Good luck on yours,
Tony.
Tony, I can't believe your wife called your oven STUPID! that's very harsh! Hope she eventually enjoys it when it starts cooking yummy food.

Possibly one good thing about a broken washing machine is if it has a stainless steel drum- you can make a great brazier out of it.

all the best with your oven!
cheers,
Pete

cheers

Hi Matt,
I see your steel arch- nicely bent! Are you thinking that now the bricks/mortar are set, you could remove the steel? have you got another steel arch at the oven end of the vent too?
Is there a chimney, or will your door= the chimney?
Nifty steel base too!

cheers,
Pete

I'm actually becoming a little bit obsessed with the whole pizza oven thing. I wake up in the middle of the night counting bricks and measuring angles, radii, volumes and masses. Is there anyone else here obsessed with wood fired ovens? Is there an easy cure?

I'm looking at the end goal: I like pizza. “No oven: no pizza!” That will keep me going.

God-willing, I’ll start the base tomorrow.

Cheers,
Pete.
Hi Pete, my wife was also worried about me starting another project before finishing the last one.
I showed her, my oven is almost finished and it's only taken me 12mths.

Hi Tony, just wait till it's finished and she'll be bragging to her friends about how great it is.

Good luck with your build guys.
