Default Re: Dave's WFO door

Finally finished up the door.

It's a bit tight. So I will probably make another, and use this one as my draft door.

Here's the pic.

It works pretty well.

The handle is cool to the touch even when the inside is 550f plus.

Looks good Dave! Very nice! Wish mine were as nice...

... I'm currently using a slab of insulating concrete, after my wood doors actually caught fire It works well, but looks UGLY.

Dave,

Did you run the screws for the handle all the way through the door? I was wandering how much heat would be conducted to the handle.

thanks,

Les...

Sorry about your burned up door! Maybe you can make a new one and attach the insulating concrete to the inside....

Les,

Actually I ran the screws through the front section only. Then I riveted the last piece into place. My only is concern is what I will do if the screws loosen up!


Anyways... it was my first one. I want to build another using copper for the front. Hopefully I can find some brass rivets to match.


Dave

Copper would be cool! Nic work on the door, Dave.

I take it all your digits are still intact? No fingers lying in the dust.....
