Looks Like Bender, Must Be Bender..Oh Wait! It's A Woodburning Stove!


Bender Woodstove
UK-based engineer Rob “Halftroll” Hall built a custom wood-burning stove portraying Bender, a fictional robot character from Futurama. You can check out his entire build process online.
A short while ago I moved to a new workshop and the cooler evenings had me thinking about making a decent size woodstove, a few days later while watching Futurama and drunk as a skunk an idea came to me. Three weeks later, 5 gas bottles, 5kg of welding wire, 90 litres of CO2, various bits of steel mostly 1.2mm sheet, plenty of plasters and copious amounts of alcohol this is what I ended up with.
Here is a video by Rob showing his custom Bender stove in action.
