A sawdust stove is fairly simple to make and has an abundant fuel source that is generally discarded as useless. If you chop your own wood, have a little wood work shop that makes a bit of saw dust, this handy little stove can make use of all that extra saw dust that you were probably going to throw away. Remember that the sawdust needs to be compacted tight. Some people try to ‘go the extra mile’ by adding some type of fuel to the dust thinking it will make it burn better. Thats not a good idea unless you really want a visit from your local fire department or enjoy a smoky bbq smell from the smoldering pile of rubble that once was your home.
