Wood cook stove - best way to sell?
[Return to Topics]

We have a wood cook stove we need to sell. For over 20 years we've admired the wood cook stove my husband's aunt had in her house, and never used, but she didn't want to sell it, so we bought one of our own a couple of years ago and my husband hasn't had time to put it in. Now his aunt is giving us hers, which we like better, so we have this one to sell. I thought about listing it on ebay but I don't want to mess with shipping, crating, etc. Anyone know of someplace to list it for sale? We already know to try the local trading post type flyer.

Also - anyone out there used cultured stone for a wall behind a cook stove? We want to remove a set of double french doors, frame in a wall and either brick it up or use cultured stone, possibly interior and exterior. (Thinking about putting in a gas grill on the outside wall, like an outdoor kitchen.) Is this a DIY job or should we call a contractor?

Thanks for all replies.

Cultured stone should be fine as long as it's not flammable itself & you give it a little room to breathe and expand. We have a zee-brick heater wall and it stood the temperature swings for the 10 years we had a wood heater about a foot in front of it. Kinda hard to visualize but heat radiates like light so any extra distance helps keep things cool. A candle for example gives you 1/4 the light if you're twice as far away. Well you only get 1/4 the heat when you double the distance too. That's why gas burners heat pans so much faster than stovetops - they slap a flame right against the pan. :)

You might list the stove on the Trading Post on this site.

Sorry I have no answers on your other questions.
