I have it closed in, that's about all. I need to build the face because I have to corbel out some to have enough depth for a decent throat and landing. I've faltered a bit there because I don't have a finished idea of what the facing will look like...Mainly where to stop the stone and start the brick and what type of arch to do. I really should have cantilevered the pad instead...At least then I could have made it functional. Spring time is coming.....we're passed the shortest day so it should be here any minute right?

Looks rough still I know. Some of these bricks have been rolling around for 7 or 8 years. Not good enough for a clients fireplace but too good to chuck

I'm so impressed how people build the domes.

Re: The Wood-fired Oven Thread


Take your grinder and roll the edges of the upper third of the arch, it will help a lot. And it is ready for use at this point, fire it up!

I don't quite follow this suggestion, I would roll the bottom outside edge of the arch brick to help smooth the smoke draw, (assuming we are looking at the inner arch.) and the inner bottom edge could also be rolled for a better smoke path. I don't get what would be gained on the upper end of the arch.

Not picking a fight here, just looking to learn something.

We are saying the same thing: Easing the edge, inner and outer of the upper part of the arch.

I'm so impressed how people build the domes.
This one is only 1/3rd dome. the front 2/3rds is a barrel vault. I put the dome n the back to maximise space because it's a corner oven. There are 2- 8' (at the rear) legs on either side that also need material. It would be a large tent to setup at home. If this were customer I wouldn't hesitate

I have about 2 months of indoor or semi indoor work coming uo so I'm not crazy interested in tenting it. In the early spring I usually have had a few months to think up some inspiration.

My biggest issue is 4 stone that I have for quoins. A type of local brownstone that is impossible to find anymore...the quarry has been closed for 75 years or more. Problem is that I have 5 outside corners and it would be strange to have a single quoin if I just went with the 3 prominent corners.

I'll riddle it out but it will take some time

Re: The Wood-fired Oven Thread


I broke down and bought an oven! Not sure how long we will be in our current location, so this made sense. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but from what I've seen, it'll do the job nicely!

Re: The Wood-fired Oven Thread


I should update my thread. I've been puttering away a little at a time a few sq ft of stone or 50 bricks here or there. Need to get another bag of perlite to fiunish insulating then it will be functional at least. I've had a few fires going but only one with any hardwood, i figure there isn;t much sense in acclimatising if there's more perlecrete to pour.

And guys who have built ovens....how about doors...lets see them. I've seen SC's door and I love it, and I've seen iron doors...some I like....any other ideas

Re: The Wood-fired Oven Thread


Poor planning on my part determined my door set up. I had built the inner brickwork way be for I did the shell. The piece or Limestone I wanted to use was only wide enough to create an opening the same as (slightly smaller actually) the inner opening. Hence the 2 piece door.
