That looks really nice. The green and the wood tones compliment each other very well.

Gene, how about a piece of sandstone instead of slate for the back piece? With its naturally tan color, I think it'll blend into the wall better.
I got the same Dewalt shop vac for the small ash spills. Its hepa-filter works great on coal ash.

Yes that vac is very cool ! battery or corded. It has sucked much ash...

I think your sandstone idea is great! Having Pocono Lake Supply two miles down the road tho, kinda trumps that idea.

She was lurking thru thier outdoor yard Sunday afternoon and spotted the complementry piece and So....

thank goodness its only 1 1/4" thick! and distressed to boot. :|

Due to the 4 wheel dolly's 3 inch height the back-stop slate slab had to be tilted to clear the doors :roll:

Due to a small crack 1/3 the way across, we used a durarock sheet as a back board during moving and placing.

As a "lean-against" rear standoff/insulator I figure these old glass electrical insulators should do fine. salvaged from an old steel mill abandoned supply room i was poking around in..

and to keep the rock from jumping away from the wall and onto Gretel , these old ladder brackets will "clamp" it up against the wall. some 5" long 3/8" dia steel pipe, slipped into 6" long 3/4" copper pipe will be the bottom support so as to give a air space underneath for convection and thus a heat barrier to the combustible wood wall...

I see you maxed out the thermometer. Gretel is a hot one! The manual says the metal can excedd 932* f when firing intensely.
In another thread I posted that I had bought a red 507 and found that the shaker shaft was frozen. I've spent weeks trying to get it free. I bought some super penetrating oil called Kroil recommended by Smitty. I doused it several times a day for weeks. I beat it with a hammer, heated it with a torch and tried a large pipe wrench on it. it would not budge. Finally on new years eve it gave and is now free. I had to remove the grate holder from the stove to get good access.
