I won't until I get it insulated..that's after the framing. Im not as eager to make pizza as I was when I built the first oven, and I am enjoying the build .

We are hosting a beer tasting July 6th, so that will kick things off. IPA is the style this time, and two of my pals brew from grain. Im providing the pizza.

Put some time into carving the granite for the outer arch. Rain and T-storms shut me down before I had a chance to finish it. I'll keep picking away at it as time allows...tomorrow will be material pickup and the start for the framing.

This is the piece I am working with. It is a remnant off a 10ft granite step project I did in MA a couple years ago. This granite is typical of what is used for curbing and parapet walls on bridges....nice even grain (homogeneous)

The arch matches the vent on the inside, and I made the outer line 3/8" larger..just enough to gently flare.

Removing the waste in large pieces first...

The closer you get to your line, the less aggressive you should be. Small relief cuts and easy hammering.

The radius is taking shape.

This is where I'm at because of the rain. A couple more hours should do it.

Thanks fellas! The outer arch has been something that has a lot of thought into it...I'm psyched to be getting to it finally!

That will look fantastic.

Makes my decorative arch that I carved out of sandstone look easy.

Hey thanks Sharkey.

This granite is pretty hard, and has a very high quartz content... but I have worked with certain types of sandstone that were just brutal on chisels and diamond blades. Specifically, one that came out of Montana, which was loaded with iron oxide and was very dense. How is the stone you have?
