Lorin and Ken at Woodstock were kind enough to whip me up a CAD drawing of the Ideal steel in plain black. The soapstone is exposed on the side, but it could be solid metal there if desired. It's still an industrial design, but I like it better in black. It reminds me of some older coal stoves, purpose built and serious about heat. The andirons are fleur de lis in this drawing, but they could be plain if desired. My wife doesn't approve of the look, but I hope this firebox soon migrates into more classic designs based on the same firebox. The tech behind this stove is fantastic. It's a trend setter for sure.
