New Beta Tester in Goffstown, NH

Two weeks ago we got Nick, another beta tester, up and running with a beta version of the Ideal Steel Hybrid.

Nick was the first to submit his own artwork of a maple leaf and mountains motif, which Nick generated using AutoDesk. With a little bit of translation on our side we were able to get a file that Nick and his wife were happy with and since we had already designed and cut a maple leaf andiron, we were able to pair an already cut file with Nick's design.

Below are a few pictures of Nick's stove and the design files, along with a short video showing his first night burning his beta model of the Ideal Steel Hybrid.

  1. Nice andirons! :) Maybe you could do a whole series of American hardwood leaves--oak, hickory, maple, etc.

  2. Some additional suggestions: pine cones, or even acorns for andirons or the feet on the stove.
