My Stove. =]

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

I decided I should post a picture of my stove now that it's up and running.

So far it's really good and burning hot, and I love it compared to my old Wood Burner.

Looks like the picture got cut in half... Here's the raw link if you want to see the whole thing: http://i41.tinypic.com/kcbdk6.jpg

NIIIICE stove. You did good with the colors. The stove contrasts well with the light-colored stone. Excellent setup.
Is that soapstone?

Thanks. We used to have a woodburning stove in the same spot with the same harth and it looked just as good. =D

It's a 1' Foot Square Tile, and I believe it's marble, although I'd have to double check cause we got it done so long ago. =p

Interesting, it appears to have a beige tint in your pic. I installed marble around our FireplaceXtrordinaire, and it has more of a white/grey tint. See attached pic.
I like yours better.

Angelo, That is a beutiful stove and hearth. I'll bet you are really enjoying it. :)
The only redeeming value of winter is that I can have a fire in my stove.
