Wood Stove by Tim Biggins


Thought you might enjoy seeing an example of a hand crafted wood stove – made by Tim Biggins on Hornby Island BC. Several of Tim’s stoves were featured in the Builders of the Pacific Coast book. This body is made of three truck rims, the door is made from the round end of a propane tank and the base is a huge block (pulley) from a spar tree. 30 years old and still keeping us warm.

  1. Great Post! In a gas cooker you will not find a fan to help distribute the heat evenly and therefore you will always find that the top of the cooker is hotter than the bottom!!!

  2. Is a ceramic slow cooker one of the best ways to cook dried lentils, peas or beans?
    have heard that lentils, chick peas, green split peas,, and other peas are very heatlhy and contain a lot of nutritients or vitamins…is this true? is a ceramic slow cooker IDEAL for cooking!!!!!
