    I finished my hearth pad today and it fits perfectly. I put a layer of Durock over 1/2" plywood and then used 6x6 slate tiles. Finished the edges with some stained oak trim. All in all just over $100 in materials. Of course I splurged for a new tile saw for use on some other projects I've got planned. All I need now is my stove and pellets and some cold weather.

    Very Very Nice!!
    Is it the 3ft size?
    I am putting the final touches on mine.
    Alot of work but well worth it.
    I like the way you used all of the colors. Makes mine look a bit plain!

    I am also waiting for the stove; pellets and........what was that "C" word again??

    The back and sides are 41 3/4" I think. I followed the dimensions for the 40" Hearth Classics pad from the brochure.

    Thanks for all your kind words.
