Very nice looking finished oven. Every single detail in the oven is a signature of the skilled builder.
Love it.

It's all yours next time. I would recommend buying some carbide chisels though, the base stone took a good amount of shaping to make them usable!

Stonecutter, is the wood (you used for the finishing) a special kind of wood? I mean I used to think of wood as a material that does not like weather changes and may wear out early contrary to your attractive stone finishing that is supposed to stay brilliant for decades.

What do you mean by special? It's not pressure treated if that's what you mean. It did stain all of the exposed framing rafters on the gable ends and the rafter tails) and all the other wood is cedar. It will last a long while with a little care.....nothing is maintenance free, even the stone. I'm confident the oven will be torn down before it falls down.

I'll probably be the one that does it too.

So, you all staying put for awhile? Even if you do, I'm pretty sure there's some sort of law on the books down there prohibiting the demolition of such a work of art like that.

Nothing's set in stone...

Im only half kidding about tearing it down. This one was never suppose to be permanent and it just evolved into what you see now. I would not have built it @33" but rather around 42 or more. It's cool though, it's good to try different ovens out.

I'm actually building another oven for myself soon...a Neapolitan mobile one. It's been in the planning stage for about a year, but I need to finish my patio and cabinet before I start that project. Plus, I've got another fixed oven to build at a friends house too (40") so I wouldn't have time to tear my oven down and rebuild even if I was serious.

What can withstand consecutive summers and winters or even rough users for quite many decades without even changing its color more than a stone? Regardless of the wood involved in the finishing, I believe that this oven could keep its perfect shape for decades, though I'm still not convinced why stonecutter involved wood in the finishing, and when he was talking about tearing down, he was behaving modestly, who wood reconstruct a strong running perfect looking classic Rolls Royce? Hope you live to see it tearing

You ain't fooling me, you built this oven because you wanted to play with the Gothic arch. I only built mine because I wanted to build something utilizing the Guastavino vaulting method so I understand exactly.

The original plan was a round footprint for the stone base and a cob oven. Once I started building with the stone I had, I realized that shaping them for a round base would take as much time as building a larger square base. And as for the vault, you are sort of right....I did want to do something different. But what I intended to do, was a cross ( groin ) vault, possibly a ribbed cross vault. I needed to simplify the vault for the sake of time, because I was involved in a huge commercial project at the time.

I have been given creative license for the oven at my friends home. I am planning it out now, and I'm going to built a ribbed cross vault for his base. It'll probably make me jealous! This one won't have an enclosure either, I'm going to do some kind of tile mosaic over the dome.

I would love to do a Guastavino vault someday too, I just need to order the clay tile...I did find a company online that makes them. I'll probably build a small gazebo so I can do the roof with the vault.
