    Don't know if anyone else has seen this, but it's on my MUST HAVE list now!!!

    This company makes some crazy wood burners, if you're a classic VW follower, they made their start by doing a VW Bus, which was AWESOME, but this!!!

    Total price shipped and everything for just under a grand, so not cheap, but can you put a price on it? I would certainly wait 6 months to get my hands on one! Wouldn't even use it, I would just paint it up as a display piece.

    Here's the pricing info off of their FB page.

    If anyone on here actually buys one, and wants me to paint it, I'll cut you a good deal, just to see one in person!

    Dang, Dick, with your talents in metalworking, why don't you just make your own MINI stove from the pic? I KNOW you can do it, and then you can market it as an additional "way" to get to that future NC location. :Thumbsup:

    Sure, copy an innovator in a niche market. I think he is above that.

    GEE, Mr. Wunnerful...I'll bet you say that about anyone who has a similar marketable item as being a copycat. Dick is way above that insinuation made by you, but, he has his own ideas.

    No, I don't. That was directed at your suggestion, not at all toward Dick.

    The point, is that someone, what looks like a small shop much like Dicks, came up with a killer idea, and your first suggestion was to copy it. Would be cooler to support -any- small shop of innovations, Dick, them, whoever.

    Pinterest has a neat wood burning stove someone made from the rear end of a Classic. People can do these things, ya know, and unless the stove belongs to a company name, what harm if there in making one with one's own take? I'd never suggest that Dick copy that MINI stove and market it under his name...that's just not right. However, everyone has a right to express himself. Look at his take on the Ratmobile...I don't suppose other rat owners are screaming that he took their ideas. It's all good.

    Ha Ha, yeah I would never copy somebody else's work (outside of a stenciled image in my paint work) I actually shunned away everything M7 for that very reason!

    I might be able to build something similar, but if another small shop is building them, I would rather "add to" than steal their idea. That's just the way I operate!

    Here is one of their VW bus stoves for approximate size reference... They are going to email me MINI pictures when they can!
