Still no stand for the WFO, use pipe scaffolding and corrugated sheet metal to keep the rain away... Also doing pizza "Japanese way" --ON YOUR KNEES--
Brickie might like that comment! At least I have settled on a location for the oven. Need to crash my wood pile structure and make a larger one that will accommodate the oven in the same construction...plan to make it out of 2" square tubing and c channel. Should be cheap enough and keep the weather away. That is the most important thing anyway...not trying to make an architectural statement. Just a simple build.

Could not find the photos--now OK.
scaffold WFO cover for week-end.
wood pile structure to be crashed and rebuilt.
chimney cap to keep rain out during a downpour! Man did we have rain both Saturday and Sunday--but oven still dry!
View inside "crack less" oven after maybe 15 hot burns--still "Crack less castable" Harrah!!

Nice door Mikku. Very tidy indeed.

You might get your crust to puff some if you back the toppings off a bit from the edge but they do look tasty!

Thanks for the advice. Have not tried the pizza directly on the brick yet--have to make the right tools. Eventually I will find the right routine and make some very special pizzas---maybe? What we made on Sunday, put smiles on the faces of the youngsters and oldsters that showed up. A fun for all evening --a break from the summer heat!

Just thought I should link to page 20 on my build. I created 3 doors.
I used technology that was quick and easy for me. I did not want to spend days or weeks just for doors. The insulated doors have good thermal conductivity characteristics, as metal is limited to the hot face side.

http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/51/n...-19976-20.html (New 36inch castable build in Brisbane)

Hope it helps someone.

Good to see someone built a portal pot lid door, I never use mine with a live fire but nice job on yours.

That "pot lid" door is awesome. Any idea what the thermal limits would be with something like that (i.e. what would be too hot)?

I only use mine for baking bread and such.

The window (pot lid) will become covered in condensation and will drip water on the inside until the temp equalizes.

I have a 550 degree oven max when using it so not sure what the top range is.

BTW ... I do use it in the winter at -10F so the temperature spread in the winter is well over 550F degrees. No Problems with thermal shock so far but I take care not to drop the door in the snow when it is hot.

Hi ATK406

The door is great and use it the most. The photo shows the door in "blast door mode"
and inside face is stainless steel around the port hole (pot lid). The photo shows the door pulled back from the oven dome entrance. The thermometer gets to 200c - 250c max. Most of the heat goes up the flue. And think the door would reflect back some heat. It also looks good

My build has a a flared entrance, (its not brick) and has a couple of inches gap around the door in the photo.

Note that it works equity well for baking, and bread, though I am still in the experimental stage with the oven.

Cheers.
