Default Oven opening and vent design detail

Can anyone direct me to some photos of the oven opening and vent design details? I am having trouble getting this part straight in my mind.

Also, I would like to post the photos of my build so far. What is the best way to do this?

Thanks

lhuhn;

now that you have started a thread, if you reply to your own thread you will be able to add photos by clicking on "Manage Attachments" under "Additional Options" at the bottom of the window where you type your reply.

Most of us have difficulty visualising the transition to the opening and vent as dmun has suggested take a look at the photo gallery he has linked, though I get more value out of reading people's build threads and looking at the photos they post along with the questions about the opening and vent transitions. It also helps to sketch it out to work out the dimensions if you are that way inclined. I sketch mine to scale, see examples attached

Hello everyone,
I am building a 28" internal diameter oven, so should the chimney diameter be less that 6"?

Thanks

Hi Eddie,

The new oven build on your site looks good; don't forget to install a reveal against which your oven door will go. I've not built an oven before, but have been around wood stoves most of my life. I wouldn't go less that 6" as it may (probably will) impede the draft. Also I do not think you'll find too many manufacturers of stove pipe for wood burning appliances that is smaller than 6" in diameter. The pipe that is smaller than 6" is usually for natural gas/propane, etc. Furthermore you may run into code issues if you try.

I would not only advise the reveal for a solid door seal, but also to flare the vent sides and extend them out, line the floor with firetiles, and use that area as a fireplace. Perhaps some fireplace cranes for pots.

Thanks Gene and Thermojax,
If you see my oven that I built in Jacksonville, you will see that I did leave a reveal for the door, and that was important to me as well, and proved to be very practical especially when you want to leave the oven warm overnight to bake some bread next morning. So, of course I will leave a reveal on this one as well. My oven in Jax was 36" in diameter, but this one is 28", and that is why I paused the question because I wanted to make sure I do not impact the draw.
Thanks again.

Here's a single pic of mine:



And if you click here, there are 30 more of arch-vent-transition, etc.:

This is one of the hardest parts to "see" in your brain how it's going to work. But you'll get thru it.

Good luck, Dino

i wish that i had that extra "rise" in my transition. i just continued the arch and built my chimney flue flush. i get a little more smoke coming out of the front of the oven (at start up) than i had hoped for, and it's really no big deal, but it discolors the terra cotta tile that i framed the opening with...

Just dive in and start building it, it will become evident as you go.
