Weld your very own Rocket Stove! Come learn welding techniques from Daniel Schepers of Elite Welding and Design and take home your project!
Weld your own rocket stove and have a mini cook out! The rocket stove design is meant to optimize airflow and get the stove really hot really fast. Due to the high heat, there is typically little to no smoke when burning a fire in a rocket stove. It also uses 18 to 35 percent less fuel compared to traditional stoves.
