  • London UK Oven Project

    Here are the photos of my London Oven Project. The garden is small but we have managed to squeeze in a 100cm internal diameter oven.. The dome was built by a Brazilian friend of mine (seen in the photos) and then another friend of mine finished the insulating/ rendering with lots of help and advice from the forum. I cured it initally with the wood obtained from the petrol stations (a seasoned soft wood) which I further dried in the Aga. This didn't work: lots of smoke, soot and never enough temperature. I then re-read the forum and realized my mistake: I obtained kiln dried hardwood from a London Pizza restaurants supplier and this evening it got up to temperature within 75 minutes! It burnt off all of the soot and is beautiful!

      Excellent Readie,

      Kilned dried wood in an Aga. You definitely get extra points for trying that. I noticed the white painted brick. Where in London? My wife grew up in Dulwich.
