Default Re: My 3-Legged Dome

My stucco and finish (antique finish) are not quite finished yet but I'm moving on to the next phase of the build by forming a small concrete counter, mounted against the block wall.
I'm using the form's base as a temporary counter to see if the shape and area are practical before I go ahead with it.
Also, the counter on the felt side is perfect as I am left handed.

The white stucco looks great.

Thanks lwood, but the oven looks too 'clean' against the house.
I plan on applying a finish to make it look aged and used, but not abused...

Have you considered making the table the exact height of the hearth ? Then extend it diagonally to the edge of the hearth, tangent to the oven opening (leave a 1 inch gap as a thermal break). This cantelevered edge could even be supported by the oven structural slab.

This will give you more counter space and, more importantly, you can then slide hot pots directly to and from the oven from the table without lifting them.

Thanks, WCD.

Neil..... I know you suggest this set up to me before as you have yours set up that way and it's a very practical set up. I originally did not want to crowd that area with a permanent counter space but after doing several cooking sessions with a small folding table next to the oven I decided I needed something permanent, but very small and not too high. So far that rounded 'countertop' is working out just fine without taking much space so I think I'm going with that design. The height of the counter is a minor inconvenience but I can live with that.

With a little more reinforcement I'll be ready to pour the counter and support in one single pour. It's a small counter space, but sufficient enough for me and I believe it would compliment the oven well with matching brick trim.

I poured the counter yesterday. I hope it holds and stays anchored against the block wall when I remove the form in a few days.

Looks good, it should be fine with the support you built. That looks like pretty wet concrete though. Be sure and use a good sealer on it. I recommend a sodium silicate if you can find it in small quantities. And do not pay a lot for it, there are some scams out there selling it as a miracle cure under the name liquid glass. It sells for around 100 bucks for a 55gl drum.

Thanks Tom. Although the concrete 'looked' right while I was hand mixing it I think I over hydrated it because it was a warm day yesterday.
I will look for a good sealer after I polish the surface.
