    Do you think a smaller fire will work?

    I found the Alaskan stove company. Trapline must be the model. Is it a small stove?

    My brother has one and loves it. Heats his home and shop with it. I wonder if anyone here burns wood in any stove or furnace.

    Scrap wood step stool

    They look pretty strong to me but if you are going to paint the steps anyway you could hide the screws if you feel the need. I hate to tell you its fine without and have your wife get hurt.

    Yes Im burning a pile of wood. The 6 cord I have now doesn't burn well at all because its to wet. Its mostly oak and it goes for 200 a cord cut and split here. I got two more cord of green ash coming for $150 a cord. The ash will burn for me better than the oak even when green. My goal for next year is dry wood and different stove and Id probably burn 4 to 5 max cord. I think a rick of wood is about 1/3 of a cord so 8 or 9 ricks sounds darn good to me. To tell you the truth I don't like my stove. It wont run well with a small fire and I cant get it to burn any less than 25 logs a day while Im working. I think part of the problem is my firebox is to large for my needs unless I load it up to spray finish with the windows open and fan on. My shop is about 1400 SF but with 11ft sealings and drafty windows, poor insulation and large door Im thinking a 2500 sf wood stove with 112.800 btu will do it and use allot less wood. That's my plan.

    I been thinking about the newer EPA stove because I hear they burn less wood. I also can burn greener wood in my stove but according to You Tube EPA stoves don't like green wood. I never seem to have the darn extra cash to buy two years ahead to stack and dry it and that's about 7 to 8 cord a year just in the shop.

    Im not being smart but been wondering it you had just started the darn stove. I cant get smoke like that even with green unless Im not giving it much air and it wont put out no heat for me like that. I happen to think of wood stove smoke today because the wind was blowing just right and I was getting some back draft into the shop today. Got to extend my chimney this weekend.
