  • conquering the world one wood oven at a time

    Hi there, long time lurker, found this site after [sob!] I built my first oven 4 years ago ... it had lots of problems ... too small...no insulation .. too low on the ground.. [it's been demoted to a smoker]. but it got me hooked and I started scouring the property [300 acres in the Opeongo Mountains of Ontario ] for more rocks to build the mark II.
    It took me 2 years of prying through rock piles and searching my brick piles [I am a ceramic artist , kiln and forge maker, kilns for me and forges for my wife WWW.timstorey.ca] .
    I started the oven on July 1st and we were cooking by Canadian thanksgiving {early Oct.]. It's a 36'' pompeii built using plans from the site and a brick setting tool from a australian book.
    Still no roof , plans are for a curved steel roof with a big overhang [for the baker] at the front .. maybe this fall.
    Still no proper door, just some 2x8's with ceramic fiber lashed to the hot side [ the door started on fire last month ] , but as the French say .. '' it's the temporary , that lasts ''

    let's get some pics up on deck for all to see. Your second attempt should outdo your first and since being a member of this forum, getting better by the week.


    If you don't succeed the first time, try again and again until you get it right!

      Here are photos of the mark I oven/grill [ my first ever stone masonry project] and the mark II , still unfinished tarp for a roof] but cooking for 20 months.
      I've also enclosed pictures of the brick radius tool [ which helped out this newbie dome builder] and the soft clay supports for the final dome close .
