Thanks guys,

It's going on about a year and a half of my free time...........I think it's time to sit back relax and enjoy ..............for awhile.

Daughter's High school Graduation party on Saturday. I would like to have had my cabinet doors installed by then, but don't think I'll meet the dead line.
It will be a day of celebration, as she is the youngest of my three children.
Looking forward to having a great time.

Still lots to do:
Build cabinet doors. The cedar you see on the sides are only temporary. scraps from my buddies' kitchen remodel

Tile back splash, still looking for ideas on tile choices, suggestions appreciated.

Finish chimney extension and touch up painting.

Build oven doors for holding heat and different type of smoking and cooking.

Add flood lighting above oven on screen enclousure.

The list goes on and on
Kbartman, I was thinking on the same lines with the flashing. I had a stainless pan, 3 sided, made up. It has 3 inch legs turned upward.But what I did different right or wrong is I had the pan made 9 inches wider than the vent width. So the pan is to the outside of the vent brick. First I mixed up some sand and portland cement, a little on the rich side. I troweled this from the front of the oven entry towards the outside of the vent. I did this too get "positive" pitch out of the vent. Then I simply set pan into the grout and tapped it in place, fastened with a couple lead drives at the outside corners to prevent movement of the pan. Next I cut the vent brick on each side wall to get back to level. I would say in the 16 inch depth of my vent, I have at least a 1/2 inch of pitch. Now I am trying to decide my next choice. I would like to put 1 3/16 thick granite in the vent and firebrick rips under the granite. Hence no insulation in the vent area. Give me your thoughts, What type of caulking did you use in the vent area? Is it fire caulk, what temp does it burn? What did you do with the thermal break joint? Thanks Wayne , alias Campmaki

Wing nuts for quick adjustments and setup. Marine varnished hopefully the wood does'nt swell......Time to build......just do it.......Hope works out for me.
I patterned my jig right off your build, worked beautifully. Thanks KBM

Hi KB has been a while.

That looks great an amazing build and all but finished. Think I have a ways to go yet.

Rest for you not far away.

I still have

Keystone in decorative arch, more fun and time than anything else.
finish dome render
render base
sliding draw in base for tools
sealing coat over dome
make door if I learn TIG welding [have no idea and in practice have made some bloody big holes

some detail items

then I get stuck into the area either side and behind oven.

then rest of yard

Good luck with that Colin. At least you have a plan. A plan is good.

Would love to see some pictures of your drip pan. Mine was a after thought, would have worked better as you described. I still think it will serve the purpose.

I used a 3m fire barrier sealant caulk. not sure what the temperature rating is but sure held up to the weather and the heat on my temporary chimney cover vent. The other caulks I used I was not happy with. it seemed to be the best option at the time.

My heat break is a combination of insulating fire brick stainless steel tube and ceramic fiber rope, band and koalwool caulking.

Thanks Colin. You will get there....Rome was not built in a day.

I was able to get the tile back splash completed this week and the grouting done, post pictures later.

The daughter's graduation party went well, every one loved the WFO.



PS Campmaki, temporary chimney cover picture that I used the caulking on.

Kbartman here is a picture of my pans design. What are you using for your vent floor? What is going to be under your finished top vent floor surface? Are you insulating under that floor? Do we need to insulate the vent floor? I came up with the flashing pan so my insulation under the dome would not wick water, so why would we put insulation under the area that has the greatest chance of getting wet?

Because insulation is not about waterproofing. Since you don`t live in the rain forest, rain is just a minor inconvenience, but every time you fire your oven without insulation heat will be wicked into you support slab, which cost you both money and time.
