Home made camping stoves

I was looking at Mungo's blog and came upon his "Ikea" wood burning camp stove. I've been looking at the "Bush Buddy" but $100+ seems ridiculous! Does anyone else have any plans for their own designs? I'll post them here if you would like. Maybe make an archive of do-it-yourself camp stoves? Who knows..............

Perhaps this "pocket" cooker may fit the bill? http://www.amazon.com/Innovative-Products-Foldable-Pocket-Cooker/dp/B000HR95NO. Cheers.

I've got one of those folding stoves from Sportsmansguide.com and a couple of homemade hobo stoves made from large coffee cans. They will heat water or soup in about five minutes. The heat lasts longer and is more stable if you use charcoal briquettes. I like these small stoves because they are safer than a campfire when the woods are dry in summer and there is a fire ban.

You can see my hobo stove I mounted to my metal boat at my YouTube website. Snocamo154 at YouTube. Heated approximately two cups of water in about six minutes in the video.
