    I have a question for those who uses or have used a wood cookstove. Is ther a place on the internet that I can see how one is made? Or can someone explain how one is made and why?

    I bought one of these a few years ago- it is excellent to cook on and it is nice to have hot water during power outages!! I used to have an old Amish one, but it was no where near as efficient as this one. The price is not bad either because it includes shipping!!

    I meant how it is made or laid out on the inside. What the passages are and so forth. Something you could look at (interior) and possibly make one.

    Don't even think about making one unless you want to lose your insurance. Insurance companies want certified units on new installations.
