Default Burning Allotment Wood to make tea

I wish to boil up water to make cups of tea on my quiet corner of the
Allotment. I want to be using the bits of wood which always seems to be
available around the place.
There seem to be a number of ways to go about it: a fire-pit, home made
rocket stoves (see youtube) but these seem complicated and liable to be
stolen and Chimenea; again the possibility of being stolen since they
are quite expensive.
Grateful for any effective and simple solutions.

Look up Kelly Kettle. They (under the name of Thermette, though avoid
that actual brand, according to reports) are very popular in New
Zealand. I have just bought one, and it works as described. You
may need to cut and split the wood into smallish bits.

Nick Maclaren.
