    Stove with burn pot surround to keep the pellets from laying along the glass if they miss the burn pot.........Functional but not pretty !

    And the last..........A Fireball design with an open center ...the flames from the burn pot actually come thru the center somewhat during the stove operation...........

    Hope this gives some of you some ideas for your own stoves..........It's neat to see each others ideas & individual installations.

    Pellets........Smokem if ya got'em !!

    Hey, your stove looks just like mine... now I know what to do if I have problems with the log set. Would love to see a picture of the double flame when it's burning.

    As for the original post... since I can't weld anything myself... I'd like to see 3 pine trees in silhouette, of different heights, as one of your designs. Nice woodsy design for a nice "woodsy" stove.

    Nice! Looks 1000% better than just the bricks. Really well done.

    That looks nice, and functional too. Good job. ;-)
    Oxy/Acet a little brass around the edges for some nice sparkly reflections.

    Gipper, yes, I believe in them. The stove in the photo is actually my neighbors, he does also. One reason I have is that my house is tight and I also use the Selkirk tube in a tube exhaust/intake, somehow I believe the incoming air gets heated a little and works better? I could be imaging, I do that sometimes. My neighbor has his horizontally installed, for some reason he like the oak due to that. Not much help GIPPER, sorry! One way is to try burning the stove multple ways, I know with my basement install, tight house, water heater and clothes drier going, I could see a difference flame wise when I opened a window by the stove prior to the oak.

    You guys are killing me! For those that want other images, I need to move some of the Sunbursts first to put some dollars into production, we're a family owned (strapped like alot of people!) start up, so put up with us for now please. Most favorite image ideas thus far are woods, white tail, and camp fire, let me know if you have more. Production runs are 20-40 units, although we can do a single unit run with any jpeg or gif that you provide, please note a single is more than double price as listed in the For Sale forum, this is due to the image design time. That said, the cost for image design for a full production run is vastly cheaper just so you know. Let us know your ideas, we really appreciate the input! Thanks.

    hey, I put something together for some opinions... maybe needs a little tweaking, but what does everyone think? (ignore the fake logs in the background) :)

    Thanks Haub, the pine trees are coming but with a nice white tail deer with a big rack, they are due shortly! Hope it's ok to throw a deer in there all? Seriously, this design is coming shortly, along with the camp fire one, my regular job and slow sales on the sunburst (thanks Joel! Picts?) are stalling production a bit, not the best sales guy here I guess. I'll get there, promise. Keep the ideas coming please, I really do appreciate it, thanks again Haub. Darn fake logs, I hate 'em!
