David, you are certainly more handy than the normal person....Do you consult for the Red Green show on PBS?

I like your vision in that addition. Must have been a work of love. Well done. I don't think many bona fide architects could have put more things in that one space

David,

That entire installation with the clock above the oven is rediculously cool! Nice oven tool bin, too.

Last winter it filled with ice melt run-off, refroze and broke. If you use an unused piece of flue tile to hold your tools, use your angle grinder to cut big notches in the bottom, at least in the back.

Thanks for the complements.

Great thoughts, comments, and advice, but I would like to steer this thread back toward its original direction because:

IMO Wiley's entrance is one of the great ones and one of the most creative in terms of using alternative materials (as is his oven!). This kind of inspiration is what keeps me coming back to this forum.

Genius takes many forms. Sometimes it hides. I see a lot of it on this forum and keep coming back for that reason too. I feel like I'm swimming upstream with the tweaks I want to try....I want to push the edges, without making a mistake I'll regret. So, I'm trying to listen more.

I've been told an oven entrance by ThermoJax has the characteristics I'm interested in -I can't find it- can anyone help me locate a picture of it?

Is this (ThermoJax's 42 oven) what you're looking for?

Yes David it is....Thanks a lot!

I'm incorporating his oven flair for sure, I'd like to have an opening shaped like his, just lifted 2.5 inches at the bottom corners for peel freedom.

Wiley, Brickie,

I built my oven for many of the reasons that were mentioned above. I enjoy cooking, but curiosity was also a huge driving force. I enjoyed baking bread in the past and had found the Alan Scott ovens on line but when I found plans for a more flexible WFO and a community of builders I was lured in by the possibilities. When I finished high school I worked in construction for a few years, it appealed to my enjoyment of problem solving, creating and discovery. Masonry wasn’t anything that I had any skills in so when I tore down the wood deck I had an opportunity to clean up the drainage and put in a workable patio with a WFO and learn a few new things.

The WFO is just fun.. I keep tweaking the entry for convenience and aesthetics and the door for heat efficiency.

Chris
