Making a tuna can stove

This is a very practical project; a tuna can stove. It’s very simple to make and use and you can carry it with you wherever you trek. Since the stove is small, you won’t have to use┬ámuch fuel. And, it burns hot the way this one is designed.

You don’t have to use a tuna can; any small tin will work well. There are several methods to make a tin can stove and the one I like best is to use cardboard a wax.

    I have several alcohol stoves made from cat food tins. I keep one in each camping bag. Of all the stoves I’ve tried over the years, these simple stoves are the best!

    Stuff we learned in Girl Scouts waaaaay back in the day… Good old Buddy burners *the tuna can* with melted wax/crayons. We could turn a *#10 can into a Vagabond stove. We also learned to turn a cardboard box into a reflective oven to bake biscuits and cakes and cornbread. Never go hungry with a resourceful GS in your midst!
