I'm not sure if it is that big a deal though.

I'm not adverse to changing my mind but I usually have a plan to start with

There won't be anything you can do about it unless you start over at this point, so it is what it is.

PBR does strange things to the thought process. Looking forward with interest on your build.

Poohbair,
I've seen ovens on the internet that have used drums, but I'm concerned about what was previously in the drum, whether the drum is galvanized, the paint, etc. I would not want to be around the fumes coming from burning a fire in this drum. If you're considering going this route, I'd suggest using the drum around which you can create a form from different materials.

On second thought, why don't you just download the Pompeii plans and use them? While I've laid tons of concrete blocks when I was a kid helping my brother build a barn and my father building a garage, that was decades ago. I've never laid a brick before and I'm well on my way now with my oven. There are hundreds of skilled folks on this forum to help you with that.
