    I have a solid piece of 1 1/4 inch granite left over from my kitchen and i would like to know if i can use it in front of the oven opening. It would actually be in front of the ash drop. How hot does that area get?

    Not too hot

    The front landing does not get too hot, and you can definitely use granite there. I have granite in front of one oven and I like it. It's easy to clean and nice and smooth. No seams to worry about.

      Not granite, precisely...
      Not problems with temperature or at all.

        Nice work Luis

        Luis, what is the material? By the way, I love the look of your oven. I like the stacked brick thing. Very cool! I really like the statuary as well, it is very chic.

          The shell is sorta' reptilian, perhaps an armadillo. Very cool! Is the statuary from the islands? Really reminds me of my childhood in Brasil.

            Marble and such

            In front of the ash drop I used an inch and half thick piece of square cut sedimentary limestone, called Owen Sound Ledgerock here. It's the kind of stuff used for patios, and I've laid a lot them. This was a leftover from a large job. Works great, doesn't get that hot, more like warm. Even so, I stuck it down with refractory mortar.
