One useful little bit of information I picked up here: don't use anything galvanised, because at high temps it produces toxic gasses.

I used my bandsaw for the peels - a scroll saw for the door (to big for the bandsaw).

Thanks guy's! I am up to six, but four of them are small just to slide stuff into the oven. I think I'm done with peels, My next project is going to be a tool for adding wood. Right now I am using a cheesy tong from a fire place set - not cool.

Les,
i like the "resourcefulness"...same reason why i like to stick with wood...being in the lumber biz. Also, you're developing quite the arsenal. Good work.

Scratch that thought! I went to Home Depot to price the steel, it would take at a minimum, $20.00. This thing was listed at $12.00, rang up at $7.00. Done!
