Is that enough of a firebrake between the wood surface?

Can't wait to see your first pizza.
I did a test roll this morning, no problems! Doesn't roll fast due to it's weight, but no hang-ups on the surface. My patio is old mossy cobble stone. I ended up using 300 pound casters.

I am using the 2" FB Board and 1/2" Wonderboard. I am copying other members' plans with regards to keeping my oven stand from burning to the ground.

Eventually this oven will be relocated on a more permanent home, but it could be 10 years down the road.

Anyone know how many bags of stucco mix I will need to do the dome?

Depends on when I get the second coat of stucco (I hope tomorrow). 2 weeks after that, if not 3. I am hoping to cook pizzas for my wife's birthday on the 25th.

Thumbs up Re: My oven Plans

I'm pulling for the long term success with your oven & stand, it looks great. It has gone together pretty quickly, huh?

2 winters later, and my oven is still in great condition. I need to stain my wood on the stand, will this summer.

The only problem I've had is the Mexican taverna tiles I put around the boarder have been cracking apart and falling off. I tried re-glueing them with liquid nails, which seems to hold better than thin-set, but the tiles are starting to flake apart from the surface. They are glued onto cement board, but I am thinking that they are getting wet and not drying out, so they are flaking apart. I think I should have put down some water proofer like you would in a tub or a shower. I guess this summer I will re-tile the surface with something less porous, and try to use some water proofing too.


Maybe I should be covering the oven more too. Kinda in a pain the a** to do, as I use it nearly every other weekend.

I like the mexican tile look but winter's freeze thaw cycle are killer on them.

Great job!
I would suggest porcelain tiles, but you can ask a tile dealer. They sell tiles specifically for outdoors. You may not be able to use a glazed tile without spalling (flaking).

That's a great Oven and brilliant Stand from which I am tempted to go down the wood stand route.

I have an oven which I would say is similar to the Casa2G100 (Approx 500kg including Firebricks etc).

Do you think a wooden stand would be adequate?

Could you provide some additional pictures showing the top (prior to adding your oven) of your stand as I would like to see how to applied the top joints / support?

Thanks
