Hey guys,

I've been thinking we should call the reveal into the oven chamber a door jamb -- which is a more accurate term. Your oven door closes flush against the door jamb and cuts off air, the same way a door and door jamb tightly closes a room.

Does that work?

James

Yes. Door jam describes it exactly.

It is amazing how much technical terms and product descriptions vary from region to region in the English speaking world.

James - I agree that jamb is a better term. Can you change it on the sticky?

The meaning of the term "reveal" eluded me for a long time. I think door jam is a much better term, especially for the novice.

You do know there is a reveal on a door jamb, right? Actually, I think reveal is the proper description for what we are doing here...but it is your website, I'm just sayin' :]

finally agreed to get someone to help me finish the dome as I just did not have any time. The bright side is I am that much closer to pizza!

It goes so much faster with two people. My neighbor isn't around this weekend and it's going to suck. I've been trying to go solo this week to get as much done as possible but it's slow going. The dome looks great, love the vent.
