Default Re: oven dimensions

For my first oven I built it with a flue in the centre at the top of the dome. t would draw beautifully and had the advantage of taking up less space (with no flue entry and also no need for a flue pipe. I made some caps,one with a 50 mm hole to choke the oven and reduce heat loss and another plug to fit into this hole to totally shut the oven. More heat is lost up the flue with this system and a greater heat loss occurs from around the top of the dome which you can't totally insulate.

We visited Pompeii in October, what a fascinating place! Among other very interesting things there were wood ovens. I was surprised to find that they were not all of the front flue design. There were a couple there that had central flues. These were generally smaller in size, probably private homes rather than commercial premises.
The first pic is from the bakers shop. The third one has a central flue and the last one I think was just a cupboard.

I was so enthralled looking at the beautiful arch in the last pic that the face scared the bejabous out of me....

It was prolly a closet to keep your skeletons in?
