I'm researching the cost of materials for a similar build to Peter van den Berg's 3 barrel stove he made for his shop. I haven't started, so wanted a materials list as well as preferred suppliers for USA (close to Idaho if possbile)  I will make a square 6" riser with fire brick.  This is a link to the build I plan on using.

Thanks for any help!

Careful, square six with firebricks might not leave much space for insulation.

Did the maths. Across, it's 38 cm without insulation .

Plus insulation, you should be around 44 across.

Inside of a barrel is around 59/60cm

That should be all right.

As for material list.  I dont think there is one.

You need about 45 bricks for the riser.  

May be as much for the batch. Half a roll of superwool.  1/2 inch . metal for the door and holding the bricks. The solution is drawing and planning.

This is very helpful!  Thank you!  As for the super wool;  how do I hold it in place around the riser?  I assume metal wire would just get melted quickly.  

I've never ventured into this area, but want to do it right!  I have about 60 brick on hand, three barrels, and cold weather arriving.  The undersized stove is going into our living room, and the shop needs heat.

The superwool sits inside the 5 minute riser and is held by friction.
I've measured the temperature on the outside of a ceramic wool riser and it's about 100 deg C after 30 minutes but it I presume it may go higher, but not enough to damage the metal flue that surrounds it.
