If you chose a color that matches, the pigment are pretty true to form, even with the light colors.

Default Re: 36" in Seattle

First construction since last August. I finally stuccoed the concrete-block stand under the counter. There are a few spots I could add more stucco, but I may or may not bother (I probably will if a lazy Saturday rolls around). It's the same basic mixture I used for the top: Quikrete SBC, iron oxide color, and I went ahead and used my 50/50 premixed acrylic fortifier as the liquid agent even though water-proofing isn't necessary around the stand. I had the AF anyway, what else was I going to do with it?

Unlike the top of the oven, where I aimed for a pretty smooth surface, the bottom has really heavy trowel scratches in it, admittedly hard to see in the photo.

Cheers!

Um, no, 5'10" - 5'11", shoes depending. I guess you're just saying it just looks like a high hearth.

Actually, I was thinking more about how tall you'd need to be to gather those herbs without climbing on the counter. Also, I can't shake the impression that I'm funny, despite ample evidence to the contrary... :blush:

Kidding aside, it's a very nice oven!

For the sake of the completeness of this thread, here's the new stove-pipe. The support pole is typical 3" ID (1/4" thick, 3.5" OD) steel conduit, 10' long, spray-painted with zinc-galvanizing paint and sunk about 2' into a concrete footing behind the oven. The stove-pipe is pretty unconventional, 7" as opposed to the more common 6" and 8" sizes, that's just what I came by on Craigslist. I put a cast-iron damper in the bottom section too. The whole thing has been rock-solid in some decent winds so I think it could easily accommodate another 2' section on top (the current installation is 11', but I have another 8' of 2' sections to play with...or sell), but I'm not sure I'll get around to making such an alteration, it's pretty tedious to get up that high to work on it...we'll see.

I'm not particularly interested in aesthetic criticisms, thanks 'n all, I'm just maintaining the progress thread for posterity.

And no I haven't fired it up yet. Seattle had over 40 days of no rain (we almost set a record). While the partial burn ban in effect doesn't strictly speaking preclude contained fires, it certainly feels rude to use it...and I'm swamped with work. Hopefully I'll get a free weekend toward the end of the month, calendar permitting.

Cheers!

The oven is easily approached from the raised yard behind it. Notice the hearth is actually at ground height relative to the retaining wall.

And they aren't herbs, they're just ground covers, probably not very tasty.

Ah - I wasn't sure from the picture.

Okay - someone had been talking about planting herbs on their oven - I must have gotten them confused.

I've just read through you entire thread about the drama with your neighbor. I hope the taller pipe helps. Gary
