I picked up a 4" x 4" square of aluminum step flashing at Lowes' back a year or more ago to use as a stove base. It cost .42 cents! weighs like a feather, and the edges can be easily rolled to reduce sharp edges. It has seen quite a bit of use with alky stoves and keeps the stoves from burning picnic tables, ground spots, etc. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" />
