    I just thought I would post up a pic of the hearth pad I made for my stove. If your wondering why I have a notch cut out in it is because I have a central air vent near the corner where the stove is going. I figure once I drop the pad in place all I need to do is replace the wall vent over top. I will post some pics after I install everything. I made the hearth out of 2 layers of 3/4" plywood, 1 layer of 3/8" cement board, and finally the slate tile. hearth height is 2 3/8". Total cost 85 bucks and yes its heavy! Let me know what you think.

    Thanks for the complement I do custom cabinetry for a living so I've had to spend quite a bit of money on machinery

    It looks like you've done a great job! Just imagine what that would have cost you otherwise...

    Hope you realize that it might get dirty if you light the stove and put pellets in it
