Default Re: Big Mike's 42" Pompeii

Haven't posted in five forevers, what a slacker! Anyway, lots of progress on my oven. It's been fully operational and cranking out all sorts of good stuff but the finish work has eluded me. I spent weeks stacking and restacking, measuring and remeasuring, then when I got down to it I hurt my back lifting a sack of mortar. I cried uncle and hired someone to do the finish work. I admit it, I waved the white flag. I've come to realize I don't think I could have gotten the results a professional got, or it would have taken so long that it wouldn't be worth the time commitment. I just want to cook amazing food, as soon as it became operational I considered the project done, except my wife kept at me about the huge pile of bricks in the yard.

All that's left is a finish coat of stucco, I can manage that. Meanwhile, get ready for Thanksgiving Turkey!
