Default Re: 36" or 42"

Im in the same boat. I also plan on building a 40" oven. So it seems like 20" interior height. 20" door opening width and 13.34" door width. Sound right?

V-wiz, I don't remember what the plans show as a door width. My 43 has a 20 inch wide doorway.

For a 42" oven it states 20" in width. So for a 2" smaller oven it may change?

I don't know of any real rules regarding the width of the door. I think what you want is something wide enough to access every part of the oven interior without too much difficulty. The downside of too much width is keeping the heat in the oven and of course in extreme supporting the dome. I think you'll be fine with 18" to 20". You won't likely be building 16" pizzas, but it might be your standard..

One of the most difficult parts of the build is trying to anticipate what you need then deciding and committing.

This thread is very helpful and will help with your design and build.

Thank you, i read that thread but ill go thru it again. I think i will just do that. So the more important part is making sure the door height is the correct .667% so it draws correctly? and not so much the width of the door opening? Thanks again.

I think the number you are looking for is 63% not 66.7% but given the "science" behind that figure or lack there of, that is really splitting hairs.

Lol ya sometimes keeping it simple and just getting it done is the right way. I think we stress to much about the finer details, atleast that's my case.
