Wow, that's awesome.. Its amazing how much unburned gas comes off a wood fire that would be lost without a secondary air distributer like this. Very good! 8-)

The idea of a secondary air distribution system came to me last year but I didn't know how to approach it. But since I installed a window in my load door, I was inspired to persue it. My first idea was to run piping the full perimeter but decide that wouldn't be so necessary lol. So I simplified it into what it is. I know you posted that a while back, but just watched it today.
