sorry about the delay.

it would have to be 200 dollars - not including shipping.
I filled mine with insualting concrete and it works great.

its pretty time consumiing and the materials aren't cheap.

All I would need is a cardboard template of your oven opening.

The door is about 1.5 inches thick so it stands on its own. No need
to lean it.

I am located in san jose ca incase you want to see it in person and
save on shipping it.

Hi Michele,
I sent you a private message a month or so ago, but now I see you're back! Thanks for informing on the price.
I have some left over 2" FB blanket (ceramic blanket) so what do think about using that to stuff the void in the door? It would be lighter by a little bit and from what I've read here on the forum, 4" of insulating concrete is the same as 2" insulation blanket. So theoretically, stuffing it with the insulation might be a tad more efficient. Either way, I like your door and will contact you on making one for me. Thanks, Dean

michelevit, That is a great looking door. I am trying to have something fabricated using stainless steel, and I am trying to keep costs down. I can get the material for a front and back to sandwich a 1" U-channel. I was planning on using stainless steel barrel nuts with mated screws to keep it all together.

Do you have any experience drilling through stainless? I don't know how much it would be to have it welded, but I am guessing a bunch. I like your design though

Stainless is tough. Use a 135 degree split-tip cobalt or titanium bit, slow speed, preferably drill press, with a lubricant or coolant. Good luck.
