This is so beautiful I made it full size. I like this kitchen.

DarenN, now you know why I have a disability check: neurological impairments, no simple arithmetic, and assisted technology for reading and writing, and speech is only "okay" for my level of education.

I like this one:

and this one:

I think you can guess, the interior of my retreat house will be "danish modern" and Milan (Italy) minimalism.

No, not that! I do know what you mean.

Actually that kitchen could fit in my house. The walls everywhere else could be slightly off-white and have natural wood finish floors and sandstone slab entry and shower and maximum glass for a mountain retreat.

OT: This is interesting: http://www.kni-co.com/calculator.shtml

This maker of the "hunter's tent" genre wood stove relates stove selection to volume of the tent.

He has bigger and heavier camp stoves. These stoves are 22 gauge cold rolled steel.

Alaskan stove 18 lbs. or 14 lbs.

Packer Junior 6.5 lbs. for summer use? by trappers and archery hunters.

Packer Camp Stove 12.5 lbs for dogsledders and archery hunters in the Alaskan bush.

In addition to the Two Dog stove, shown earlier, and his larger stoves, Four Dog has titanium stoves.

The smallest one in this picture is his titanium "portage" stove: clickable thumbnail

Specifications include titanium damper and double stove bottom.

His Bannerman Ti Stove is the lightest weight stove he makes: 5 lbs. complete, titanium damper, double stove bottom, telescoping stove pipe. He even has a titanium spark arrester available.

Cylinder stove

Image

The smallest size is the Scout Stove, at 23 lbs. with no shelf or side water tank, is for tents up to 10'x12'.

He says, it holds heat for 5-6 hrs. I don't know if that means the fire has not extinguished.

He says, his stoves are airtight and fully loaded, dampered, it will burn all night.

The next size up, the Hunter stove at 42 lbs. has three reviews, one reporting live coals are found in the morning.

He offers four sizes and an optional shelf and side water tank.

Read the construction details here: http://www.cylinderstoves.com/stoves-c- ... vin97po7t2

He says, the top and door are made of 10 gauge steel, the rest is made of 12 gauge steel and 14 gauge steel. The round cylinder is a rolled piece of steel, not a barrel or piece of pipe. It appears to be well made, but quite heavy without a pack horse.

DarenN,

The Kifaru stove is 0.010" thickness?

Decimal point problem? Maybe 12 guage?

Interesting link. "This calculator is intended to give you a suggestion on witch stove will work with your size of tent."
I wonder what kind of fuel is used in a witch stove? Maybe straw and cut up broom sticks! :lol:
