Heater from a Candle...Update

Well, I stand corrected.  After burning for several more hours, the heaters really started to put off some good heat.  I'm still waiting to test it out as a camping heater before I give my final stamp of approval but I am satisfied enough to encourage others to make one for themselves.

We were about to build each one for less then $9.  Here is the cut-away view again...

this was helpful for us while we built the first heater.  Again, we used a 6", 4", and 2" flower pot.  We then picked up some 2" jar candles (they seems to last for about 10 hours).  I am going to test some different candle and other heat source to see what works best for us.  I'll be sure to let you know the results after the tests.

Happy building!
