This is a great build. Very inspiring.
Thanks for sharing it with us, especially the detailed pictures. They have helped me visualize what I have to do more than any instructions could.

We're glad that you could find it useful, and happy to feel that we may have somehow contributed back after gleening so much help and inspiration from this wonderful forum for ourselves.

Best wishes,

I have a question:
How did you bend that board to give you a curved landing on the outside of the oven? I bought a 1x4 to do something similar but am having trouble getting the desired result.

We used a 1X4 too, but it was MDF instead of wood. We just bent it and and held it in place with little blocks placed around it.

It's been a while since we last reported on our oven. Happy to report that all is good. The couple of small cracks that happened very early on remain to be the only ones, and they're not wide at all.

We have a large stash of small diameter oak wood to burn through. It works OK - it burns hot, but lacks some flame volume and leaves a lot of ashes. The best wood we have burnt to date is some maple. We were really happy with it, but will try some cherry soon too. After this oak runs out, we want to replenish it with something else.

So far, mostly pizzas. We've had several large parties, the largest being about 35 people. A couple of the kids pitched-in and offered to make pizzas. They did great! With minimal supervision, they were able to help keep the pies coming.

We want to get serious soon with some bread and meat roasting. No excuses now - we have everything we need and just need to do it.

Here's a more updated pic of our oven.



Regards,

The Morgans
