Gizmos to make your woodstove safer, more versatile, more enjoyable

Accessories abound to make using a woodstove more pleasant. We show but a sampling of the products available. Others include child-guard fences to go around a unit, heat-extracting fins for the flue pipe, baking ovens that sit atop a stove, cleaning brushes, wood splitters, even stove deodorants.

Woodstove dealers stock many of these products. They are also popular mail-order items.

1. Thermometers: magnetic stick-on, $12; probe type for chimney, $18. 2. Stack temperature alarm, $50; goes off if temperatures climb too high. 3.
