    I received my new Compact Wood Stove today. I immediately assembled the stove and took it out back to cook a lunch of Ramen noodles. The stove fired up right away using eucalyptus twigs from the many trees on our property and a tiny bit of newspaper for tinder. I used my old and trusted MSR Titanium Kettle. Within no time (perhaps 5 minutes) the water in the kettle began to bubble and I added the noodles. By the time my handful of twigs was exhausted, lunch was ready. I really like this stove and I'm looking forward to using it on many a backpacking trip.

    Just received your compact wood-stove and it works brilliantly! I've been messing around with other wood-burning stove designs and was always disappointed with the results. Thanks for designing a great stove.

    First of all, thanks for the quick shipping, the stove arrived yesterday afternoon. I fired it up and it works great!

    Just received my wood burning stove yesterday and played with it last night and this morning. Quick starting and very easy to add fuel through the "V" hole, boiled 2 cups of water quickly. Very well designed and I am very happy with the flexibility. I'm an engineer, so I really appreciated the thought that went into all of the components. The creativity on the pot stand extenders was GREAT!!! and the addition of the 4 cup mug that the stove nests into for storage, completes the package.
