Thanks Coloradoredusa, I have been busy finishing the outdoor kitchen area and now I am going to start on the concrete stone for the oven. I wanted to keep the brick free of any contact and to have something the stone could butt up to at the opening of the oven so I made some concrete pieces to go in front. Here are the photos of what I did.

Thanks Gary and Mike,

I'm going to try and stain the concrete arch pieces to better match the concrete stone that I will be installing on the oven. So I'm going to a couple of stores tomorrow to find out what colors there are out there and how to apply it.

It has been some time since my last post. I ended up using an acid stain for the arch pieces. I tried many different stains but what I liked the best was the way the acid stain looked. With the acid stain I tried different colors and strengths to narrow down on which one to use.

I finally stained the pieces and let them sit for a while before I installed them, just to make sure the color remained. Now they are cemented in place and the oven is ready for the stone.

It may be a while before I finish. I have too many projects that need attention!

Brian the cement arch looks great! With the reveal you left on the outer arch, you could have an outer door if you wanted one.

Thanks dvm. I do plan on having two doors, an inner and an outer door with a plug for the flue in my attempt to keep in the heat. It may seem to be a little overkill but why stop now. When I finish the stone I will start working on the doors (hopefully I'll finish sometime next year).

Thanks again,
Brian

I finally have started installing the faux stone on the oven. It will go all around the housing. When I'm finished with that then I will work on the door.

Your space has to be one of the nicest I have seen. The amount of work you have put in, and the level of skill.......wow.


(I think I will have to delete all the pictures of my oven and redirect to your build)
