cantilevered oven door?
a door that opens down and into the oven when you hit it with the peel and closes when you remove the peel.
i saw one in a video on youtube and can't seem to find it again. if you've got one in your oven or even put some thought into making one, i'd love to hear it.
the one in the video was cast, but.i'm thinking insulating castable poured into a welded frame, that folds into the oven, with a recessed area in the 'foyer' (if you will) so the door is flush with the deck when open. if i could figure out how to do anything with google sketchup i'd have a picture. sorry if this is hard to visualize.
