I have been playing with this idea for at least a week and I can't seem to make anything truly useful with it. The fact of the matter is I think that a natural draft venturi derives it "power" from length, so If I could have a one foot tall stove I'd be in great shape, thats just not very practical. Even this 3-4 inch tall stove it too cumbersome. But ya can't say I haven't had fun

I can tell you really have fun making stoves of all kinds. I love watching all DIY stoves go through their paces. I really like how a venturi speeds up the pace of the flames. I read somewhere that the faster a flame impinges upon a surface the faster a boil will occur. Think acetylene torch under a titanium mug impinging fire to the max
Let me see if I can find a video of a bud bottle putting out some impinging flames
