First fire! (built to keep ME warm while I worked around the oven).

I did a concrete watertable around 2 sides to match the countertops that I will soon do. When dry it will match the stucco walls and the mortar in the red brick. Only an inch will be visible; the enclosure will cove the rest.

Cold and damp, but I got a little done on the inner arch. I decided to key it in this time, and also offset it to the right 4 inches to provide an area to the side for embers.

I like how your arch consists of two wedge shapes.

Hey T, I think the offset might be a beneficial change in a small oven creating better access, it will be interesting to hear on how helpful it is. Is this why you re did the arch ?
Great progress
John

Mainly I re-did it because I forgot that I had laid out the oven to HAVE the offset, plus the seal was not good enough without being keyed in. With the offset, the outer and inner arch line up with each other and with the woodbox below.

It has been brought to my attention by a friend that is assisting me that not a single photo indicates a frosty beverage in use, so just to set the record straight the rear (sealed off) compartment (3'x2'x3') of the stand is completely full of empty beer cans. Further, cost calculations do NOT include beverages, which would probably double my current total.

T, Two questions. One, By friend do you mean guy at local store where your purchase this beer? Two, Do empty beer cans have an R value ? Hold on wait lets make it three questions! Three, did you really intend to do an offset or did you come out the next morning and make that decision? OK and one comment, Everything is bigger in texas even pile of empty cans.

Well the plan is very fluid, but the plan at the time I laid the floor was for the offset.

Sure beer cans have a R-value....
