You just write him a blank check and tell him to fill it in when he is done. Good luck with the party, take some pics.

Party went great, Popper pizza was a big hit. We made 13 pies all together.

Just checked the oven, and the door works great...the wood has no signs of heat damage and the back isn't warm at all, the ring is ambient temp, and the oven still has a nice ember pile...which will be used later for roasting veg and an eggplant parmigiana.

I like your idea of the standoffs between the insulating panel and the timber outer face. Maybe your door doesn't seal perfectly because in the absence of oxygen the coals should die.

I took that picture after the door was off for about 5 minutes while I ran inside to fetch my camera, so the embers had a chance to start glowing while I was gone...when I first removed the door, I didn't see anything but ash and coals.

That said, I don't think I have a perfect seal either, but it is more than adequate for what I need it to do.

As a point of interest, I have read that Italians used to stuff wet newspaper around their wooden doors to get a tight seal when baking or roasting.

I've heard the same. I have been trying to think of a malleable, fireproof material to act as a permanent gasket that doesn't involve ceramic fiber or mineral wool. I haven't started looking around but as of now I'm stumped...I may have to use temporary 'gaskets' to get a true seal.

I have a door that carved out of aerated cement block. Because its been carved to fit, the seal is great. The first time I fitted it, it expanded in the heat and I had to wait until it cooled to get it out. It allows me to have a wood face that is totally protected from the heat and as the handles are screwed into the wood so no hot handles at all . It has the odd chip and scratch but its cheap and easy to replace the hebel should I do something silly and drop it.
Regards dave

Sounds like a nice door, but I designed mine to avoid what you described...getting jammed because of expansion. So my panel is up against the reveal, and since I don't have a visual other than straight on, scribing a perfect fit isn't going to happen either. That's why I'm looking for something that can conform to the imperfections of the brick.
