Christo,
Cool lighting. It's hard to believe the lights can take the heat.

BTW, I think I see some ash in there, dirty boy

We decided to go with the lights in the backsplash -- which will be good for preparation and eating, but not for looking into the oven.

Does anybody have a clip-on light that they use and like that shines into the oven?

James, what about the flexible lights mounted to the oven wall, that can flex into the oven for lighting when needed? This is similar to the oven lights you see on grills. I was kind of thinking about this while planning my lighting.

Halogen work lights made for machine tools are designed for rough service, and the bulbs are sealed to prevent damage from chips and coolant.



They're a bit pricey, but it might be worth it in a place subject to weather and swinging peels. Make sure you don't get the magnetic base model, which wouldn't do anyone any good here except Aaron4osu and his steel plate oven.

what about a hat with a lamp on it? I have twinkle lights all round and a chandelier mounted on the side of the oven so I have lots of ambiance. I just occasionally need to see directly inside the oven and my hands are too full to hold a flashlight. I will let you know if I come up with something.

I've got a wall opposite my oven. I'm thinking about using track lighting to shine into the oven.

Thumbs up Re: Outdoor lighting

Hi all,
I'm at the point of building the new patio roof which will need to have good room type illumination (won't be able to get anything less past the other half who wants stadium type light power) as well as mood lighting.
Being constructed from rhs steel, I need to include adjustable down lighting over the eating area but Dusty has given me enthusiasm to look into gas lighting as I will be piping natural gas to the wall heaters so can illuminate the area as well.
The kitchen bench area will be well lit probably with a pair of fluoros, possibly like a pool table reflector to constrain the light to that area.
The oven has wonderful lighting with 2 x 240 v downlights mounted in the chimney void and aimed across the oven opening onto the floor. See:

http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f21/...10-a-2119.html

permalink #7 for the details and pics

The pic below was in the early stages before the doors were made and fitted.
The oven lights have not yet been cleaned and work an absolute treat, no shadows to block your view and really shows off the whole ambience of the oven.
Thoroughly recommended for those who can make and fit the very simple fittings.

I will try to post some pictures of our lighting. We have a covered patio, post and beam construction with exposed 1x6 T&G clear cedar. We put low voltage track lighting in the eves to accent the T&G. We also put in a low voltage spot for the pizza oven and fire place. The spot does a pretty good job of lighting the pizza hearth. However it does not cast a lot of light into the oven. If I have a good flame it is not an issue. When The fire is dying down and I do not add wood, I need a flash light. I am not sure how I would do it different. The low voltage circuit is on a dimmer and I can adjust the brightness. I also have some 3" can lighting in the overhead beams for the patio. They are also on a dimmer.
