Wood brick oven door in 60 minutes

This door is quickly made out of a hard wood type. Before baking or roasting in the oven, when the oven is required to be closed, prior the use this door is first soaked in water for over night.

It is easy to make this door. It's just a little bit of simple wood work. But the door lasts longer when it is saturated with water before is is used.

Especially in the earliest stages of baking or roasting with the wooden door closing off the oven entrance (a perhaps both of these culinary activities at the same time), the oven is hotter at start therefore the water naturally keeps the door cooled down. This way the door will last many occasions! Otherwise the door is not being used, at all, when the oven is being fired or when we are cooking pizzas or making other grills and open roasts while the active fire is being used inside these ovens.
