Default Burned up my door!

Well, I fired the oven all day yesterday for a pizza party. About 10 PM I scraped out the coals and put the door on to retain heat for cooking today...

I came out this morning to a totally burned door. All the wood burned out of it. I have been using this door for a while, so not sure what the difference was...there could have still been some coals in the oven, I usually swab it down a bit and did not do that...anyway, I needed a new door, because mine was ugly, but no baking or retained heat cooking today!

No damage to the oven at all...it actually burned out some of the soot from the vent.

Wooden door...sounds like a three little pigs story.....Wasn't it straw, wood or brick......

Good luck with the new one!

CJ used a castable insulation material but FB board would be great. I'm wondering about recycling an old stove door and casting insulation on the back..might be pretty heavy!

Drake,
Do you know what the temperature inside your WFO was when you closed her up?

It seems to me that two doors are in order. One, very well insulated, that is designed to hold high heat for long periods. And a second for shorter periods of time at lower temps. The second would be for baking bread and the first for holding the heat overnight.

At the moment I'm planning on building two doors (and I'm planning on stacking block for the stand today so my oven is not completed). Since I have to wait while concrete cures I may build my doors while I'm waiting. I may be speeding things up too much right now.... I just poured the slab last Friday. A delay of a day is just 24 hours, while a crack lasts forever.

Hey Man!

I am not sure if you noticed.
But from your pictures.. it looks like your door burned up.

What a bummer.

But... you get to make another.. and sometimes that is good.
That way you can change the things that you may not have liked.... or that didn't work the way that you wanted.

I have to build a new one too.

Mine is just to tight and it hangs on the bricks.

I made it out of sheet metal, with the intention of filling it with vermiculite.
I have some pictures some where........

Post some pics when you finish your new one. It will be neat to compare the two.

I'm not sure, but I think there are some concerns about small fibers from the board. I know some WFO'ers are doing it that way. But I think it would be best to encapsulate the board somehow.

Or maybe I'm just full of it.

tongue was somewhat planted in cheek but yes encapsulate it like you would is you got your hands on a batch of asbestos. I would tend to frome inside of steel angle iron and then "plaster" over it with FB mortar mix. Yep heat sink and then insulation.
