My cast iron door on my OLD Jumbo wood stove finally broke. Its a top load stove. I replaced it with a steel door around 1 16in thick, and it has bowed up a bit in the center, I like a top load stove, and dont see any hereabouts. Been thinking of building my own. What thickness do you think I should use.
