Would you provide the dimensions of the metal fram that you built? That's exactly what I'm looking for. Looks great.

Hello everyone, no excuses for not replying except busy doing everything but work on my oven.

I did score a dual axle boat trailer with enough extra steel that I will be able to chop it into a small gooseneck unit. All I need now is for ambition guy to camp out in my shed for a while.

ndnman: the steel frame overall dimensions are 56" square by 9" deep. The main rails are 1.5" x 3", and the
'floor" joists are 1.5" x 1.5".

RI.BackyardOven: There is a piece of the puzzle not shown in the photos. The aluminum yardstick is only used to align the side cuts toward the center of the oven. I have a hardboard template that I wedge into the dome curvature centered on the stud. Then I place a brick and angle it to conform as much as possible with the form. From there I measure how much of a wedge to cut off of the lower horizontal surface. From there on it's Murphy and my trusty HF saw.

Progress is slow but I started working on it again last week.

I have some new photos but for some reason I cannot get the 12.8k jpegs to load.
