Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

  • Mixing/Applying Mortar Question

    How do most people mix up their mortar? In buckets, wheelbarrows, etc? And after it's mixed, do you work directly from the bucket, or transfer to a board of something?

    When I did my soldier course, I mixed my mortar in a wheelbarrow, and transferred piles of it to a scrap piece if plywood as I worked. I'm about to start my dome, I was wondering if there a better way?

    Thanks!

    I only mixed small portions at a time (pre-mixed home brew) in a small paint pail that gave me about 30 minutes worth of brick laying time. I scooped mortar directly out of the pail to butter just one side of each brick laid.

      Thanks for the reply George! By paint pail, do you mean the 1 gallon cans that you buy paint in?

        No, these are smooth bottomed, smallish 3 or 4 quart plastic buckets that you can pick up at Home Depot for like 2 bucks.
