Sorry didn't get the chance to answer you sooner. My experiment is much like ceccil's pic. It does move a lot of air down stairs and greatly helps but it's not enough to keep the area warm. But it's enough to keep the upstairs cooler, so I would say it's working as much as it can be for now. Like in his picture I used a smaller piece in front of the stove in order to not take all the heat away from the room, but a bigger hood for the stove would take a lot more heat from the stove and move it to where I want it.

Is your ceiling in the cellar finished with a drop down ceiling? I know on here people either removed a couple of tiles or replaced them with vents and got more of the heat up in between the tiles and the floor above and where happy with those results. I use a 10 inch in-line duct fan to suck the heat from my stove, the bigger the fan and the duct work is the more amount of air your going to move. If your goal is to move as much as you can the go with the largest you can like this 14" fan http://www.airboosterfans.com/duct-fan.html and build a hood that covers part of the front and top (even sides if need be) and build up from there and bring the heat to where you wish it to be displaced.
