Shoot.....don't eliminate Les from next month....I've been waiting for him to "get there". Sure don't want him to miss out on well deserved recognition. I attempted the cut to fit build method, and until Les came along I thought I did great work.......He has elevated "cut to fit" to an art form. That is one patient man.
Hate to say it, but with maburton's completed oven and garden space, it is going to be tough for anyone else to beat him unless they too are completed.

Dave, good point on maburton. That would certainly sway my vote.
Taking nothing away from a breathtaking project, it does make a difference to some of us if it was DIY or a "let me get my checkbook" project when asked to compare with others. I'd like to compare apples with apples.
Anyone know for sure?

I'm pretty sure he said he did it all himself--I know I saw pictures he posted of him in the process of doing it. And he said it was his first time doing masonry. All the more reason to be impressed!

Hey tell you what: we'll just keep on nominating Les each month until he's finished....

That'd work.

Off on my holidays today (Transilvania) and it looks like I am going to miss the vote. I would vote for Carl if thats possible, if not best of luck to everyone.

Frances, rafv - Thanks for the nomination - that's kind of you, especially since I've only just finished it! Going up aginst maburton's oven will be tough though - that's some lovely work.

I know we've laid down our "best of month" contest, but this has to be nominated for best something:
