Darth Vader Stove

The force doesn’t officially awaken until December 2015 (when the new movie drops), but in the meantime, Star Wars fans all over the world can geek out with these epic outdoor fireplace designs inspired by Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Terminator and more.

Darth Vader and Boba Fett wood stoves

Alex Dodson, a schoolteacher in England, is the creative force (pun intended) behind these cool fire pits. He handcrafts the creative wood burners from old LP gas cylinders. And voilà, they become fierce and fiery stoves. The magic happens in his spare time, so be patient when you order one from abroad.

“Each of our Star Wars wood burners is handmade to order with great attention to detail. Steel made, any of our designs can be personalized for that special touch. Our themed wood burners and fire pits are sure to bring the wow factor to any garden or outdoor space. No room outside, why not enquire about our indoor bio ethanol range.”

Besides Darth Vader, Dodson has also made Boba Fett, Storm Troopers and R2D2 along with Batman, Ironman and other characters from superhero movies and galaxies far, far away. The artist says custom designs and commissioned work is welcome, so start thinking about the personality you’d like to be spewing fire in your backyard and place an order.

Each stove takes about ten hours to make. According to Dodson, his Boba Fett was “power welded, cleaned and painted in a day.”

“At Burned by Design we create custom themed wood burners based on characters from pop cult classics from the world of entertainment. Each burner is hand built and steel fabricated with great attention to detail. We are more than happy to take on private commissions and help take your design ideas through to completion.
