That's the best you can do at this point and I'd guess it would be nearly as effective as any other door arrangement. Those two bottom bricks are keeping you from making a reveal. You're almost there except for those.

Cheers,
I am going to put on a chimney. I decided today to notch around those brick for the reveal. I had noway to cut the brick so it, will look a little funny. oh well.

HummerGB,

OK, the basic door design will be the same and you're good to go. I thought possibly you were going to put in a chimney but didn't know for sure. After giving it some thought I figured the door design would suit both situations.

Best wishes,

So Bob Iam thinking to use the 2" drop to my advantage. The neat glass door I have seen on here I would put the sliding vent down there. Now I just have to build the arch. I started today and had some problems. We'll see how tomorrow goes. Wed. I am gone for a week I Reeeally want it done ane let it sit for a week.

I do not think this is a big deal. Make lemon-aid out of lemons.

You could quite easily cut back the two lowest arch bricks with an angle grinder and make a nice door seal at the outside of your current arch.

A simple notch about 3/4 inch deep would allow for a nice seal and then you could start your tunnel at that point. This has the added benefit of being able to provide a small thermal break at this point also. You could make a very small gap that could be filled with Vermecrete and veneered with fire brick as a thermal break.

I got it notched. Didn't think I was going to get the grinder down in there. Had to do a little chisel action too.

I also plan on making my own tools.

Where did you find brass/copper brush heads? I have been looking around and cannot find any at a reasonable price.

BTW your oven is looking very nice. and a prime choice in beer if I do say so.

6 x 19 Brass/Flat Scrub Brush - Gordon Brush

I found these and they only sell in packs of 12 but if someone was interested in taking some I could work out a deal to reship them via priority mail and thy would only be about $16 each or 2 for $25

Any one interested?

Chip
