March 1, 2009 – Old Wood Cookstove

I’ve been looking half-heartedly for a while for an outdoor wood cookstove and finally snagged one off Craigslist.

This picture shows it with the top off  (there are two cookplates) and the four foot chimney I added.  The urgency to get it now revolves around wanting to try to make a small batch of maple syrup from the trees on our farm.  I think it would be fun to go through the process to get some real maple syrup and it’s something all the kids could help with.
