I'm looking for an inexpensive way to do this.
And believe me when I say I don't what to sound like a smart but. But if you aren't going to be helpful  why post an answer.

  Because sometimes we goof around here.

But in all seriousness Semon, granite has been known to explode and we don't want that for you.  :chef:

If you have a local pottery shop try them for a kiln shelf....works great and can usually be had fairly inexpensively.

You can work with just one shelf....an additional one above would be nice....definitely don't need the sides though.

What type of oven do you have?  And where are the burners/ elements located?

Tscarborough is a stone mason so he has knowledge in this area.

Granite is not a refractory material and is not heat tolerant so it may shatter upon exposure to the temps in the oven.

Semon,
I'm only an auto restorer.  ;D
But I've recently started flipping houses too and some of them have granite counter tops in them.  8)

Correction, I am not a stone mason, Stonecutter is a stone mason.  I sell masonry products, but only do a couple of small side jobs a year, plus stuff at mi casa..

As stated, granite is not refractory, and sometimes is violently not refractory.

The bad part of writing or reading some thing is that it is hard to tell how it was meant.
I do appreciate all comments.

Something to think about.

It doesn't get much cheaper than firebrick, as far as suitable materials are concerned.

You can use soap stone.  I found some soap stone stair treads that I use for sides and top of my knock down portable wood fired oven.
