Castle Keep Stove (2012)

This was a very agreeable commission, as far as I was concerned, to make a stove facsimile (dual fuel wood and sawdust) of the keep to the customers fortified chateau in Normandy.  In fact for many years I have entertained the notion of making architecturally derived / inspired stoves, but this has been the first opportunity I have had to do so.  Perhaps this will be the first of many…..

 

 

Here are some details of the door arrangements;

 

 

The main air inlet;
