Hi Ross,

Luckily I have got a friend that has a lot of welding stuff in his garage. Couldn’t have done it without him.

We basically welded two metal sheets together with and air gab in between. The original idea was to fill the gap in with installation fibres but decided against it because I am worried about getting the fibres into the food. The handles are made from metal rod and file handles. We got the whole door made in about 3 hours.

The metal rod was from B&Q. I bought the file handles from the internet. 90p each!

I have also started a new thread about the door.


If you want more information let me know.

Enjoy the Pizza party!

First Pizza!

This was an absolute success, the pizza were just jammy. We also used the heat to try some bread afterwards.

I am still amazed how the oven keeps its temperature. We had Pizza’s on Saturday night and the inside temperature on Monday morning was still 80degC!
