Pizza oven door

One challenge with getting things done in a new place is figuring out what materials are available, then making do with what you find.  The plywood pizza oven door at the restaurant kept burning through so my project was to make a new one before people have to start going without pizza.  I have a small toolkit with me and thankfully the company also had a few power tools that I could use.

The door turned out pretty good.  It at least looks nicer than the plywood one.  Hopefully it holds up longer too.  I learned a couple things in the process:

1. Wear gloves when working with sheet metal

2. Don’t buy Chinese screws

3. If you want to  bend a piece of steel and drill holes in it do it in that order – bend, then drill.
