DIY Mud Wood Stove

Getting some sort of stove or cooking place set up was one of the first things we did when we we starting off. We have since build various cooking stations from the diy propane tank wood stove, to the diy beer keg rocket stove and the diy tandoori oven. Today I wanted to share with you this diy mud wood stove, too.

Besides being inexpensive and easy to build, I love that this one is very fuel efficient too. So you not only save money and time when you are initially building it, but also as you use it. The original design was developed for a small African community near Arusha in Tanzania. It maintains the heat, without the continuous need to feed it firewood.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • mud or clay
  • water
  • aluminum pipes
  • bricks
  • stones or rocks
  • stainless steel plates
  • cement (optional)

Like with any other structure, you have to begin by establishing a very strong foundation using the stones and rocks. Then you can move on to building the actual structure using bricks and wet mud or clay. Also create the two main chambers, leaving room for the chimney.

Next, you want to seal the entire stove and plaster the outside too. Sit the two stainless steel plates in their places as you go about sealing the stove. The chimney goes into place last and then you just go wild and seal the whole stove in order to be able to capture the heat inside.

You can follow step by step instructions on Instructables, here…
