    Excellent use of one of those things. Well, they do also work quite well in a large army tent.

    My parents have a stove that looks JUST LIKE THAT in their yard as a planter. It used to heat my dad's garage. Cool looking stoves, but, you know...

    All of the Boy Scout Cabins at Camp Manatoc have those Boxwood stoves (Volz).

    All overfired and white.... With wet wood burned all year.

    Thank Goodness at least one is out of commission :)

    "Honey, would you please move the lamp over to the other corner of the room?"

    Nice end table. Lined it with foam and with a small TEG cooler in it, that would make a nifty little couch side beer fridge.

    Lots of cast iron for a lamp... They are just an enclosed firepit for a shop...work alright for that but sure wouldnt want one in a house.

    About as ugly as those lamps that folks make out of old brass soda acid extinguishers.
