We're assembling the first cook stove! It's so difficult to bend sheet metal.
Assembly is very basic and easy. If you're not Jacqueline, you can just bend the metal and rivet the two sides together, then rivet all of the components together. The cook stove is very solid and appears to be durable.
In the back is our cardboard mock-up (below), which we created before we sent out the details to the manufacturer. The resemblance is striking. Not that we doubted that the final stove would look our cardboard mock-up, but that it's astounding to see the stove come to life from flat drawings.
