Default Insulated oven door.

Insulated oven door.

Here is an insulated oven door Ive just completed for the new oven.
Its fairly simple, 2 sheets of aluminium, 2 strips for the edges and some calcium silicate board in between.

I had to get some welding done at the local shop and all up with materials cost about $50.

The pic of the door in front of the oven doesnt show where the door really goes as the oven was lit when I took the pic.

I love the hands. What are they made of?
How thick did you make the door?

The hands are from a child mannequin and made of some sort of resin.
The door is 50mm thick.
Just checked the temp and the outside of the door is 20c above ambient with the oven at 300c

Is that carbon in the corners burning off quicker now?

Seems to be, as with all ovens the more its fired the sweeter it seems to get.
It doesnt really cool down now between firings as the old oven used to, tonight we have a beef stew in there.

Ive also got onto a good reliable source of free Oz hardwood firewood in the last few days so its all good.

I enjoy getting wood and the best wood is free wood.

Originally I had a insulated door made for me at a local sheet metal business. I designed it with a capped 1" space between two metal sheets. I then used perlite as the insulating fill. I found that although I liked the "firing door" for roasts, ribs, & beans - its weight made it cumbersome to use during active baking like bread. I had a second, lighter "working door" made that I now use during pizza & bread bakes. Its handle was cut from an old welding tool handle and stays quite cool during use. I can lift the working door with my left hand while I use my right hand to put the loaves or pizza on the loaded peel into the oven.

I've attached a picture showing the two doors together at the oven. The second pic shows the lighter door painted with high-temp black (the dragonfly cutout is high-temp white).
