ok, so I got the other side of the Hofstove made.......but I'm having a dilemma.
My original plan with the ridges out........but, I put it together (tacked, so can be undone) backwards, (inside out) to see how it looks, and I sort of like it.
so, dang, what to do?
any input is welcome.
glass door for fire viewing, only. the wood will load from the side to the left. I'll put a couple of bar in front of the glass, to keep logs from breaking it.
how it is, smooth side out, but not planned direction:
How I had planned it, with ridges out, door would need to be turned around now:
door open. I made this area larger, so, if I want to change glass or shape later, I can take this door off and install something else:
and still, bought nothing but welding supplies, so far at least, all is made from scrap I had, and I got from Looneytune.
