I have built this oven over the course of the last few months and finally found time to share the pictures.  I made my first pizzas in it on Saturday and will post the results later on

Thank you for sharing this with us. What you have done is incredible. Great work!

Really cool! I modified a clamshell style oven last year, and it's been working great, but this design is bit nicer because you dont have to open the top, which lets out a lot of heat.

Where did you source the heating Element? I took mine out of a second oven, but even together they're only about 1200W.

I also wonder if you'd get better leoparding if you tried adding some convection during the cook, like a low speed fan pointed in.

Thanks misterchu.  I believe I got the element from a heating and cooling place online.  It was the highest wattage I could find for 15amp 120.  I googled heating elements and found it that way.  Good suggestion on the fan I did consider that and may try it.  What I'm trying now is messing around with pizza stones to get it a bit closer to the heating element.  The results are coming along tho and am very happy with the oven.
