Here we have cut away version of the humble "Hobo Stove" This can be made out of any can from a soda can, up to a cleaned paint can. You can use a tea candle or votive in the small cans, and almost anything the will burn safely in the large can. They are very quick and easy to make.
The basic proceedure is to take a coffee can poke holes around the base about a 1/2" from the bottom and a 1/2" down from the top about 2" apart. Then drop a hand full of small rocks in the bottom, or anything that won't burn or melt to act as a "grate". Throw in the sticks and fire that puppy up. There are many versions of this you can find if you google "hobo stove" take your choice. Note, this should be used outside and don't use "soft" stones like sandstone for your grate, they could explode. :)
