Hi Guerito,

Copy away! My oven design is far from original. I "borrowed" just about every element from other projects I've seen here on Forno Bravo.

Have fun building!

Ken, I like the silo idea. Really, when I get to that point with my oven, it may (or may not) become an option. Maybe 1/3's or 1/4's. Still, Your work deserves much respect.

You are too kind. I've seen professional masons at work and I'm definitely not there yet!

I'm pretty pleased with the way it's turning out, definitely better than I expected.

After a few days break I started working on the vent walls. I'm only laying 1 or 2 courses of bricks per day and letting the mortar set so when I tap on the next course it won't mess up the previous.





...and a gratuitous photo of me and my 4 Quality Control Inspectors.

Thanks again for all the kind comments. I really appreciate the encouragement.

After the temp climbed above 35F this morning, I headed out and worked on the vent walls. Since the bricks were cold soaked overnight, I threw them in a bucket of warm water to soak after cutting.



I was also able to cut the first two arch bricks. After cleaning up, I threw a camping tarp over it and turned on a 60watt light bulb inside.
