Fire Set

I make ours to accomodate the user. The 1/2 in square stock tapered to a 3/8 in working end offers good balance and proportion. The tall folks like longer tooling, 32-36 inch overall length. Wood stoves that are deep, 24-36 in, need longer tooling so the user does not get burned on the door frame. Again the 32-36 in variety seems to work well. In the case of the art deco gas fireplace where the tooling is more decorative than functional, think small as in 26-28 in. this size works better next to the smaller hearth openings. I was surprised to see the numbers of mini-sets sold to the condo crowd as an interior deco accessory. Make whatever the market demands and charge whatever that particular market will support .
