The Classic has the most soapstone - and therefore the greatest ability to store heat - of any Woodstock woodstove. The double soapstone walls provide great thermal mass for a penetrating, yet pleasant warmth, with little fluctuation in room temperature, over long periods. The Classic will burn for up to 12 hours on one load of wood and provide steady heat long after the fire has died down. It will keep up to 1,600 square feet of living space comfortably warm.
Each Classic is a unique one-of-a-kind stove, hand-built by a craftsman who signs and numbers each finished stove. Soapstone panels are polished to perfection and then hand-rubbed to a smooth, lustrous finish so they have the same subtle beauty as fine wood. Pieces of soapstone are then matched for complementary grain and color and fitted into a cast iron frame. The contrast between the grain and color of the smooth stone and the sculpted iron creates a remarkable aesthetic appeal.
Deatiled iron castings have a delicate sand finish. Each casting has the intricate detail and graceul curves common to fine fireplaces
