DIY lightweight camping stove
These photos document my project to build a lighter weight alternative to the standard Trangia alcohol stove.

The original idea (and first version) was inspired by Bill Waite's version of the classic 'penny stove' alcohol burner:

I then discovered a template for a DIY version of the Caldera Cone, by Captain Paranoia on Outdoors Magic:

The Caldera Cone is widely regarded as one of the best alcohol stove designs, combining windshield and pot stand in one piece, and reportedly being very efficient.

I also switched to a Captain Paranoia design for the burner for all the good reasons listed here:
