Made good progress on getting the vent in place this weekend. I found a 8"x12" ceramic liner in the area which will sit atop the base pictured below in a sleve yet to be built. The vent opening stretches the entire width of the arch and needed to be reduced to the size of the liner, otherwise I could have done with a whole lot less cuts.

Hi Jim,

A suggestion, why not post the pictures of your cuts in the photo gallery, too. They show the cuts you made so well. I'm sure future oven builders will be interested to see them, and its sometimes easier to find things in the gallery that burried in among the threads here...

Beautiful vent, Jim. I absolutely love the detail of your entry and arch.

Beautiful flared opening. I wish I would have thought of that!

Thanks all, as important as your guidance, the support keeps me going though these cold Wisconsin nights!

Just saw the vent and it's unanimous! If that's not the best of the month, I can't wait to see what is. That looks really nice, Jim. Very clean and neat.

Another thing I want to copy, SORRY, but there is so many insperations on this forum. But I'm getting way ahead of myself, tomorrow I'm putting the stand up - hopefully it's not raining. I'm wondering how much room from the 42" circle to build out the floor? 12" :confused:
