    this afternoon, I decided to redo the hot coals holder in my LR fireplace. always use a wire mesh of some sort. am a 'graduate' of the Majestic Fireplace Co's Fireplaces and How To Make A Good Fire book... they suggested wire screen of some type. made sense to me. this stuff old, scrounged from somewhere years ago has served me well. keeps a hot fire dying down staying hot for heating and starting new firewood added. but decided time for an overhaul. 25 + years is long enough. so I had this bit of HD expanded metal from a bigger piece. thot it mite do well as a replacement... long service life. ez 25+ yrs. right on up to the point that I am replaced! lol ;) you see, seriously doubt I will be around see how its doing then. had to clean out the ash from yesterday. steel bucket required. hot coals still. soon bucket of ash side nicely warm. some pix. I preformed it a bit outside, [stomp...stomp... stomp!] :D fit in pretty good. I like the end results. should perform just fine.

    Good morning my friend :drinkingcoffee::lol:.
    Long day, just winding down now.
    Waiting for the fire to catch good so I can close the damper and head to bed. Seems someone loaded the stove a little tight and didn't have enough airflow so it's taking a long time, not having very many coals isn't helping the cause.

    Have a good night guys :hi:.

    so to test it out, I made a new fire on it. some paper and pine needles. don't usually use the pine needles inside the house. but did today. cedar kindling. pine n oak kindling. then some oak kitchen wood. didn't have to light it with a flame. the hot coals in left over stix got to work on the paper right away. you can see the p
    whisps and plumes of smoke rising. soon had a nice fire for the coolish drizzly afternoon as I thought further about some dinner plans later on.

    when I am done with fires in fireplace at day's end I close the unit's fire screen. and also keep in place the bigger screen, too. it is handmade. I found it semi-abandoned in the warehouse next to my office quite a few years ago and managed to scrounge it. have had it a long time. like it. bit ruff, but I like it a lot... functions well. with both screens I always feel secure with a fire in there ending or hot coals turning my back on it.

    our afternoon's fireplace in action yesterday afternoon. with some of the pecan I want to burn up. and a shot of it all sans the glows and ambiance. an internal looksee. that fireplace is over 40 years old. I designed the brick work, walnut mantle and installed it thru a contractor. one for fireplace, one for brick work. no cracks in brick work all these years. great unit.

    as such, it has the older asbestos based fire brick composition bricks in it. too bad such is not legal any more, etc. they look as good today as the day after the first fire in it. many, many hot fires in it. no deteriation at all! none...

    Good morning all.

    57 and thick fog this morning. It is clear above the fog and the moon is shining. So, there is good light to see the fog and not a whole lot else.
