Cob + Firebrick = Masonry Heater Experiment

I got some clay and sand and firebrick and put together an experimental (for me, anyway) small masonry heater this last winter. I wrote about it for my friend Max Edleson and his website Hand Print Press.

Thanks for this Nate, I'm still trying to decide how to heat our next house and the creative juices are flowing.

Thanks, Ernie. The design was definitely inspired by Max's experiments with the "cabin heater" he posted about on his website, but really I just made it up myself based on previous experience building large contraflow heaters, and trying to fit it into the room.

Nate,

Beautiful and inspiring stove. Any idea how it weathered it's first year as far as cracking?
