Custom Gas Cylinder Stove

I made the first trial of my gas cylinder stove recently, ideal for heating a wall tent or small yurt. I found the gas cylinder on the farm scrap heap while stalking one morning and in return for some venison a good friend kindly cut up the cylinder and welded on a hinged door, vents at the bottom, a grate inside, a small shelf for cooking on and a chimney. It heats up wonderfully and I look forward to giving it a go in the winter. 
              
This was it not long after lighting, once it was up to temperature the red paint soon burnt off. It stank at the time but having used it a couple of times now all the paint is gone and there's no more chemical smell. 

WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE WHAT WE MADE WITH THE BOTTOM OF THE CYLINDER!!
