make one of these. It gave you the two perfectly sized tins and instructions. I remember making one when I lived in Plymouth and that’s nearly 12 years ago.
