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


Hey bytor...i was just looking at your thread again and noticed that i had forgotten to lower the front of my barrel for the opening. It looks like you stayed back 1 header to make the transition between the opening and the barrel. Was this just an easy place to stop or was there a ratio you used?

Thanks

I ended up building one. Maybe 3-4 years ago. I never posted pictures because I haven't really mastered a convenient way to move them from phone to computer.

I don't really do the internet thing on my phone either.

This might not help...but I take my charger cord on my phone and plug it into my laptop and transfer my photos over to the laptop,

Most of the time i have to resize my photos before I can post

Anyway, it's well used and well loved. Not too fancy cause we're not fancy. I had a supply of AAC block left over from a job. I used that for insulation under and on the sides of the oven. Top was cast with perlite and portland mixed over a firebrick barrel vault.

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


I added other stuff a couple years later. No footers anywhere Haha. I just laid on solid 4's. Concrete counters as a trial for my own kitchen. I learned that the bullnose shape was really hard to vibrate well enough. I did square edge in the indoor kitchen. Trying to think what else. The oven itself was way more work than I had imagined. Me and a good friend who is a great bricklayer thought we could finish in 1 day. Took 2 1/2 days.

Yes, mainly for occasions. I would say we fire it up 8-10 times a year.

Never saw an AAC ever up here in mid west. Read some interesting things about them though. I know one time Atlanta had a plant. Are there any places around you they are made ?

Not anymore that I know of. They were opening a plant in mid South Carolina but I think the 2009 thing shut that down. I may be wrong though. I haven't looked into it for quite a few years.

My SC oven was laid on 6 of compacted granite dust and never settled a bit after I last saw it a couple years ago. The south is forgiving!
