The first thing to remember when installing a flue pipe for your wood stove is that you cannot use the wood pipe material that leads from the stove to the wall. That material is heavy, gets very hot and is not as durable as other flue pipe material options. The best material to use when creating a flue pipe for your wood stove is galvanized steel. Galvanized steel is durable, it will not heat up nearly as much as a stove pipe and it easy to work with. A galvanized flue pipe is also easier to clean, which is something you should have done at least once a year to a wood stove flue pipe.
