      I just plan to build a small "counter top" with steel studs and concrete board next to my oven. I found a 24" x 6 ft piece of granite for $100 which I plan to use for the actual counter/pizza prep. I might run some electric to it (maybe a small refrig if the wife isn't looking) but no sink.

      Good luck.

        I was thinking about having a couple of wood tops (say 24" wide) that could slide under the oven in the foundation area when not in use. Then when you were using the oven they could attach to the sides of the oven foundation and have fold-out legs on the other ends. This way they are out of site when the oven isn't being used and no need to make a giant cooking area on both side of the oven.

        What you think could this be a good way.

          Guys is there any lights available that can be installed in the dome of the oven that can withstand the heat that these ovens are capable of putting out.

            Hi Ikhan 42,

            Depending on your chimney size, you might consider the downlights. I am wrapped in their efficiency and they really light up the whole floor, making it very easy to work without truing to hold a wobbling light where you need it.

              I embedded some halogen lights in the decorative arched opening to my oven. The approach is very similar to Niels approach (he did his before me) - the difference is in the way the lights are mounted. Still considering going the 12VDC approach but for now lamps are 120VAC protected by GFI circuit.

              So far - I have a light grey soot coating on the lamps - but no appreciable layer, The angle, combined with their being pairs lights up the inside of the oven very well. Their location is far from the inside of the oven and temps remain relatively low at the arch area. I intend to mortar a small piece of brick and wire cover to act as a guard against someone touching the lamp...

              Good luck and think safety!!

                Neill,

                Thanks for that will read the info now. I figure if I can have light in the oven then that woudl be better than a miners light on my head. I know my friend would have a field day with me wearing a miners hat while cooking.

                Christo,

                I like your idea of mouting the light into the brickwork of the arch helps to protect the wire from heat. Did you wrap the wire in Insulation ?

                I will be looking at using 12V Lights rather than the 240V option and am thinking of incasing it in a glass enclosure made from the same glass used inside ovens doors.
