Very nice indeed. A fire within would probably sorted some bugs for you and have looked good too but it is a build to be proud of.

Congratulations.

Finally got my door! SS, 2" filled with CFB, pieces like a puzzle staggered to a snug fit. The SS doesn't necessarily fit the look I was going for but I wanted a quality piece that fit like a glove above all. It did, after some grinding on the handles. I used Nomex gasket material that Ive used on my Big Green Eggs. We'll see how that goes. Not using the oven much lately but will fire it next week.

Garner, I have been planing on getting a string of lights like that. They are like the ones that I have seen Italy at outdoor cafes. Where did you find the materials to build your own? The few places that have ready made ones seem to want a lot of money for them.

Here's a source for you for good prices on high quality light strings:

Mountain Top Light Strings Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Medium Base Light String 14AWG, w/Plug, 48 Ft. Long 24" Spacing with Suspensor - Light Strings Commercial - Budget Lighting Inc.

I ordered this string + bulbs. I found a coupon somewhere online and I think that the it was <$100 for a 48' string.

Sorry, clicked too fast...at the partylights.com site, you can buy a custom length if the 48' is too long or short. For the bulbs, I ordered them from amazon: 2x Novelty Lights, Inc. 11-S14-CL Commerical Grade S14 Replacement Bulbs, E27 Medium Base, Clear, 11 Watt, 25 Pack
Sold by Novelty Lights, Inc for 21.90

Lowes.
It was really easy to make these and they have been very dependable so far. The Pieces went together very well. The benefit to making your own is that you can put the lights exactly where you want them and put as many as you want.

Havent been on here a while. Some "interesting" builds going on for sure. It dawned on me that I started mine exactly 1 year ago this week.
Havent used it as much as many of you do but have plans next week, I even have a culture brewing in the kitchen hoping it will boost my dough a tad.
A few dead Live Oaks means I have an abundance of wood so I build a rustic wood shed out of our dreaded Mountain Cedar. Bugs dont like it and it lasts forever, this should provide me some dry wood (if it ever rains again) for the WFO and the BBQ Pit. It was a challenge building something out of a material that wasnt square or uniform but we had fun. Cost about $50
