oven build with pictures
 
Here is a oven build I found with some interesting ideas. It's a bread oven but some of the ideas are usable. I like the use of arches rather than a four sided foundation.

Ooops, It IS a round oven. I looked at the wood storage arch. It looks like a low angle pizza oven.

It was a really nice build...I looked at it some time ago...I think the oven is more of an oval shape than truly round

Wierd. Looks like a barrel vault oven for quite awhile, then suddenly looks round. Nice job, but why not use fire bricks? Certainly a lot of effort went into the build. Seems funny that they used what are apparently standard bricks. ( I didn't read the captions, so I could be wrong)

Yup, I looked again. It is oval and they are using firebricks. ( George, ya have to read to captions, not just look at the pictures ;) ). However, the base is vermiculite concrete first and then concrete ! Now it sounds more like a high mass oven.
