A beauty, what are your plans for the roof? I say one bigass piece of ledge! That was my plan. Kind of a tribute to a Dolman. In the end I couldn't swing it and poured it.

I had six fires going for my daughters B-day party this weekend, and didn't cook a single pizza. I was drying out the one oven, I cooked all the vegetables in my oven and the grills cranked out beef and chicken fajitas.

2 ovens, 2 grills, fire pit and fireplace.

Same for me, it lived in a friends basement in MN for 20 years and they were going to scrap it so I took it.

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


If i play my cards right I'll be able to add myself to this list. I'm interested in casting with refractory because I'm more used to forming than bricking. It seems this isn't as durable?

I helped install a precast kit that came in 5 pieces. Its still going strong 7 years later but its indoors, actually in the kitchen.

Would I just buy a refractory cement and mix my own dense low water content mix or would I buy a bag of premixed refractory concrete?

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


good question. When I was in school we made a throat for a rumford fireplace, unfortunately I wasn't involved directly in that aspect because I was part of the team building the firebox. From what i remember tho, they guys who did cast the throat made a mixture of castable refractory and sand, regular masonry sand if i remember correctly. i do not remember the proportions tho. I bet if I googled castable refractory i'd find it tho.

For what it's worth, if it were me i'd cast it in a few peices so it has some joints to expand/contract

here's a good place to start

I haven't done a cast one, but I would definitely pre-engineer the cracks. I would make the walls in 3 sections plus a separate dome and entry. All joins would be lap joints left loose (not mortared). Castable refractory is expensive, though.

Agreed about the pre-engineered cracks. I have never seen a cast dome without them and most of the ones I saw had lap joints.

Tscar, you had posted a recipe for a homemade refractory mortar in the past why couldn't that be used? I don't remember exactly what it was.

It only contained fine aggregate. If you mixed some appropriately sized firebrick grog with it, it would probably work just fine.

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


Seems to be a trend over the past few years... a bit of down time at this time of year between big jobs.

Expanded our walkway/patio to meet the oven, ripped off the temporary roof I had installed, built up a bit of block to accommodate the new roof plan, milled up some small 'timber' rafters... and on it goes...

The rafters look great, as does the rest of the build. I see you also invested in a slotted round peel...very nice!

No plans to... want to leave it all 'airy' for the drying of the 'fuel'.

Managed to get even more insulation over the top of the oven...
If memory serves, I have 2 layers of 2" ceramic, and 4 layers of 3.5" Roxul.
