I ran across this picture in an old issue of Fox Fire. I wanted to share it with you because it reminded me of the stove we had at my grandfather’s place. In fact, it looks almost identical. I guess designs don’t change all that much even across continents.
For those who have never seen one of these stoves, the wood goes into one of the small doors on the left. The bottom one is for the ashes to collect. The cooking is done in the two compartments on the right just like in a modern stove. The wood also heats up the top of the stove, and the top “burners” can usually be opened to reveal the flame.
