Build A Miniature Stove With Two Mint Tins

Build A Miniature Stove With Two Mint Tins

Camping stoves aren’t outrageously expensive, but if you find yourself in need of one where you can’t buy it, Make shows you how to build your own with a bunch of off the shelf stuff.

The main crux here is a pair of Altoids mint tins, but you’ll also need some JB weld, paint roller mesh, bookbinding screws, some nuts and a soft drink can. Once you have the stove built, you can use a variety of fuels, including alcohol or even just sticks. Obviously you wouldn’t want to bring this along on a real camping trip, but it will certainly work in a pinch.
