Yup, that picture shows how the clothes rods sit when in use. Level, or at a slight outward and down angle. When not in use, they just tip up and drop down into the hole in the stove top until they stop at the handle. And they are always at the firebox end of the stove.

The grate poker rod I made gets stored in the same place, but because of the bend needed to clear the grates, it sits more at an up angle. Dry towels could potentially slide down toward the stove's firebox.

Thanx again for the reassurance everyone. Farmer, that is one gorgeous stove. Many yrs ago, I saw a similar one at a flea market. So I brought the wife over while I beamed with this Cheshire cat grin. She took one look at it, then at me, and stated sharply, "You buy it, you're cooking on it"! :mad:
