That is awesome and could probably be done one a smaller scale with a knife and a magnesium starter to heat a snow trench

What an awesome idea! I bet you could get a good hour or more cooking time!

This is a niffty idea im going to have to try that but i wonder how hard it is to get it going the wood is going to have to be very dry inside to get a flame going..peace,sugarcookie1

A friend of ours makes one similar to that. He uses a really big drill bit thing, an inch or more wide, and goes down about halfway into the log from the end. And then he goes in from the side, and meets it in the middle, and inside there, he puts a bit of fluff, newspaper, anything dry, and starts it up. It has like, a chimney kind of, and burns great!
I like the one that the OP posted tho, because it would be great for cooking, allow more air flow to go through the log for more even heat maybe?
Either way, its a GREAT idea, and works wonderfully!!

Here are pics of the ones Im talking about.. I hope they work! (these worked GREAT for ice fishing!)

Great idea-Love the way the log holds its shape while burning,giving a good surface to put your pan on.
Is the idea to use an axe to chop the wood?
If so,I would probably tie a rope/belt round the base when chopping it,to prevent the axe from splitting the log too much.

Maybe it would help to have a small regular type fire going as well to feed embers into the log to get it going good.
Great design,as the wind will find a way in from any direction.

I love simple ideas like this,that can be done without buying any fancy cooking stoves/fuel etc.

It shows in the picture on the right that a chainsaw was used to cut the wood....

Chain saw bad idea needs gas and is loud. But it works. find a hollow log about 2 feet in diameter thats hollow and stand it on end with bricks to hold it off the ground and start throwing dry wood in . It burns like a jet engine. Got pictures some where

This is a great idea... I use a technique similar to this to burn dried/ dead stumps in my new pastures... beats trying to pull them up or bull doze them, which I don't have.

Only now the lightbulb goes off... darn, I guess I am not the smartest man in the world after all.

I've seen that before, very nice, something we have to remember when the world goes to sh!t.
From what I know this was first done by the Finnish but what does it matter, great stove

I use a 55 gallon metal drum put it over the stump and start a fire in it of course there is no bottom in the drum but it works good out in my pastures and i don't have to sit and babysit the fire this way it doesn't spread..peace,sugarcookie1

This actually works pretty well, make sure your wood is really dry and ready to burn. Seems like you could make a holder for the pans to sit over the log, log tends to fall. I buried mine a bit to keep it steady, it worked well.
