I absolutely love a good recycle project and today I have one that will blow your socks off.  My friend Ben created a DIY Wood Stove made from Tire Rims!  Yes, tire rims!  Sounds crazy doesn’t it?  Who would have thought you could take an old set of rims and turn it into something you can cook with?  Gives a whole new meaning to meals on wheels lol!  Way to go Ben!  You did an awesome job on this project.

Instructions to make your own DIY Wood Stove made from Tire Rims:

Many were asking how to make this awesome stove so Ben gave us a few tips.  He went to an auto salvage yard and picked up two old 17 inch GM tire rims for cheap.   He them brought them to a welder and had the welder cut out the hole and weld them together.  The welder charged him about $40.  After it was welded, he sanded it completely with steel wool and put about 6 coats of high heat resistant Rustoleum black paint on it.  It’s important to use the high heat paint so it won’t peel off when you use your stove.  There are holes at the bottom of this stove.  It allows air to flow through for the fire.  Finally, he leveled it off one two bricks to complete his stove! 

This project just makes me want to grab my Lodge cast iron pan and do some cast iron cooking!
Look at this photo below.  Notice how he used a cinder block to hold the iron rods for cooking.  So clever!  Love that!
