I want to build a Kuznetsov stove similar to one shown in a YouTube video. I have little masonry experience, and I have questions about several details including how to do the grate and other firebox details. I've found drawings on his site, but any instruction is lost on me since I do not understand Russian. Can anyone who has built such a heater offer any help?
Here is a report from the (US) Masonry Heater Association with process photos: Kuznetsov stove A pretty complex project with not much discussion/direction in the report.
A workshop by Igor Kuznetsov and Alex Chernov with process photos and drawings.
Complete layer-by-layer drawings, but a complex design with lots of precise brick cutting needed. You probably need to be experienced in masonry to follow it without handholding.
Bell with dead-end benches MHA workshop by Peter van den Berg with photos and drawings.
A simple design with the few critical details explained, and firebox design and construction covered thoroughly elsewhere in the same website.
