In this video I show how to make and use my favorite soup can camp stove.The stove in this video is an excellent little wood stove that burns fuel cleanly, and unlike DIY alcohol stoves can burn for long periods of time without needing to be extinguished to refuel.

I also prefer wood stoves over alcohol because you don’t need to carry fuel with you, sticks are a renewable resource you can find almost anywhere.

My DIY pot stand is composed of three steel wires, each with a 90 degree bend on both sides. There are also three sections of steel tubing (brake line) that are the legs of the stand.

The bend in the wires are inserted into the legs to make a triangle shape between the three. It’s a very stable design. You may notice I crimped the legs around the wires so that they are a tighter fit but this is not necessary.
