That's almost looks too good to veneer............

I'm impressed with how clean the entire thing looks, you've obviously thought this through fro some time, and certainly a true artisan..........

From my limited experience with clay bake ovens, I think you may want to add a tad more insulating castable over the top yet........

We had a lull in our schedule, so I had the guys help me out for a bit at home...
We added two layers of 2" ceramic blanket over the whole oven, added four inch block and then two layers of 3.5" roxul over the top.
The area at the front was complicated a little by having to work around the steel harness, but we managed to get it pretty well stuffed full of ceramic and roxul.

Once the insulation was substantially completed, the front face was closed in with a piece of metal.
Time for a beer and a fire.

A little bit of stone started as well...

Well... this is where it's at, and where it may stay for a while... time to pay attention to a few other household 'chores' before winter.

Re: This Could Take A While.... (Yet Another Wood-fired Oven Thread...)


The roof in the picture above is 'temporary'. I had some scrap lumber and metal roofing lying around and wanted to at least keep the elements out of the oven so we could continue using it until we get a chance to finish the exterior. I'm hoping to have a local metal guy fabricate a steel roof made out of 1/4" sheet steel which will be rolled into a curve/wave... with no visible 'rafters' etc... i.e. going for something a little 'lighter' looking.

Like this.... kinda... sorta...

Your work looks too perfect to be real, once I win the 649 I'l have you build one at my house.

Bytor,

Beautiful work as always, and a nice design that I might just use latter this fall. Instead of a steel harness do you think a couple 8" masonry buttresses on the arch sides would be sufficient to hold things together without causing too much mass?

It would be too much mass, except for a commercial bread oven. Personally, I do not think the steel was required, in the same instance, I would have done a 1/2" of fiber reinforced parging and called it good. That said, I like suspenders and a belt.

It seems that this summer/fall has been the season of 'delays' on our jobs. The latest delay did allow for a bit more work to be done at home.

A lot of rainy weather lately.... built a rather hasty shelter to keep the pizza dry one evening. I will definitely try to incorporate a retractable awning of sorts into the final roof design.

Re: This Could Take A While.... (Yet Another Wood-fired Oven Thread...)


Performance report:

As you may recall, 4 1/2" hearth over 6" rigid insulation, 4 1/2" walls and 5 1/2 -6" thick vault with 4" ceramic blanket plus an additional 7" roxul over vault.

Typically takes 75-90 minutes to heat to 7-800* hearth for pizza (Cocktails anyone?) If we plug the door immediately after pizza, we will have around 450* the next morning and typically drops around 100* per day.

If however, we have a good long burn, i.e. another couple of hours after cooking, we still have a 550-600* hearth the next day and oven seems to cool more slowly... around 75-80* per day.

This past weekend, did pizza Saturday eve., a three hour burn in total. Baked bread around noon on Sunday on a 525* hearth, roasted a chicken and veg. Sunday eve., Reheated leftovers on Monday eve, and left a pot of baked beans in for the day on Wednesday.

Success.

Glad to hear it and welcome to the oven builders club! I really like the buttress like base you have going on and the stonework looks great!

It looks great. The performance will get better as it dries out more, although using blankets there isn't that much moisture to start.
