Applied 320 pounds of stucco this weekend (brown coat)... sigh... have about the same to go before color coat. But is is good exercise! The oven's efficiency continues to improve; The oven is 315 degrees tonight - last fire was Halloween (Pizza 10/31, Bread 11/1 and again 11/3). It was about 80 degrees here today - lots of misting to keep the stucco curing - not drying.

Mild weather does allow WFO progress! I placed a stucco scratch coat on the metal framed surround for the oven chimney. On rest of the block structure needing stucco, I went strait to brown coat. Here are some photos of the oven enclosure ready for color.

Notice the tortoise den on the back side of the oven stand.

I plant to bolt wooden back rests to the Pony wall seating.

After troweling on the brown coat stucco and bringing some texture to the surface with rubber float:

I was ready for an easier way to apply the color coat.

I decided to spray on the color coat; managed to get all 350 sq feet applied! I used 3) 90 pound bags of grey base stucco, pigment, and a sprayer designed to apply drywall texture. I will post photos of finished stucco after some clean-up.

Looking good dvm!

I have completely stalled out on the stucco application for my oven. The lath and paper are on, I just have a lot of inertia with taking on the stucco application. Not sure why!

anyway, good on you for pushing forward - and the results look great.

Had a great WFO weekend. My oldest was home from college and wanted to bake. I modified my basic pizza dough to a garlic-herb-parmesan bread and my son found a recipe for chocolate, cinnamon bread; made a mixer full (2.5 kilos) of each.

I did a bit of mortar mixing too. Placing firebrick in the fireplace adjacent to the oven. First attempt was to create and install a "panel" of splits tilted off the back wall - that was a fail. Second attempt is buttering and placing bricks one at a time - using a plywood profile to set the angle - so far so good. It does take a bit of contortion to get in there.

Hi DvM,

Looking at the photo of you and your son, I see your past and his future. A truly spitting image. It looks as you two really enjoy each others company.

Yes the poor guy does look much like me - and we have a younger (13 year old) copy too. We are having a good time with the oven!

Did something new (for me) with the oven today.
I fired it yesterday morning with almond wood (as usual). 42" FB Pompeii Oven with 19" dome, and adjacent fireplace, in the O.C.-2013-01-05-08.57.23.jpgAfter some pizza for lunch I removed all of the coals to an air tight ash bin and left the door off for a few hours until the oven reached 475 degrees. I then baked two dozen 200 gram garlic and herb roles last night. 42" FB Pompeii Oven with 19" dome, and adjacent fireplace, in the O.C.-2013-01-05-22.16.26.jpgAfter baking I closed the oven up tight.42" FB Pompeii Oven with 19" dome, and adjacent fireplace, in the O.C.-2013-01-05-22.53.44.jpg
At noon today I put the (now cold) wood coals along with a few splinters of pine and a 2 inch Almond branch into the (350 degree) oven. With some encouragement from my torch, it ignited and began to produce lots of smoke.
I put chicken on a rack over an aluminum pan and placed the door ajar. When the temp probe in the meat read 180 degrees I pulled it out - the result was great! Good smokey flavor, Attractive browned skin and the meat remained moist.42" FB Pompeii Oven with 19" dome, and adjacent fireplace, in the O.C.-2013-01-06-16.24.57.jpg
WFOs are not just for Pizza and bread any more!
