I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Closet remodel - my latest project.

    It started out with replacing the carpet in the bedroom with hardwood flooring. My wife has allergies to my dog and cat..... We used 3/4 inch prefinished white oak and it turned out great.

    As part of the plan, we were to also remove the carpet in the closet and replace with hardwood. Simple after the bedroom.... Except my wife told me she hated the closet arrangment and the builders skimped on the materials and the paint was peeling from the masonite....

    So, we gutted the closet. everything was caulked to the walls - huge mess - When I took it apart, I think caulk was the major thing holding it together - there were huge gaps spanned with caulk.

    That behind us we patched the walls and tackled the floor. Then the task of what to do with the closet.... That's when I found out my better half has 70 pairs of shoes to design around....

    The pics attached are what we came up with.
    We used prefinished 3/4 maple plywood and prefinished iron on edging - works really well (trimming the edgiing is a really boring task...)

    Just finished up today!

      Very nice! I wish I had one like that.

      ...on the other hand it makes me realise I haven't got nearly enough shoes!

        Re: Closet remodel - my latest project.

        And do you know why women like having so many shoes?

        I recently read this article which pointed out that its worth spending a lot on shoes, because even if you don't wear a particular pair often, you can keep them for years and years, and still fit into them even if you put on or loose weight, change shape, get pregnant, get old, whatever. Same goes for handbags and hats.

        Its completely logical when you think about it...

          Great job Christo - looks more like a small room than a closet.

            Very impressive! I'm closing on a new (to me) home next month and the closets are awful. I'm certainly going to try to copy your work.
