    No sense mentioning safety, it is the last thing on this guy's mind. When he starts giving advice, hit the "Page Down"

    Here's one of his gems.

    Not a good idea for a cutting board or a countertop, but in moisture conditions ( like on cement ) in a wet environment to thwart rot and termites is kinda the whole purpose of treating the wood in the first place.

    Yup, not put the snow blower in there, especially since you have an open flame in there now :cool:

    I agree, I need a shed now to put the snow blower.

    Leave it outside?

    Park it on a floor mat?

    Fix your floor so it's not sloped to the walls?!... I'd imagine the sole plate and walls are getting wet too?

    I would have probably just put the stove on the tiles right on the floor and called it good. If the water is getting more than tile deep there are other issues!

    Hello

    I am displaying a stove and showing what type of hearths that I can build. A water proof raised hearth may be good for a basement.

    Just put the 1st coat of Gull Wing gray on it.

    “Cow Hampshire” was a term coined at the University of New Hampshire, when reportedly there were more cows than people in New Hampshire. That is 2 words but no longer the case and that is what it means Scott.

    "Live Free or Die" is the official motto of the U.S. state of New Hampshire, adopted by the state in 1945.
    It is possibly the best-known of all state mottos, partly because it speaks to an assertive independence historically found in American political philosophy and partly because of its contrast to the milder sentiments found in other state mottos.

    Now that we have those terms cleared up. The hearth is for sale and there is No Sales Tax. We learned something from your "Boston Tea Party" ! ! LOL

    Hello

    Well, the hearth is in the intended spot. Now I have to make the stove worthy of it. LOL

    The top is 1/2" of cement board with porcalin tiles on it. That far exceeds the required K value, but I am not worried about MA inspectors crossing state lines. LOL! ! !

    has anyone of you ever seen a torch used on a vehicle in a garage..? You all panic over a fart in the wind. Vapers will explode yes gas will ignite AFTER the vapers. If you gas tank leaks get it fixed now, its a safety hazard to drive. your gas cans stored in a garage with a furnace is dangerous, and that includes your lp/ng furnaces as they have a flame in a thin metal box, water heater you all get the idea..... now run and panic while I cut some shocks off an old truck in a warm garage.
