    Scotty you are a real craftsman, that stonework is beautiful, was wondering what the 3 holes either side are for ?.

    Thanks Billy, I love your hearth too!

    They are stone vents on both sides (and at the very top) of the chase. That just allows room air to circulate in the chase where the fireplace is framed in. Keeps the humidity and temperature balanced out in there.

    Those were a pain in the butt to make. But they turned out to be one of my favorite parts of that fireplace. The two vents on either side of the fireplace are all sloped 'downward', so you cannot see into the chase, while the one at the top of the chase (near the peak of the ceiling) is sloping 'upward'. They were alot of work, but in the end they were worth the extra effort.....

    Thanks for the explanation Scotty, thought they must be some type of vent, or just a handy place to keep your wine ;).

    AHHH, don't be giving me ideas, Billy......:eek:

    Now If I tie me a good piece of cord 'round the neck of the bottle, I'd be able to keep my Captain Morgan in there....hmmmm;)
