DIY: Emergency Camp Stove



This is my attempt at an emergency camp stove. I believe that in a pinch I can can get this lit quickly and keep it sustained long enough to boil water, cook food, or even warm my hands or feet. I have not tested this yet so everything at this point is based on theory.

Step 1.  My materials: A sharp knife, card board, artificial fire starter, tin box.



Step 2:  I alternated layers of cardboard and sliced sections of fire log until the tin was full




Step 3:  I filled any excess space in the tin with left over cardboard to have a tight fit and then I poured melted unscented candle wav over everything. It loos like a cinnamon roll!



Step 4:  I simply placed the lid back on and stored in my dry bag in my kayak.




     When I am ready to use it, I plan in poking holes in the lid with my pocket knife and using the lid as a stove top. This tin is a Fossil tin that a watch came in. It the perfect size for easy storing but also has a large enough base to sit a can or small pot for boiling or cooking. Again, this is untested at this point but I cant see any reason why it wouldn't work well. Thanks for reading and feel free to send me any DIY survival tip ideas.
