Thank you mn8tr.

I pulled the form off of the concrete counter and I'm very pleased with the overall set up so far. The counter will get a matching brick trim and I will finish the concrete counter top by polishing and sealing it.
The oven will get another coat of white SBC w/acrylic sometime later this month.

Much of the finish work has been very slow as I've been using the oven instead.
I added brick trimming to the concrete counter this week and hope to polish and seal the countertop sometime soon.
I also applied a layer of white SBC to the oven's 3 base columns yesterday. The oven will get at least another coat of white SBC, top to bottom.

Looks great George. I like the vertical brick trim elements. You added your additional layers of SBC after reading it's better to apply multiple coats sooner than latter? Smart thing.

Is that a pot of basil on your new side counter? Perfect spot for those pizzas.

Thanks Dino. Actually, about a month passed before I applied my second coat of SBC. The second coat is not completely covered yet. I'll probably do a little more today. As long as I keep the surface free of grime additional layers of SBC will bond properly.
I've done patch work over old, dirty stucco and they seem to hold up for many years.

Yes, that's basil, and I agree it's a perfect spot for it. I'll also be potting some vine on the other side so they can climb and create a screen barrier between the oven and the driveway.

I've been applying additional layers of white SBC to the entire dome, a small section at time, as time permits, each morning before going to work.

I really like the way your oven area turned out. It is functional, blends perfectly, and I know you use it often. Thumbs up!

Thanks Tom. I've been firing up the oven at least once a week, and since our double wall oven in the kitchen's been out of order for some time now I've been cooking in the wfo often. I really enjoy using the wfo.

That is a work of art. Great job of matching the oven design to the existing site.

What type of concrete did you use for the counter top?

I poured two separate tops and used a high yield strength (pre-mix) and it did not work very well at all. When the forms were removed it looked a little like baby swiss cheese which thwarted my plans of staining the counter.
