Default Re: 42" Brick Oven & Grill in Los Angeles.

Here is some work from the past weekend. Removing the form was pretty easy using just a drill bit, a large one. Made a few holes and broke the bottom half and it was out. The hardest part was working on the inside, its not fun... Id have to admit my oven build is no where near what some of you guys have built, definitely not the cleanest, but im content with it.

Spent some time the other day cleaning up the re purposed/vintage bricks i picked up for free. They have so much character. I had to remove the mortar and sand, using a hammer, Spackle and wire brush. You can see all the mortar and sand ive removed.

Those are nice! Are they antique? I used handmade, antique reclaimed brick for the pointed vault on my current build. Here is a pic..

They are very irregular, no two are alike in length,width and thickness. Even the hardness varied brick to brick. It was almost like doing stonework..almost.

All the bricks i have are antique. Most vary in size but im not sure if they are hand made.


These bricks were removed from a fireplace built in the 40's.



These bricks are Simon Bricks, they were made in 1903. They were removed from a house 25 years ago and it was originally off a house built in 1905.




There are a mixture of bricks here, some are the simons, some on the left are unknown and some are the ones i cleaned up.

Are there thumb and finger print impressions in a few of them?

Not in mine, but not all handmades have marks like that. It's a pretty good bet they are handmade if none of them have the same dimensions. It would be cool to see impressions in the brick, long lost artisans.......
