Last week I stopped moping around the house long enough to do something positive and made a modern wood burning stove/oven for the HBS build-along. It's loosley based on one I Googled.
I've always loved the idea of having one of these in Fenton Lodge rather than a seperate cooker and fireplace. I found the dimensions on the manufacturers website and made a cutting plan of the pieces.
I've used acrylic because it takes spray paint much easier than wood and I want it to look like paint enameled metal. The venting pipe is made with a piece of plastic tube that was left over from making paint tins for the shed. To get a 90° in the pipe so that it comes vertically out of the stove and vents out horizontally through the wall, I cut it at 22.5° on four ends (22.5° x 4 = 90°).
I could have cut it once at 45° but I wanted to make the curve more gradual. The 'glass' in the doors is very thin, clear plastic sheet and the handles are brass drawer pulls that I filed to shape.
The 'fire' is a few pieces of cherry tree branch that I glued together. I wired two 3v red led's in between the wood and then dotted clear silicone on top to mimic flames. Once the silicone is dry you can colour it with permanent markers so it looks more fire-like. This isn't my idea and I'm sorry I don't know who to give credit to. I happened upon it many moons ago whilst googling miniature tutorials.
The stove/oven was given a coat of primer and then sprayed with silver paint.
Wishing you a wonderful day
