I believe the appropriate metaphor here involves a river of excrement and a Native American water vessel without any means of propulsion.

If I don't find a factory cast door to use then I will fabricate one out of 1/2" plate. So that'll provide lots of material for threading a hole for the pipe cap draft vents (I like these as opposed to the horizontal slide style).

I will also mill out a channel around the perimeter of the door to recess a rope gasket.

This is on a maple syrup boiler so don't necessarily need viewing glass although some fancy scroll work with the plasma cutter sounds intriguing
Try doing a search for wood stove kits or stove kits you can find a factory door plain or fancy and a kit for around 30 to 100 bucks for a whole stove kit....

Maybe by August, we'll be able to take our woodstoves offline ... I'm now down to burning green wood!

MD, no need to get that fancy.
I have made them with 1/4" plate, and welded a piece of 1/8 x 3/4" FB around the perimeter at right angles for a lip. If you want a gasket groove then tack another piece of FB on the inside laying flat with a 1/2" space to the outer lip.

But having never boiled sap, maybe all you need is a door to keep the logs from falling out onto the floor.

The virtue is always a cover for the sin. That's the key to understanding the modern left. Whatever they're accusing you of doing, they are doing themselves but more enthusiastically. And that's definitely the story of Justin Trudeau. Tucker Carlson
