    You talking about your logs or your stove lasting 8 to 10 hours?

    Air control... The more air, the faster it burns. I am actually designing one that I can fold down one side and load logs inside of and have a thermostat control the air. This plus a pipe welded inside the stove that will go to the duct work will give cheap heat to the entire shop.

    Country metals pretty well nailed it. Tight draft control will extend your burn time. Just remember to maintain sufficient minimum draft to keep your flue temperature high enough to preclude creosote formation or you will end up with a spectacular chimney fire or worse. Burn time is also somewhat dependent on what you are burning.
