"Wonderful workshop.  Learned exactly what I needed to know to feel confident in building my own.
 - Sherrie K. (Toledo, OH)

"I was having a hard time understanding how to build the transition from the barrel to the exhaust system.  This nailed it for me.  Thanks!  Great people too!"   -David  M. (Rockford, IL)

We will examine this stove thoroughly and fire it up to get a good feel of how it looks, sounds and feels.

Then instructors and students will build a similar version of this model and fire it up as well. 

See it!   Touch it!   Build it!   Fire it!
