    That's what I'm talkin' about! The only thing better would be the adding "the heart light" (fire from within the oven) .

    Just so happen.... The camera in my Samsung Note 3 is incredible! Wow, just went out there to a SEA of flying insects! Didn't think about that! Doh!

    I don't think I am qualified to give advice yet.....but give it a month and fix it if you still want to. I have a very large patio that is Stamped Concrete. It is beautiful. Imagine 3 cement trucks coming to your house - full of cement. It's 30 yards. I was very crazy about how it looked and not messing it up. It was all sealed and pretty.

    Now, I love it with all it's imperfections and age. I learned to appreciate the way it looks after it ages etc.

    But if your door doesn't work properly, only you can decide what to do.
    Good luck.

    G'day
    My first carved ACC door I made to perfect and once the door got hot it expanded and jammed in the revile. Easy, just wait until it cools I thought. Hours later I put some pressure on the handles and the door shot out of the revel like a champagne cork. The pressure had built up behind with the heat.
    Sometimes a perfect seal is not a desirable thing. A little leak is not going to be a great heat loser for you.
    Regards dave

    Ha, I was just reading thru my whole thread (while watching Forrest Gump) recalling all of the great comments, advice, humor, and psychology....

    My only concern is that "door ding" is right where my door will seal against the reveal. Thinking I'll mix up a Tablespoon of Heat Stop with some tiny firebrick pieces in it and try to regain the original form. Its my nature to want to "fix" it!

    Kind of like getting the first door ding on a new car. Like Dave says, soot will soften the look, it just looks worst with the contrast right now. Pizza and food will taste the same.

    Recon you only feel bad because it looks raw. A bit of smoke staining will soften that up and you'll never know

    Thanks Mate!

    I use a charcoal chimney starter set in the vent area which heats up the flue well. After the charcoal or wood is going good, I pour them on the oven floor and add wood. Works good, although on windy days I have had some smoke coming out of the front till the fire got going good. I guess this is down side of going with a larger flue (I have a 9" X 18 " flue opening). I've only seen a few build that lack smoke stains. The perfect flue design still eludes most of us.

    I'm sure we will enjoy many year of fun and enjoyment, smoke stains or not.
    Thanks KB, That makes me feel better
