A little progress on the shop woodstove

Posted By on December 12, 2015

As mentioned previously, the floor leveling was the biggest pain in order to level the top of the “walls.” I used an aluminum angle to hold a sand base before placing and cutting the bricks that line the floor. The 3 rear walls are tied to the wall with anchors and eventually the mantle/top will get wrapped with some extra airplane 6061 aluminum — kind of a waste?

With the warm weather we’ve been having I’m not overly excited about  finishing up just yet … but at least the insulated chimney is in and I’m almost ready to place the woodstove on the bricks.
