It reads Family.

Thanks Russell and Jonathan! It took a while to finish it, but my nephew did a great job! He's in the service, a Marine based out of Camp Pendleton, and he's a welder.

Les, V-wiz is correct, it says "Family" in Spanish, with a little personal touch to the right of that (obscured for privacy reasons).

I'm excited to be working on the WFO again to finish it this summer!

Happy building & cooking to you all!

In Spanish? I thought that was English?

It's in Spanish. I accidently removed the "a" at the end when I obscured the rest...

Hey fellow FB members/builders!

I'm posting to see if any of you have any Ceramic Rope left over from your projects that you might be willing to part with.

My WFO door has arrived and it needs ceramic rope all the way around. I just need a length of rope to finish it.

Anybody out there that can help? If yes, please send me a PM.

Thanks!

Hi Aceves,

Nice build! Question how much does that door weigh it looks heavy? Did you insulate it?

Looking to build similar.

Thanks.

Kurt

Hi Kurt,

Thanks! Yes, the door is heavy - 25 lbs! And I did insulate it, I kept a piece of the insulation roll aside just for the door. I doubled it up with 2.5 inches of insulation in between both metal panels. I should do the trick.

Once you start your build, post photos.

Take care.

Did some work this weekend. We installed the bullnose ledge all the way around, and the bullnose ledge right in front of my oven, on top of the smaller bullnose bricks. It didn't come out perfect, but it came out good nonetheless. I just say it adds character!

As you may recall in my past posts, that key below is my key in the stone, my "keystone." It is a corkscrew/bottle opener, all in one.

Now on to the final arch, and the doors, and the sink, and the.....

Just picked up some ceramic fiberglass rope for my door, along with high temp glue to stick the rope to the door and black high temp paint to protect the metal. Door should be done in the next few days and I will post pics.

I'm happy to be working on the WFO again.

Been busy with finishing the WFO project! We've installed the outdoor sink and faucet. All the plumbing and drainage is done. I'll post pics soon (forgot to take pics during the installation).

I've also completed my WFO door. I put on 3 coats of high temp stove paint in black, and glued a length of ceramic rope to the outer lip with high temp glue. Check out the pics below.

I have also finished my doors for my counters and have installed 2 of them. I just need to install the rest and stain & seal them with varnish. These are all hand-made doors made from cedar wood planks. I like the look right now, hopefully the wood grain will come out better once they are varnished.

More pics to come!
