In reply to the Doomstead Diner forum member requesting info on my solar oven design:
Thank you for your interest and PM. I'll do better than e-mail it to you. I'll provide all the info you need to get the file(s).

The main one has the oven all put together. The others show steps in the building of it. All the measurements are labeled. That is so you can figure out the amount of wood you need from the hardware store. I even provide screw lengths and hardware data. 

Agelbert NOTE:

I wish to point out that many people frown on cardboard.

Kitty that don't know better says :Cardboard for OVEN INSULATION!!? That's designated scratching material, not oven stuff.  ;D

Well, there is good cardboard (non-toxic) and their is bad cardboard. Both of them are cheap. The deal is that cardboard is an excellent insulator. Besides, you DO NOT want glass fiber regular wall insulation next to something you cook.  :P :emthdown: The heat in the oven will never get to cardboard kindling temperature so that is not an issue, even though many people think it is.

The issue with cardboard is what the glue used to make the cardboard is made out of and what the paper the cardboard is made out of is impregnated with. Food grade cardboard is what you want.    It's out there. A Google search will provide you with all the information you need to make the right choice.

This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.. -- Psalm 34:6
