How to Make an Aluminum Can Stove (Soda Can or Beer Can Cooker)

Would you like to make your own aluminum can stove? They are light weight, simple and practical little stoves fueled by denatured alcohol. I enjoyed making this DIY project and hope you do too.

For this project you will need:
3 Aluminum cans (2 if they are tall)
a marker
a box cutter or scissors (something to pierce the aluminum and cut)
screwdriver
scissors (to go back and cut the lines clean)
ruler
cutting board
pliers
angled pick or awl or push pin

You should be able to find denatured alcohol at your local sporting goods store in the marine department.
