Kiln Door Ideas NEEDED!


I am hoping to hear some good ideas for my kiln rebuilding project, and I think this might be the right place. I am rebuilding a soft brick, propane, catenary arch kiln but my problem is the door design.

 In the past I have had a free standing door frame and I have stacked bricks into the doorway. I've seen bricks mortared together into larger units and stacked into the doorway. Any other good ideas?

 I don't want any brick dust in the kiln!

Thanks & I enjoy the blog and would enjoy the meetings but I live a little too far away to drive for the week night meetings. Thanks again,

That is a really nice swinging door. What experience have others had with stacking a soft brick door and dust?

Emily does have a swinging door. It looks like a really great idea but I think she had some re-design ideas. Talk to her.
