You can bend a 3 foot piece of copper into an acceptable ridge form by hand (over a straight edge), then cleat it into place. Here's another video about cleating copper ridge (there's also one at the bottom of the Traditional Roofing page that Milo linked to): https://youtu.be/on7ZjSLb984

Joe has a video on that in the video portion of the site here. Joe can sell you a piece of rolled ridge or you could make it yourself. You fasten copper clips to the roof and then hold the ridge piece on with them so there are no exposed fasteners. Not too difficult.

I'm building a small wood fired oven in my backyward in MA with a slate roof. Ridge is 3 ft :-). I'm thinking to just step flash the ridge and then caulk it with Silicon II. I don't know what maintenance is like on that though and I really don't want water to get in. Not easy to find a small ridge cap. One place I found will sell me one but he is saying to nail through the copper and slate and leave the nail exposed. That doesn't sound right to me. Is it OK? Other options?
