Default Ellie's Oven Complete w/ Door

Hi everyone,
Seems like a long time has passed but have been insanely busy with the garden this summer.

Here is the finally finished oven with the door a friend made for me. I made a few pizzas but really want to use it as an oven and can't wait to do it.

Many thanks to all of you who helped me along the way. I sure appreciate this forum and the good folks in it.



Close up of the door:

Thanks. While I was curing the paint for the door, the little fire wasn't to be wasted. I warmed up some tri tip that was previously barbecued. Even just warming it up gave such a warm, smoked flavor!!

Thanks, Drake. To the left under that wood is a regular barbecue with two rack heights so that I can grill with wood or briquettes. To the right under the counter is storage.

Just for the record and in case some of you weren't following when it was built, I hired a mason to do the job. He was out of work (not much call for a mason in these times) and I didn't have a lot of money, lol. It worked out great! I asked the forum for help when we got stuck, and I am so very pleased with the results.

Thumbs up Re: Ellie's Oven Complete w/ Door

Hi again Ellie,
good to see you back again.
I thought you had disappeared a little like myself.
Good to see that you have finished your oven finished and hopefully enjoying using it.
