I believe your floor insulation is fine. You might be under-insulated on your dome. If it cools too quickly, it sucks heat from your floor in an effort to equalize. Adding an addtional blanket to your dome may solve your problem completely. Sounds like black magic. Physics rules.

Re-read the insulation section of the plans for building the oven. I think you're under-insulated. (I've only been wrong once...no wait,,,,,, twice.......Hmmmmmm)

Thanks for your thoughts on this I am planning to fill my enclosure with loose vermiculite hope that helps, too late to place another blanket on dome enclosure already built, I plan to just cut a hole in cement board and blow in the vermiculite

Your oven finish color is fantastic! Good for you for going bold, that "Georgia Clay" (or Italian Hillside) color is just perfect for an oven. The door you made is really cool too. I like the wood handles. Keep up the good work, Dino

Hey Phil, what are you using to hold your tools on the side of the oven? I have to get something like that.

I bought them from G.I.Inc metals a company in Italy ,fortunately they have a warehouse at 203 commercial Dr.Yorkville ,Il. #630-553-9134, 1/2 hour away from my home, I e-mailed them in Italy to ask if they have any shows in Chicago and they informed me that no they do not, but I can pick up what I need in Yorkville Il. which is 20 miles from home,boy how lucky can you get, they also ship from there to any U.S. location, I think forno bravo carry them also,they G.I. have a show in Las Vegas once a year ,go on line to G.I. metals Inc. in Italy for on line full catalog,
