Hi guys just wondering how far along the rocket stoves have come since the dvd's came out showing the glass burntube on dvd4?
I want to build one in my backyard and transition to living more in the backyard and having enough light to read from at night.
Would that not be ideal since it would probally burn alot of wood fairly quickly? How much wood would I need to provide 4 hours of light?
I know it will be more than warm enough as the mass will keep the heat in but will I be overheating to product that much light?
Is this form of a stove better than a camp fire to produce light?
What kind of glass do I need? How does the glass hold up after time? Would I simply be better off getting a thicker peice of glass or would replacing them once in a while be the way to go?

Thanks guys!
