I added an accent trim of brick ends to spice up the oven as it looked a little too bland.
I'm also thinking of doing a decorative arch over the gentle contour of the lip using the same brickends or thinner brickends from splits which I have plenty of.
The oven still needs final shaping before finishing it with stucco.

Tonight I did some dino bones, corn, and potatoes.

I think the detail and level of finnish also is worthy of consideration, the bricks in the dome specifically are very neat, and i think with a smaller dome thats even more impressive as there is less room for error.

I do like the smaller build tho, perhaps as the plans for mine are revolving round a smaller oven.

nice to see it pumping out tasty treats as its supposed to

Hi,

Since the curing fires a couple of weeks ago I haven't done much of anything to the oven except add decorative trims with bricks in an attempt to spice up the look of the oven. When I'm satisfied with the look I will begin final stuccoing.
Meanwhile, I just had to take a little break from the oven (aside from actually using it to cook) and get back to the honey-do-this list which I have been neglecting the past few weekends....
My wife is otherwise satisfied with my oven project as she's been happy with the end result: FOOD

I, too, like the brickwork! Nice. Glad to see it cooking, too!

Personally, I'm about a week away and getting excited!!

Thanks guys!

I think I'm just about ready to apply final layers of stucco at this point. I think I will use white SBC with acrylic.

I finally got a beautiful hairline crack in the dome and a nice stain on my landing. I've joined the club! ..

Looking good! Are you going to match stucco texture on the walls?

Thanks Tom, I thought of matching the stucco on the wall as our family room fireplace pictured here was also finished with that matching texture (but against a smooth interior wall for contrast).
Therefore, to contrast against the textured wall, I'm thinking perhaps the oven should be finished smooth. I guess I can pretty much go either way...
