Newbie homemade oven project...
 
... after searching and browsing thru this forum, I realize that I really suck at mortar work, and have no idea what I am doing, but I am moving forward anyways!! I didn't even really start with a plan, just an idea. I have 0 experience with carpentry, and even less with brick / mortar work.

temporarily turn off images in your user control panel and then you'll be able to see the edit button to cut the images out or relink to smaller ones.

So that is where I am at as of yesterday. Hoping to get my fire bricks set this weekend after go fishing. I am thinking of using Thinset so that I can get the fire bricks all as flat and level as possible... The base is full of sand, and then has a layer of wine bottles and Perlite, and then I mixed a batch of Mortar with a bunch of Perlite mixed into it and put it over the top. The perimiter of the base has 240lbs of concrete and 160lbs of mortar poured down into the holes, along with alot of empty PBR cans :) to fill the empty holes.

Planning on a cob style oven on top with no chimney.

Beats me. Most of the cob ovens that I looked at had them for insulation? I really have no idea what I am doing. I just want to cook pizza :)
