So I Started My Hearth Area Demo

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.

Ok fixed the un level problem. I took 1" thick blocks of steel and forged them down to 3/4" and made them look like pieces of natural bluestone . What do y'all think?

After 12 hours in muriatic acid and I also impregnated the steel with a bit of brass to give it a little shimmer like real stone .

Looks great, Smokeyja :D

Other than the brass, did you seal them with something to block moisture making it to the iron core? If it rusts, it might stain your bluestone. It's probably not a big concern and not likely to happen, just a little detail.

Haha Fred for being a "youngster" I don't feel so young ;) . I picked up some work a week ago that made realize I haven't been in my 20's for a little while now lol . That 1" block didn't treat my right arm too well either lol. I need a power hammer!

I sealed the steel with the same sealer I used on the stone . It's a sealer enhancer for stone but I don't see why it wouldn't work on the steel. It has dried and seems to be working as it should .

You can probably tell the Change in color the last two photos .

And thank all of you for the kind words!

I've been rather interested in making metal look like other thing lately.

just curious, I thought the stove has to be at least 18 inches from any type of combustibles? stove looks like it is very close to that wood floor in the front.

Yea that's what code states but this will be more than fine. I ran a WM for almost 2 years less than an inch from my wood floor. Considering I own my house and don't require an inspection it's fine.

It would be pretty rediculous to push the stove out any farther into the middle of the room . I am going to try to push the stove back as far as I can but I don't think I have muh room with having to pipe it .

Well Josh, comparing where you are now, from less than a year ago, (by your 1st post in this thread), I'll bet you're a little eager to see how your Glenwood performs. Have you completed the installation to your satisfaction? :roll: (I know...are we ever satisfied?)

Not completely yet! I think I can go back a little farther with the stove which would ease my mind a good deal ! The problem I am having is the two elbows I have to put in the pipe to get it out the chimney . I really wish I had made my chimney for the stove when I had it lined... I am broke this winter and can't even buy my load of coal so I'll be burning wood until I pick back up in income . Starting my own business was a little premature I think and a lot has gone on. Basically I really want to just put a flue in line with the glenwoods exit pipe and then that would be it and I could have it go out the chimney while being pretty darn close to the chimney on the back side ... But how much would that cost me to extend the liner down and re brick everything back up ... Oh well. Maybe I will see how this set up works this winter and try my other plan next off season.

I did fix up the cast elbow I bought and am ready to install that.
Thanks for asking by the way! I seem to be a bit frustrated at the moment .

Thank you! And I am now satisfied ...

More photos to come! I did it all properly this time with stove cement (the good stuff from Otey) and stainless self tapping screws in each joint. Bolted the elbow on . Man I am damn happy right now. Even clicked it into base burner mode for a few and I was so surprised at the draft it pulled still! Wow !
