There isn't a big danger if it isn't in use. The only danger would be if they fell and hit themselves on it. You'll just have to watch them carefully around the wood stove and teach them not to run around it and to be careful. Kids can learn at a really young age the proper behavior around different things or people.

Secure the door with a plastic wrap and tie it well, to prevent anyone from opening the door.

You can go to most baby stores or a baby store online and buy "bumpers" for the outside of the stove or gates to go around the entire stove. Neither should be very expensive. The gate will fasten to the walls. You shouldn't have to do too much for it to be considered safe.

A stove board is a rectangle or square of sheet steel, usually having sides of about three or four feet, backed with thin insulation, used for the stove to sit on to protect the floor. You can also protect the wall behind a stove by putting a stove board behind it. Very old stove boards might be backed with asbestos, and I would avoid them.

Short answer: probably not. Longer answer: It depends on the size of wire feeding the stove, the stove amperage, and what you intend to connect to the new 15A circuit. If you just want to wire a light for the garage, sure go ahead. If you want to install a receptacle for a microwave oven, no way. Make sure you put a fuse to protect the circuit you are connecting.

Have you ever baked a delicious treat in your stove only to find that it took a little bit longer than expected to cook it completely through? This could be because your stove doesn't give a true reading temperature wise. If you'd like to find out what the true temperature inside of your stove is without investing in a repair for your stove, invest in a stove thermometer that can be attached on the floor or wall of the inside of your stove. This way, when the stove is done preheating, you can check the internal thermometer to do a double-check.

It can also be popped over an open fire.

Some reflexes can be on places such as the mouth, legs, and arms. They are everywhere on your body. For example, when you touch a hot stove with your elbow, it will have the same effect as if you touched the stove with your hand. Reflexes are important body functions because reflexes protect the body from harm.
