    Great photos! Some of the best I've seen of the stove. Especially the new firebox pics. Thanks.

    Gee Todd 2, thank you for those wonderful pictures. I think Woodstock should put some of those pictures on their website as they show the details of the stove very nicely...something that I had to just guess at when I was looking at the PH. I just bought one on Monday and will be "patiently" waiting to receive it toward the end of the year. I especially like the side-door pictures and looking in from that angle, because that's where I will be doing most of the work with the stove...loading it up that way! The only difference is I bought the black one with an ash tray, and yours looks like a really beautiful blue color. Thanks for the picture of the grate inside too. It does look much prettier in your pictures!

    Was it hard to install?

    Thanks again!

    ¡Congrats!

    +1 ;lol

    I think that color is "charcoal." It does look blueish in certain types of lighting, like the fluorescent bulbs that we have or with Todd's blue walls, but when the sun hits it in the morning, it looks more greenish-grey. IMO, this color goes very nicely with the blue-green hue of the stone that Woodstock uses. If you *really* like the color, they can probably change your order. . .I changed mine, and it was "no problem."

    So much for my "charcoal" guess. Doh! It's hard to get a handle on these metallic paint colors. . .so dependent on lighting. (Something like "metallic graphite" might be a better name than "charcoal.") At one time, Woodstock had a few pics on Flickr with stove inventory in all 5 standard colors shown side-by-side. Those pics probably give the best idea of what the different colors are like, in case anyone is still wondering.

    Beautiful looking stove. If I ever spend more than $500 on a wood stove - this one really catches my eye.
    Question - is the soapstone that faces the inside of the combustion chamber the same piece that you see on the outside of the stove ?
    Not sure if my question makes sense - I'm just curious if the soapstone on the exterior of the stove is actually the same piece that you see on the inside - or do they use seperate slabs for outer & inner components.
    I suppose sealing the stove would be challenging if it was a single piece rather than two.
    Is this a dumb question ?
    I'm trying to figure out where all the weight comes as well as how the heat is conducted through the soapstone.

    The Progress is a steel box with stone attached outside/inside.
    Woodstock's other designs are double-slab (1.0" + 0.75" IIRC.)
    Hearthstone uses thick single slabs (1.5" IIRC.)

    There are two layers of soapstone. And between those 2 layers is a steel layer. So, from the firebox out, it is soapstone, steel, soapstone. Not a dumb question as it can be either way. Hearthstone is one layer of soapstone, whereas Woodstock is 2 layers.

    Nice stove, Todd2. They still take my breath away when I see one. Enjoy!

    art that works really really well!! no kidding. Looks like they put a metal lip on the back side of that iconel screen that is installed. i just got my new screen like yours the other day, but mine doesnt have the metal lip, which would be nice. ive noticed the screen is kind of loosing shape and there is a gap there, although, i dont think it is very critical at this point.

    Congratulations Todd 2. A beautiful stove that will serve you well. I also see you got the no ash pan and that is how we ordered our stove too. I also think the stove looks better without the ash pan.
