A reader describes the inexpensive, easy-to-build woodstove hearth he assembled from scrap lumber, stone, and mortar.
Building this simple woodstove hearth yourself will cost you tens of dollars rather than hundreds.
You can save hundreds of dollars when installing a new woodstove or gas stove by building your own woodstove hearth (the heat-proof area under the stove).
Assemble the wooden form and line it with plastic, place fieldstone as you desire and fill the empty spaces with ready-mix cement. Or simply lay floor tiles or bricks over a sheet of fire-resistant drywall right on the floor, and hold it all in place with a frame of wood strips instead of mortar.
