Question: Hi- just had a quick question: I am installing a wood stove in a small shed & am wondering if it's possible to simply make my own insulated double walled pipe to pass through the 4" wall. I'm thinking of using an 8" pipe surrounded by a 10" pipe which is vented on both ends to allow the heat to dissipate out from between the two pipes. Should I use insulation between the pipes or leave it open to allow air to freely circulate? Thanks for any help or suggestions you might have!

This is the most critical part of an installation, and I even burned down one of my own tool sheds in my early days with a makeshift wall patch. There are wall thimbles commercially available, or you can use insulated chimney for this use.
