    This stove has been in the basement not hooked up and I have never seen another like it before. Not planning on using it but any info would be appreciated. Here are a few pictures. The only place to put wood in is in the top circle plate. It seems to me it would be a pain to clean the ash out among other things.

    Custom/homemade/one-off type?

    I mean, there is no branding or labeling anywhere on the stove.

    Is there a lower air control? I have no idea, but it looks pretty polished for a homemade stove. Is the only wood feed from the top?

    Good call. There is a top side air inlet on the center picture. Wonder if this was an early Tempwood or a prototype?

    No air control besides the ones on the side in the second picture. It does look like the Tempwoods.
