true, however i dont really mind the look. i think it looks quite good. and realistically, no one else will ever know it's not technically supposed to be there! once its cleaned up should look ok

I agree. I didn't mean to imply otherwise. Once you get the exterior all finished up everything will blend in well.

dont worry i didn't think you were implying anything! i like the candid nature of this forum anyway!

i'm still stoked at my first oven nearing completion.

learnt heaps and when i do the next one i'll have learnt from previous mistakes. in the end i'll have a reasonable barrel oven and depending on how easy it is to manage heat will determine whether i do this or a pompeii next time. although, i think i'd do a pompeii anyway to learn that one

That's a great looking oven Alex. The niches on either side of the arch are perfect for placing your beer where it won't get knocked over...and you have even designed both left & right handed beer holders!

Hey guys,

curing fires - i have been lighting small fires for the last couple of weeks every day or two...building them up. im ready to crank it now...going to give it a big firing this saturday night and see how it goes...but its been a week before the first curing fire...then 2 weeks worth of curing fires....should be ok. safe than sorry!

haha thanks re: the beer holders. its actually the reason i left it there....to put stuff on. like the infrared thermometer...gas lighter...beer...utensils...beer...rum...beer....

400 degrees isnt enough to melt steel

im using a steel angle at the entry to my oven (where the dome tunnels down) and it going fine with oven 70 firings so far

cheers

As many Alan Scott-designed ovens have been built and remain operational, if lintel expansion was a problem, it surely would have been identified and rectified by now.

If done as designed, it is a loose lintel and should not cause an issue.
