      Wow, that is some huge time to put in on a fireplace screen. One question, because it is kind of hard to see in this picture but did you use plain steel mesh? Is that what that dark color is in there?

      http://www.bwire.com/ Something like these guys show on their site? Or did you go with stainless mesh and just paint it to the black color that is shown? Also, what size openings on the wire mesh did you use? Thanks and congratulations, job well done.

        The screen I got from kingmetals.com. Itis already black, they call it there fireplace screen, so I went with it. They also sale the u channel that you use to mount the screen in. I Welded through one side of the channel into the screen and gradually worked to the other side pulling it tight as I went. The opening size I do not remember just made it as big as possable to view the fire. The metal that slides in the back really seals it off.
