For Those With a Few Extra Bucks

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.

You can own a truly unique stove. The legs look a little awkward to me but with a little imagination you no doubt can come up with something better quickly and cheaply.

My frog would love that thing ... :lol:
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are
neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. ...Such laws make things worse
for the assaulted and better for the assailants, they serve rather to
encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with
greater confidence than an armed man."

I may buy this stove, but will have to knock the critters on the top off with a hammer in order to fit it in the living room. :shock:

I would never have thought of such a simple solution. I guess that's why some people make the big bucks.

Heck, I was thinking of cutting a hole in the floor & putting the wife's favorite chair over it to keep her warm, guess I'm just a hopeless romantic.
