Thanks Russell. The door turned out nicely. Last night, two full days after making the pizza, the oven door thermometer still registered over 200 degrees. The oven appears to be holding heat well. Hopefully I will get the final coat of stucco on this week and the oven will be complete...

Hey Gene,

I have another question for you. What did you do to secure your countertops to the oven? I have been thinking of a couple options but I am curious what you did.

Thanks
Nate

Nate,

Since that area wouldn't (shouldn't...doesn't) get too warm, I just used silicone caulk beneath and between the counters. The ledge extends out far enough to almost completely support the bottom counter, so gravity is doing most of the work. The brick arch facade and stucco, along with the caulk, just prevent any lateral movement.

Thanks Gene. That's what I was guessing. Once again, it looks great!

Great job! And is there really any doubt about the addiction????
