Happy New Year Everyone :drunk:

She looks really good fired up. What better way to start out the new year with a Glenwood stove. Keep us posted on how she performs.

Minus 3 degF here in the U.P. of Michigan! Coal fire has just been shaken down, re-fired, and is happily purring away!

The wife and I were finally able to close the house up after having 3 doors open to air out the smoke and smell, not surprisingly though on how many tubes of Williams Stove Polish I used on it. Starting the fire after 12 Midnight may not have been the brightest idea I've had but it was fun for a little while toothy . I may start the stove again later today to see if it will burn more polish off.

I can sure tell a difference in the way the heat comes off the stove without having the nickel trim rings on it. The nickel should be showing up towards the end of this month.

Nice Keith! Time is irrelevant ;) it's just a away for us humans to explain the world because we don't understand it.
I'll bet fire that 6 up was very rewarding! After building something yourself and especially because you did your own hearth you can sit back and be proud and appreciate that stove so much more now! May it bring you many nights of heat!
