This is truly impressive!

I look forward to following the progress of your oven. Having just completed mine I'm more than impressed with the array of foods we have been able to cook in it. You will be thanking the day you made the decision to build a
WFO.

Finally poured the bench with some help, more concrete than the foundation in the bench 0.46 of a cubic meter.

Heres some of the Reinforcing:



Screeded Concrete:



And polished concrete, kept wet so it wont crack hopefully:



Insulation layer next before the real fun begins.

Hey, thanks for the kinf comments
Heres a few pics of the bench now Ive removed the boxing, a few air bubbles here and there but overall pretty good, on to the Insulation layer for the hearth this weekend - if I get the time.





I chose to stick in an ash pit, I figure if I dont use it I can alway sblock it up but it would be way harder to put one in.

Great result. I think you're going to love the ash pit. Great place to pour out bad beer too.

Bad Beer? Never heard of it!!!

Did you mix up some cement to fill the few holes you have?

Wow. The quality of the finish is excellent. Very, very impressive. I wish I could do that.

For those of us in the middle of winter, don't you love the summer sky. Those nice high angles.
