Hi!
I am planing to build a rocket stove. Is it posible to have the fire chamber with 3 glasses so you can see the fire from different angle?
I was trying to find some info about that but couldnt find anything.
  The Size of the fire chamber i would like plus minus 31,5 inches wide x 13,5 inch. high x 11,8 inch. deep. Being able to open the front door of
31.5 to feed the fire.

  Is this possible???
  Thanks very much in advance for your help! Any lead will help me a lot. The winter gets cold also in Portugal!

Hers a video of such a system:


This was built over 6 years ago by Matt Walker,one of the top rocket stove innovators.
Since then he has created ever more refined stoves.
He has two channels, a web site, sells rocket stove cores, plans and doors and has create many advancements in the field.
He posts quite a bit at https://donkey32.proboards.com/  
along with other innovators and they are all very generous with their time and knowledge.

Hi Oski;
Welcome to Permies!
So it sounds like you want to build a batch box rocket mass heater?
Do you know how to make one?    Have you been to Peter Bergs website ?   https://batchrocket.eu/en/      Very specific sizes that they are built.
As far as putting glass in for viewing.
It has been done.  Finding see thru fire glass is expensive. Finding Large pieces is harder.
Normal glass or even "heat treated" Pyrex style can not take the temperature extremes.
Heat loss is high thru glass so your batch will struggle to reach high temp.
But the view is spectacular!

Jenny, three sided window might be a bit much.

Look at Peter's latest experiments.

 https://www.youtube.com/user/peterberg10/videos  


This thread of mine, if ever it can give you ideas.

https://permies.com/t/44806/Cobbling-workshop-heater-cooktop-oven

There is plenty of other ones too.

Thomas will share his two or three extensive build threads.

But you'll have to dig too.
