Dick and Dusty,
Thanks for the comments. My goal was to get the oven finished, and try to do a better job on the outside than I did on the inside. If the oven doesn't implode, then I consider it a success.
People judge you on what you do, what you say, and mostly, on what they see. As James said, spend more time on what people see. I did what he suggested. I'm not sure I succeeded in my plan, but building an oven for me, was like taking a rafting trip down a river. Pick a course, deal with the rapids and flat spots, and see where you end up.

I applaud those who have the technical skill and patience to build a perfect dome with minimal mortar joints. They are a sight to behold. Once its covered with insulation, no one knows how awesome it is/was. If I was more gifted, it would have turned out better, but I'm not unhappy at all. I've got a WFO in my back yard! I'm diggin' it!

Great result George. I really like the arch treatment and the polished concrete works to a 'T'

Thanks Inishta,
I value your opinion. I'd love to make it back to your world someday. I really enjoyed my limited travels in Turkey. I've got several great (hopefully antique) Kilim rugs to show for my short week in your world. I'd love to reproduce some of the great meals I ate there in my oven.

You mob are sick; that's god-awfull Sir George.
Reminds me of the breasts of beautiful Scandanadians, who've just lobbed in to the Cairns area (Qld, Oz, for those who are guessing, Mission Beach in particular), from the depths of the Northern gloom).
Beautifull construction: just don't touch.... or you're dead, buddy.*

Sir George of Longview,
You bask in a surfeit of accolades.
Do the right thing M'Lord. Cast your vote to the North.
Vote (1) CJim.
*a reference to naked sunbathers. Like GJB's oven. Beautiful construction, wrong colour. Ouch!

Lucky man, Jeff. Never hurts to have a look at those bathing beauties and dream of days gone by, huh?

Sorry I didn't respond to your post on the Clinker Grabber thread. We were way off topic. I decided to let it die there once someone redirected the discussion.

Vote's already cast mate! I think it was Acoma again. I've gotta look back and review. Got my own case of eggtimers diseast here!
Give Jess a hug!
