I'm assuming if you're planning this you're already well familiar with the Bushbuddy?  Your plans look sweet, and looks like it would make both a great stove and portable fire :)  Looking forward to seeing the finished item!

Hobo in a half shell! Never realised a wood-gas burner could be so simple.... there's another summer project, after the micro tarp and the Lynx can meths stove.

Or alternatively a coke can.

Nah - the Lynx can is better.... it's a side-burner and strong enough to support the pot set on top  ;)

poked holes in a big bean can and it worked about the same! Prob about the same price too although you do get the delicious beany insides to work your way through.. all kilogram of it lol. Read somewhere that the ikea one has too many holes to be properly efficient but thats just nitpicking, the thing does work! ive got a mini version of this in the house somewhere so will do a boil time comparison at some point!
