Hey, Thanks, but I cannot take credit.

The design has evolved between customer and carpenters, who are boat builders, which might explain the finishing. The lumber is Douglas Fir.

The whole project is a cooperative one. My role has been oven designer/builder.

I will post progress pics soon.

1. The oven has 2 coats of stucco and is ready for the decorative finish. The chimney is in temporarily until the glass can be fitted to the arbour.

2. The 1st test pizza is a success! After a week of curing the oven reaches 800F throughout in 40 minutes, on very little firewood. Even I am surprised at how well it is performing.

3. Pizzaiolo in training, trying to control a wayward dough.

Beautiful arbor and oven set up. So it will be enclosed in glass?

Hey Andrew -- your project is magnificent! I see you live on Saltspring. We're from Victoria and we're finding it very difficult to source the Skagit fire brick. We really want to use them as we find the quality of the couple of samples we have is far superior to others. Can you pass any information on where you found them? Many thanks!
