Looks nice. You need to post a photo with a nice coal fire going in it
Good to see ole firebrick reused. There's a stack of old DFC HiFire firebricks (made by Denver Fire Clay) at my moms that came outta the boilers at the powerplant my dad worked at.
Don't have a photo of them but this is exactly what they look like... http://www.jewbacca.com/photos/Portland ... /3114.html
...the ones we have are in much better shape.
I would love to build a masonry heater with them someday.
