Default Oven door

I need to begin my oven door (unhinged for a dome arch) I am planning to use wood on the exterior but what material is suitable for the sandwiched layers. I am guessing something that reflects heat rather than absorbs. I attached two photos.

I used the type of insulation that is used for lining electric ovens. A trip to your local dump will score all you need.

Note that wood burns. I used aluminum to keep the weight down.

I salvaged it from old chimnea the we bought about 10 years ago. cast iron and not a spec of rust. The rest of the chimnea was little more than hardscape. It had a build in spark arrestor too, and it was bought and paid for.

I made mine out of aluminum, filled with loose vermiculite, and about a bucket full of pop-rivets.

Les Mine is similar to yours but I used a bit of concrete in with my vermiculite and I used sheet steel and a bunch of rivets. Then I riveted stove rope around the edge to help with the seal. My door is heavy but I fired and baked on Sunday and on Tuesday evening the oven was still too hot to lay your hand on the floor. The outside temps have been around -20 then add a windchill. So I think my door is keeping up with the rest of the oven.

Sheet aluminum, insulating blanket remnants, bunch of rivets, and a single handle from an old trowel. The whole door weighs less than 5 pounds.
