Has anyone ever tried to convert an old gas cookstove into a wood burning stove? We were given two old gas stoves from the 1920's or 30's. They are made out of cast iron. Both have 4 burners on the left side with two drawers under them and an oven to the right with a broiler under that.

We were thinking of converting one of the drawers to a wood burner, using the other drawer to catch ashes.

We couldn't use them as gas stoves without converting to propane and then we have no way of knowing whether or not any of the controls work.
And then we all jump out and yell "surprise! we got you this tiny ad!"
