Cooking on a Log; a DIY Stove

Louisa Millar
Tuesday, 10th July 2012

Also known as a Swedish Fire Torch, these resourceful and easy-to-make stoves are a great way to cook in the outdoors.

When caught without a cooking stove or camp-fire facilities this DIY log stove is just the ticket to that end of the day hot meal.

Firstly, cut the log evenly on both sides so it stands up freely. Divide the log up into 8 sections by drawing 3 lines symetrically across the width. Then with your froe, axe or chainsaw cut vertical segments most of the way down the length of the log. Once you have done this take some newspaper and stuff it into the cracks as deep as you can get it, leaving a wick at the bottom.

And as simply as that, its time to light it up and get cooking! 









And for those of you without a chainsaw at hand, here is a video showing how it can be replicated using just an axe or froe:
