British Man Creates Adorable Hippie Van-Inspired Wood Burner

Published 4 years ago

The Volkswagen Type 2, aka the Hippie Van, is an iconic vehicle that needs no introduction. Its two-tone design is a staple of the hippie culture and you’ve most likely seen it in countless photos from the 1960s. Inspired by this iconic design, British metal fabricator Danny Lyons of Trash Metal Fabrications has put together an adorable little wood burner and you’ll definitely want one in your back yard.

Each one of the handcrafted burners features everything you would find on a real Volkswagen camper van – from the iconic “V” shape in the front and the large VW logo to the split front window and tiny round side-view mirrors.

The wood burner even features a grate on top so you can boil water or cook a meal when you’re out camping.

As cool as it may look, the camper van wood burner does not come cheap

The prices of these wood burners range from  £225 ($282) to £275 ($345) and if you want to order one, you better hurry up – I’m pretty sure they’re selling out fast!

Danny also creates other cool wood burners – like this Minions-inspired one

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
