Default Re: Continued Design Ideas

I thought I'd mention how I built the door. But first, here's the old door design, made out of redwood, soaked in water all day then after pizzas, I cleaned out the coals and put the door in overnight so I could cook bread the next morning. About 2:00 I woke up to a heavy smoke smell coming in my bedroom window.



My new door is much better. I created a basket out of metal lath the shape of my oven opening then filled it with perlcrete made from a modified home brew by substituting sand with perlite. I finished it with a skim coat of home brew. So far it is holding up pretty well. The area where the mesh is showing is where I had to sand down the skim coat to fit in the opening.



Here's the door in place and my oven surrounded by squash.
