    Re: Show us your Door Thread

    Here's my door. I've come at it from a different angle. I like the traditional look of a wood door. They are cheap and easy to make, relatively light compared to steel and don't conduct like a metal door does.
    Mine weighs 2.6 Kgs and is used one handed.
    175 x 430 x 19 mm Quilla timber
    insulating panel 12 mm bio millboard (no nasty fibres) attached to wood door with 4.5 mm 316 SS bolts.
    downside is that the thin insulating panel will start to cook the door if left in place for over 3 hrs at temps above 300 C. This is not a problem because I don't roast or bake for that long or at those temps.

    Did you caste the pearlcrete yourself and while I'm asking is it shaped to fit the revel

    The best part is the hitch ring...it came from a granite post next to a house from the 18th century I helped dismantle about 14 years ago.

    Nice find. Because that ring has only one small contact point with the bolt, it won't get too hot.

    All the floor joists and sills were ruined by dry rot and powder post beetles...they were junk. Almost all of the rafters, roof boards and frame were numbered and sold to someone that re-built it somewhere else. So it was preserved in a way. I saw the home too...the contractor did an awesome job.

    I have been around when a few historic homes had to be demolished. Lots of EPA stuff with lead paint and asbestos sometimes prevents saving them...but we were able to salvage some material and hardware before they crunched it up with an excavator. The ring came from a site like that...and I'm glad I have it instead of it being lost forever.

    First one was an experiment that lasted 2 yrs and cause it still worked I never got around to making a better one. Made one for a friend so I made my current one which is a yr old. Hebels disadvantage is that its soft and chips easy. So unless you drop or treat it roughly you will get good use like me.
    I could work well as a temporary door cause of the cheapness and ease of construction to allow you to use the oven whilst you make the door of your dreams

    I have poor metal working skills so the door I use is carved from 2 inches of airated concrete block , hebel. The stuffs light soft and easy carved with woodworking tools chisels and rasped etc. The wood face is silasticed to the front and this remains cool I never have hot handles. You'll find a link at the bottom of the post
    Hope something helps
    Regards dave

    Dino- there are a lot of welds.
    The door is the result of some horse trading if you know the term.
    My friend is a professional fabricator who needed some carpentry work done.
    I did the carpentry work for free, he fabricated my door to my plans--for free.
    I think that I got the better part of the deal...he has all the tools to fabricate any shape imaginable...works with steel, stainless steel, aluminum--also can weld food grade (like making a cooking vessel-welding one side and inside is a perfect weld as well) his work is amazing.. the door is what I thought I wanted--screws are for disassembly to install insulation--later will be sealed with the stove cement and rope. I hope for him to make some of my tools as well---just need him to order more carpentry projects!

    Nice selection! Keep 'em coming!

    Dino - looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I'm sure it will be nice based on your oven build. Even though it didn't work for me, I still think that you could find someone through CL Gigs to weld a door if you've already cut the parts.
