Stayed warm 12 hours on a small fire. I'm delighted.


I also forged this firewood ring, which I'm proud of.

I wish that stove had been available when I was researching mine. Looks great. And the firewood ring is awesome!

I built a heat shield out of tin ceiling tiles. 6' x 6', and it stands an inch off the wall.
