Hemp Cement CookStove

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am in the process of designing a new woodburning cook stove. My old Master Climax is dying, so I am stripping the parts off and refinishing the chrome parts and building the stove out of hemp cement. I plan to start construction in May to allow the summer for the cement to set. I have used Hemp Cement for chinking my cabin with excellent results. I am confident that by adding high silica sand to the mix I will have a stove that will last a very long time. I have friend who built one from brick. He could put one fire on in the morning and still bake bread at eight o'clock at night.

I will keep you posted.

That sounds really cool, John Paul!  Might I suggest writing a wiki of your construction process when you start?

are you refinishing the chrome parts with chrome? i thought chrome plating was bad for the environment. am i wrong?

i wish hemp would finally get the credit it deserved. about 5 yrs ago i got an email about hemp "plastic" cd jewel cases. what happened to those?

 

maybe now is the time more people will take hemp seriously.

 

great idea for your stove, can't wait to learn how you did it. will you supply photos?
