    This is my stove, freshly cleaned today after its mid-season inspection. I made the hearth out of native stone. It is 5 inches thick and faced with bronze. The bronze looks bad now because it turns green after a while. When it is freshly polished it gleams. The hearth is way over-sized, which was intentional. The stove is in a room that is 45 by 25, with 9 foot ceilings. I plan on eventually doing something to the walls behind the hearth.

    Looks very sharp!

    I almost like the bronze oxidized as much as I"m sure I would like it clean :)

    Thank you! I don't mind the bronze this way, but when my wife signed off on it, it was shiny. So, I'm technically in violation with her.
