thanks, Dino
Dino- there are a lot of welds.
The door is the result of some horse trading if you know the term.
My friend is a professional fabricator who needed some carpentry work done.
I did the carpentry work for free, he fabricated my door to my plans--for free.
I think that I got the better part of the deal...he has all the tools to fabricate any shape imaginable...works with steel, stainless steel, aluminum--also can weld food grade (like making a cooking vessel-welding one side and inside is a perfect weld as well) his work is amazing.. the door is what I thought I wanted--screws are for disassembly to install insulation--later will be sealed with the stove cement and rope. I hope for him to make some of my tools as well---just need him to order more carpentry projects!

I have poor metal working skills so the door I use is carved from 2 inches of airated concrete block , hebel. The stuffs light soft and easy carved with woodworking tools chisels and rasped etc. The wood face is silasticed to the front and this remains cool I never have hot handles. You'll find a link at the bottom of the post
Hope something helps
Regards dave

[QUOTE=cobblerdave;157519]Gudday
First one was an experiment that lasted 2 yrs and cause it still worked I never got around to making a better one. Made one for a friend so I made my current one which is a yr old. Hebels disadvantage is that its soft and chips easy. So unless you drop or treat it roughly you will get good use like me.
I could work well as a temporary door cause of the cheapness and ease of construction to allow you to use the oven whilst you make the door of your dreams

My ghetto door until I make a real one.

The best part is the hitch ring...it came from a granite post next to a house from the 18th century I helped dismantle about 14 years ago.

Why did you destroy an 18th century home? We are hell bent in the west to preserve them. Buildings from the past are pretty hard to replicate.

Why did I destroy an 18th century home??? I didn't say destroy, I said dismantle...big difference.

All the floor joists and sills were ruined by dry rot and powder post beetles...they were junk. Almost all of the rafters, roof boards and frame were numbered and sold to someone that re-built it somewhere else. So it was preserved in a way. I saw the home too...the contractor did an awesome job.

I have been around when a few historic homes had to be demolished. Lots of EPA stuff with lead paint and asbestos sometimes prevents saving them...but we were able to salvage some material and hardware before they crunched it up with an excavator. The ring came from a site like that...and I'm glad I have it instead of it being lost forever.

Nice find. Because that ring has only one small contact point with the bolt, it won't get too hot.

Thanks David. The center if the door is a perlcrete slab about 3" thick, and the pin is
only about 2.5" . I think I'm going to use this on my real door, but Ill oil it.
