That is superb workmanship! It looks like it has been there for hundreds of years.

What are your plans for the rest of the oven?

Concrete I hope. Heavy rebar in a vermicrete slab won't do much.

It's for a concrete slab...I've got some stonework planned and need the support. Vermiculite will go on top of the slab in the oven footprint per usual application.

Yeah...that would be a move fresh off the turnip truck.

Thanks..that's kind of what I'm going for, or at least make it not look new.

As for your second question...I'm designing as I go, and constantly changing ideas around...so there isn't a good answer right now. I can say it will be all stone, with carved elements and some cast concrete trim on the base. It should make sense as more gets done..I hope.

Thanks. It definitely would have been faster to just do a veneer over block but the base is dry except for the top course, which I turned into a bond beam.

Oven size will probably be between 30"-33"..not sure yet. Over the dome..well, the only thing I know is that it will resemble a small stone house. Design-wise, I'm kind of letting it develop organically because I am using mostly material I have hanging around.

Slab done on Sunday. Going to have a couple things going at once...casting pieces for capping the base, insulating slab, cutting brick and carving some stone.

Some shots of the slab. Drain channel is filled with broken stone and crushed stone to level it out.
