I didn't find a thread about this anywhere on the Lounge. If there is one already, I apologise. It didn't show up in any searches which I did. So this will be the Lounge's resident discussion-thread about fireplaces and stoves of the wood/coal-burning variety. I'm sure I'm not the only member here who likes a nice, crackling fire. Show off your bits and pieces, your fireplaces, your fireplace kits and accessories, vintage or otherwise. Share tips, tricks and advice Dad and I just finished building this: The reflective fireback behind the grate. Manufactured from stuff that we bought at the local hardware shop, and a couple of old bricks. Protects the rear brickwork, and reflects light and heat back into the living-room, significantly improving a fireplace's heating efficiency. This is what the same fireplace looked like before: It's a simple metallic panel bolted onto a simple steel stand, weighted down with two bricks for stability. Our fireplace setup: Fuel-bin (Back, left), fire-irons, ash-bin, bellows.
