What a beautiful oven in a beautiful yard! Hard to believe you never laid a brick before. Love the brick work, especially the hearth and the enclosure.

Couple of quick questions:

How does your chimney run? from the front then angled back so it comes out on top like that?

How did you insulate? Blankets? Loose in cavity in enclosure? Combination? And how much/thickness?

Beautiful. You have such a good eye for detail. I couldnt anticipate all the curves, shelves, thicknesses, wood storage etc ahead of time. Mine just had to evovle as I went along. Good job. You could actually make these for other people.

Very very beautiful!

It nearly looks as if its floating with the sunlight streaming through the bottom of the stand. And the brick details on the stand and the chimney...Lovely!

thank you very much for the compliments. Mine kindof just evolved also. I drew pictures and it looks a lot like the pictures, but I could not anticipate everything. finding the round chimney bricks set me off in the round direction.
My chimney uses what I learned is called a "squirel tail chimney". the flew comes out the front like all other WFBOs wraps backover the back/top of the oven like a squirel's tail.
Insulation - I used the forno bravo ceramic board uner the floor on top of about 4 inches of peralite concrete. I did not understand some posters here complaining that they were mixing the pearlite 50/50 with motar mix. I think I got to about 10 to 1 or even higher concentrate of pearlite. I put about a 1/2 inch of fire clay mortar on the outside of the oven bricks, then two blankets of the ceramic fiber from Forno bravo which ended up being a good 8inches or about 4-5 layers. Then 3 inches of the 10/1 pearlite concrete mixture and then steel then 2 inches of concrete then the bricks. this picture kind of shows the layers.

Can you see my stars on the side of the oven? I noticed them on old buildings in town. They are used to keep old buildings from colapsing. Since I used all old brick I thought it would look appropriate.
the bricks in the bottom of the oven where the wood is stored is made from bricks made on my fathers home place from his chimney built by my Great-Great Granfather 150 years ago. two of the bricks are signed by the brick mason and the guy who made the bricks on site.
