Here is a simple project that you can build out of easily available parts. Take two drums and paint them black. Build a wooden box and insulate it with sheet styrofoam about one inch thick. You can get this foam at most large “Home Do-It Centers” in 4ft. x 8ft. sheets. Paint the inside of the box black. Make a lid by building a wooden frame and insert a sheet of glass, double pane would be even better. Place the heater at an elevated site or on tower (for water pressure) and orient the glass towards the south.

Making charcoal is surprisingly easy. But it is not something you want to do in your backyard except in small quantities. The method I describe here is what is known as the retort or indirect method. Basically, wood is placed in a container and cooked. All the volatile gases are driven off and charcoal remains. This is exactly the method used be the wood chemical industry before petrochemicals superceded it. We, however are going to use these volatile gases as fuel for the charcoal making fire.
