And sweet Lucretia, so young and gay
What scandalous doings in the ruins of Pompeii.
Where is Venetia, who loved to chat so?
Could still she be drinking in her stinking pink palazzo?
Where is the life that late I led?
Where is it now? Totally dead!

No, Just kidding, a great job

And you gave me crap about TCU, you are not a horned frog are you?

We did an island in our patio for a place in grill and I stuccoed that with a Sherman Williams product and the color unexpectedly had a pinkish look. Needless to say we painted right over it. I'm thinking of doing stone over it now. Let's see how my stone work goes on the WFO first.
What are you cooking this weekend?

Hey George, nice job, it looks great - congratulations!
Any plans for the stand?

Thanks Sarah,
Eventually, I will tie it all into a counter/bar/BBQ. Tile on the floor for sure. Possibly polished concrete counters, veneered stone on the sides is my thinking at this point.

RC,

George,

You could say it was fuchsia or a "manly" terra cotta. Not matter what you call it looks great. I love the detail you did on the archway.

I'm planning my build for this spring. One thing I realized is that you want the oven to look good but when it's all said and done you don't see much of the actual "dome" just the entrance and the back of the oven. I need to spend more time on how the outside will look which I can tell you did.

You did a fabulous job!!!!
Dick

Congradulations George! Looks fantastic. Way to stick with it. I have noticed that construction on my oven has slowed way down since I started cooking in it. You're an inspiration.
