I took a look at wood gasifiers, but it seems to me that they all need to use wood chips rather than fine sawdust. The common design I see is a screen at the bottom of the unit through which ash is allowed to pass... I think sawdust would likely just fall right through there. Amazing concept tho, can't believe I've never heard of it before... something to look into for sure.
