        Do you want each element to see 220V?
        I'll give you paralell because it's easier to add elements at any time.
        However you go it's like this-- Thermostat or Temperature controller
        is wired 110V and trips a relay that isolates
        the 220V. The elements are wired white
        and black to relay.White on one end and
        black on the other.The neutral isn't used on
        heating elements.The controller can get its
        power from the neutral and one of the 220V
        lines, either black or white.But not both!
        For paralell you simply connect another
        element to the first like jump starting a car.
        White to white and black to black.
        Wayne when I get a free second I'll draw it and email it to you.

            would Two elements be enough for an oven that big?

              Noob,
              I built an oven a month or so back that is 3 by 4 by by 5 inside and
              it's got 2 - 220 volt element's that are 3500 watt's each. The pre heat
              take's a bit but I wanted to keep it under 30 amp. It has an industrial
              temp control that would cost a mint except a buddy at work wired it up
              with used part we had laying around.
              Hope this help's,

                What did you use to insulate the walls? I need to build a bigger oven so I can do Harley Frames since that is where the big $$$ are down here in Fl

                  I just used regular house insulation and removed the backing cover off of it.
