  • Advise for oven construction.

    Hello all,
    I am going to attempt to build a 42" pompeii oven from the FB plans.
    I have no masonry skills what so ever. Is this possible for me? I have been studying the plans and think that a form for the dome would be a good idea.
    Can anyone give me a suggestion on what to use for the form and how to build one? Any advise for this first timer would be great. Thank you.

      I make my living on my butt and have no real skills with my hands. I was able to make an oven using the string method without forms. I made lots of mistakes and had to redo parts of it (the outer decorative arch took three tries). If I can do it, anyone can.
