Default Re: Building Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Here is the timber sitting loosely in place. There was a lot of work with a saw, jigsaw, planer and sander to get it to fit. The recess in front of the oven is to flush mount a piece of stainless steel. The funny, triangular piece of timber is to be mounted to the front right corner of the bench, against the rock to cover the corner of the wood store.




And here is the unbent stainless steel just sitting in its slot. I wanted to ensure the timber would not be damaged by the heat of the oven so I have cooked in the oven several times with it just sitting like this, and there hasnít been an issue.

With the steel folded and the timber partially finished I am very pleased with the look. Again, this is still just sitting loosely in place Ė it is yet to be properly attached. The stainless steel was folded so that the back goes down below the bottom of the timber, into a groove in the concrete. You can also see a pizza peel I made out of a second piece of stainless (I bought 2 in case I mucked one up).

And the right end showing the fit against the uneven rock.

Expect the radiant heat from the oven to make that piece of stainless hot enough to fry an egg on. It will tend to cook your timber underneath, but probably not quite enough for it to be a fire hazard. I have a similar piece of stainless bridging the gap between my trailer side and the ovens decorative arch. It is about 400mm x400mm and has got so hot that it has melted the nylon protecting feet that sit between the stainless sheet and the trailer sides.

Great job scribing into the ledge! Did you prime the cuts or put a capillary break in between?

Time for an update.

The triangular fill-in piece took most of a day to complete. I had to shape it to fit the rock then I attached it using a few dowel joints to the timber at one end and a dyna bolt into the rock at the other. I then shaped a timber plug and covered the bolt head. Then an hour or so of sanding to finish it off.




All the timber was sealed all around before being glued in place. Then the edge gap was filled with silicone and then more sealant applied over that.




Here is a photo of the oven warming up on Saturday night. The benchtop works really well for pizza making and has plenty of depth to store containers of ingredients.




The stainless steel gets warm, but not as hot as I was expecting. The innermost bit is just too hot to touch but you can rest your hand on the outer part no problem.

I have started the prep work for the enclosure. The gutter has been mounted to the rock at the back. The vertical groove cut into the rock is for my enclosure wall to slot into. The enclosure is going to be mini corrugated iron - the same profile as the scrap piece that is resting on the top to catch the water that drips over the rock above, but in plain silver gal.
Bacterium and tibort like this.
