  • Ash slot size????

    Hi,again!
    Going thru the pics of pompeii ovens I noticed that many builders
    decided not to bother leaving space for an ash slot , or perhaps I
    have been missing it. Can someone tell me if there is a standard
    size and please throw in some measurements.
    Arigato.

    Hello Masako, the ones I have seen were 12" x 2" at the top and taper down to 10" x 2" at the bottom. If you make your form to taper like this then it is much easier to pop it out of the concrete slab once it has hardened.

      Masako,

      A lot of us are not bothering with the slot. The oven is very easy to clean (with or without it).
