    I have that exact same ring, you sure a local guy did it? I think I bough mine at Lowes or somewhere like that.

    We use one just like that. My mother bought it somewhere and gave it to us a few years ago. It is nice hold about two stove loads in it and holds the mess. It just made it into the picture below.

    Embers would be the only thing to be concerned about. Speaking for myself, I make quite a mess on a daily basis.
    Pine is another. Warm it up, and it'll ooze pitch on the nice tile.

    Right now I'm just using a black plastic tub but I keep going to the local auction waiting for a nice interesting box. They always have steamer chests but we want something a little more contemporary.

    Not to high jack a post, but Duck, those are some big splits in that 27. I have a T5 and burn quite a bit smaller wood, does it handle that size just fine?

    Not fancy, this is a scrounged box I was going to take apart for the plywood, but thanks to this thread I had the idea to make a wood box out of it. After the burning season I think I'll stain it to mach the trim of the room and save the JD emblem in the process.

    Here is my setup: 45 pounds of mig-welded 3/4" steel bar. Should outlast my grandchildren's grandchildren!

    Bought this a few years ago. Doesn't hold a huge volume of wood, but I love the sturdiness!

    And here it is with the hearth included in the shot:

    My wood holder looks a lot like Duckdogs' ring. I got mine at a yard sale. It is slightly broken but with wood in it it is stable. It allows good airflow so that the wood dries, but it doesn't hold any of the dirt or bits of bark that fall off. This would be a mess on a carpet, but on the tile floor it isn't a big deal to vacuum up the mess.
