I guess we are not sposta give product links (?!?) but it sounds like "Dome Hepot"!

Its Carnuba + Beeswax. Food safe.

Now, can you tell me where you got that ash hook on the left in the first picture? Love that!

I quit using the broom once I got the hoe tweaked right. I also have a blow tube I use to clean the floor for cooking.

Ya i saw that blow tube floating around the board. Thats a neat idea, how does the hoe substitute the broom? the hoe wont clean up the ash, right?. On another note how long should these handles be for a 40-42" oven?

I've tried brooms they just seemed to get charred and the bristle disappear at a fast rate. The flat hoe I have is used for moving coals and ash around in the oven and bringing the excess to the front were a natural bristle brush and steel pan transfer it to a tin bucket. The hoe is made of 3 mm aluminum so it doesn't damage the hearth brick.
My preference for cleaning the last of the ash from the hearth is a simple mop made of a stick with strips of cloth wired to the end. Many so that it drops the temp of the hearth . I suppose a full size mop soaking wet might. But a small mop wrung out is nothing the steam produced when it hits the hearth and the fine ash floats off on a raft of steam ... Cool to watch and satisfies the child bride that the hearth is washed and clean.
On handle length ... Just start too long and shorten till that particular tool feels right. You end up with differing lengths but what the heck. The metal peels just new so it's to long now it's to get 4 ins off it and we'll see how it goes

Got it thanks Dave. So the copper or brass bristles burn off? or where you talking about natural bristles?
