Interesting Idea: Wood stove made with tire rims

Interesting Idea: Wood stove made with tire rims | sustainablehomes | Scoop.it

While walking around today I came across this interesting stove made of tire rims.

 

Tire rims are plentiful and inexpensive. Welding several together and working them with a metal saw and grinder opens up some new possibilties of heating and cooking.

 

With a little ingenuity, I'm sure a home heating wood stove could be easily made.
