Default Chimney Cap

I think I participated in a thread about this before, but for the life of me I can't find it. What did you all use for a chimney cap? I'm most interested in ideas than a store-bought terra cotta one.

Les's for example, is bad ass.

Thanks!

If money were not a problem - I'd go here!

Custom Copper Designs (no personal experience with them)

and likely buy this:


There are a lot of pretty copper caps out there but they all seem to be 1000USD or lots more!

I bought a cap from Home Despot and stuck it up there as I could not decide on a cap at the time... it's still up there and still does not look right...

I agree - Les makes a pretty cap! (he's a BA for sure!)

This pipe and cap combination came from Habitat for Humanity store, for maybe $20 USD.

Chris, I love that one, too, but I really don't feel like paying $1000 for it! If only Habitat had one here...

Thumbs up Re: Chimney Cap

Hi Amber
I made my own and incorporated a spark arrester into the design.
Nothing flash but practical.
Now the flue goes up through the patio roof and the cap is unseen unless you venture up into the back garden and look back onto it.
I personally don't think it is worth spending money and time on the less important things, so long as the oven works well and holds it's heat for baking.
However, if you have a masonry chimney or a short terracotta or steel flue, a nice cap can add to the aesthetics of your oven appearance

Remember this thread? They're not metal, but the variety is very cool.

Wow, those are some great ideas. I may just have to do a temporary one and then find/make a cool one.
