New wood stove

It gets a little to cold down in the shop this time of year to do much of anything. So today I decided it was time to make a change and built me a new stove. Tomorrow I will put in service to see how it does. bg

Good job on the welding.  ;D  May want to put a few pieces of 3/8 by whatever long on that door so it don't warp so bad.

I am very impressed and humbled.  I have no knowledge or skill to build that.  Nice job.

You are probably right about adding some metal across the door. I started to but thought I would try it first and if needed I will add some. Thanks for the comments guys. bg

Nice job, It will be nice to get some heat in the workshop.

I hate to break it to ya but that stick is never going to hold up the grate once you start a fire in there! ;D

Nicely done Bill, nothing like some good ole wood heat in a shop for sure,  I have built many wood stoves back in my early days,  they were a popular design, the only real difference was on the door opening, we went a bit shorter top to bottom, this allowed room for a diverter shelf above the door, this helps keep the smoke from flowing out to quick,  hopefully you won't have this problem,   david
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

A piece of metal will fix it up just fine.
Bill I hate to disagree with you,but paint won't make my welding look better.  :D I do Ok.I just never had someone really teach me and seems like I'm always working with metal that is rusted too.

Nice big door but you may want to put a flapper inside over the top .Reason being when you stoke it it will blow a lot of smoke back at you .

I had to do that on a down drafter I built years ago but after the fact it was already in the house .

That thing has enough surface area it should put out the heat .

I was just thinking,one of my friends has an All Nighter with fire bricks along the sides and back. Has a peice of angle iron that the bricks go under. I helped him replace them many years ago.

I have a Lopi glass front that also has bricked sides .

When I built the down drafter I bricked the bottom of the Vee where the fire goes through the coals and the other side was the angled grates the air goes through .The brick side theoretically would have been the hottest .The pot licker still got hot enough to made the sides red if you didn't watch it .I think if I would have stood one layer of brick along the side above the vee that probabley would have worked better .My oh my did that stove put out the heat .

Now on that door being on the draft side away from the flue I'm not so sure it would warp or not .

Looks nice but a couple of things I would do, weld some 1" flat stock around inside the door opening to help keep it straight and then do the same with the door so that it fits inside of the opening.
Then maybe you could use some rope gasket to help seal it off.
Let us know how it works.

Today  Built a fire in it. Sure enough it smokes out the front top. Added 6 1/2" of metal across the top to make the opening smaller. It did help a lot but still have a little. When it gets some ashes to hold some hot coals I believe it will help.The opening is 19" wide x 10" tall now. I don't plan on using any brick in it because it is just for the shop. Brick may help but don't know how much. I am not sure what a smoke deflector would look like. Maybe you could help me out on that. You were right about the wood that I used to hold up the grates didn't last long. Good thing I put some weld on them. I use a Hobart 200amp gas welder. Plan on getting some kind of small fan to put above and behind the stove to push some of that heat around. The door did warp a little but the latch pulls it shut just fine. Thanks for your input, it always helps for the experienced to share there wealth of knowledge. bg
