    Gudday wood duck
    I spent my teenage yrs in the nth west NSW. And like you said if you hunted it you ate it , bronze wing were always fattest after the wheat harvest.
    Have you got yourself a set of the plans yet? Go to the store on the forum and put a free set of plans in you basket .....they will e-mail them to you . They also have free e books on cooking as well.
    You done a bit of reading through the "treasures" they are some awe inspiring builds there. But a good working oven can be built by a mere mortal.

    Good building and post heaps of pics

      Howdy wood duck.
      I think it's not as easy to enable our kids to experience some of these great things we did but hey wood ovens surely have become a part of it for mine......and sounds sounds like it fits in with yours too.

      Anyway welcome
      Cheers

          What part of the country do you hail from WD? I have spent some time and have some heritage in NW Queensland.

            Hi Wild Duck and welcome aboard,

            thanks for the clues about the plans there is not much difference to what I have built over the years accept for the flue and insulation and of course the way you fellas pretty them up.
            Let's face it, the oven's don't have to be a work of art, just do the job and if they work well, all the better. You sound like you are retired and have time to use an oven often, so don't skimp on the insulation, put in heaps and you will get to use the heat from a single firing for several days with an good door fitted.
            Read up on many of the ovens built and pictures taken, until you arrive at your ideal one then enjoy.

            Cheers.

            Neill

                Some of those operations are pretty basic. I had a bit to do with the industry in the border ranges (Qld/NSW) and a couple of narrow scrapes because of the gear.

                It would be good to have access to the offcuts we used to burn. Timber is much more valuable today and Workplace Health and Safety has changed the operations that get any scrutiny. Tough way to make a living though.

                How is your oven building going?
