I like the cap. As Frances noted -- it fits perfectly with the rest of your kitchen. Simple, elegant, well-executed. Great!

Les,
One more thing. Is your work surface light permanently fixed and hardwired? Or is it battery?

Thanks James. The lights are permanently mounted and wired. And as I stated in a way earlier post – drilling through the porcelain is NO fun.

How cool! You just finished yours this weekekend and I just started mine. Poured the foundation. I have to build into a slope and tie in an existing wall so the hearth will be a little slow going. Congrats on the project, I will be refering to your thread throughout my build. Thanks to all in advance, for the help.

Well, I think I can say without any fear of contradiction that the outside of your oven is of a piece with the inside - as near perfect as I've seen so far...

Now lets see if your bread and pizza can keep up. It'll be a hard act to follow, but no pressure, eh?

Great work Les.
I will continue the "ball busting " - Now that you have your pic for Better Homes and Garden, WFO Living (if there is such a thing), and Reb Book - When do we eat? When is the party? are we all invited for WFO Thanksgiving turkey?

In case I forgot...SUPER FANTASTIC JOB!!!
