    I just use a brass coal hod both for decoration and pratical purposes. My stack of bags is out in my porch. The hod takes 1/3 of the bag. I fill the stove before I leave for work and leave a full hod for the wife to pour in if needed before she goes to work around 2:00.

    I just pour straight from the bag. Less work that way.

    I wanted something that would at least 1 bag of pellets or more, but also have somewhat of a decorative quality too. Since i live in a log home, I thought an old copper boiler might be appropriate.....I bought one like this, and it holds about 1 1/2 bags of pellets. I also got a plastic grain scoop at the local feed store.

    I bought an unfinished bench like the one in the link at Mill Stores in Nashua, NH for about $30. It holds two bags of pellets.

    Gotta love Maxwell House for those convenient scoops. I use a similar system with the same scoop.

    Has anyone built an 'extended' hopper? I keep thinking about this. I have an advance and would like to see something where you could remove the hopper glass and set another 40lb hopper on top of that giving a 100lb hopper total. This would be extremely helpful when going away for a weekend. I think it would be fairly simple for the right person to build and a couple clamps could hold it sealed and firmly in place.

    I'm real close to getting this pellet dispenser ready to ship in kit form. Easy to put together [only 21 pieces] or can ship pre-built.
    Wife knows how to post pictures so will soon have it here.
