DIY ‘Soapstone’ Stove

Get all the benefits of a soapstone stove with only a portion of the cost.

| December 2013/January 2014

During the coldest winter months, I like to place slabs of granite on and beside my cast-iron woodstove.

The granite holds the heat long after the fire has gone out and keeps the room warm until morning. It’s a great way to get the advantage of a soapstone stove without the price tag.
