Watch: Paint Can Stove Tent Heater for Less Than $10
Russ Chastain 12.31.19
Things can get pretty chilly this time of year, and if you decide to go camping you might want to heat your tent up. If DIY is what you like, you can build yourself a handy-dandy little stove using a paint can and a few other hardware items.
This guy bought a paint can, cut a rectangular door hole in the lid and riveted on a hinged door, built some legs and feet using bolts and steel straps, and added a chimney hole up top.
The cost? Less than $10.
Omitted from his instructions is that he put some folded-up hardware cloth (steel wire mesh sheeting) inside the stove to support the burning material.
Once he stokes it up, it burns like a champ — as long as the door is not closed all the way.
