I hope you like it, reviews are appreciated.
Welcome to permies, guys.
Your stove do work, yes, but there are some niggles in it.
You should use insulation material around the combustion chamber and the riser. Earth isn't good enough, better to source some vermiculite or better still, perlite. A building materials outlet probably will sell that stuff. The mild steel stove pipe inside the riser won't last long when the stove is running properly, a stainless steel duct will function longer. The same cross section area throughout the stove is another important point.
Still a very nice job, cleaver arrangement of fire bricks and sidewalk pavers.
By any chance, are you located in the Netherlands?

Yeah that's right, I think we are going to isolate it more.
