This is the stuff I mean:

Refractory Mortar, Sealant 3200 degree 11 oz. tube - eBay (item 3852622609 end time Jun-24-08 08:03:04 PDT)



You could ask the vendor if the product is right for your application.

Thanks mate! Looks like it's more intended as a sealant than a 'glue' but will check it out...

Talking Re: Sean's Oven

PROGRESS!

So, OK I am not a good concrete guy, that’s ok it will be covered! I did build my slab a bit thick and mixed the vermiculite separate which was poured a few days later. Since I had to burn the entire yard of concrete I didn’t leave 4 inches for vermiculite. I will pour a 3 inch layer on top of the existing slab like I have seen others do. This will give me about 5 inches of vermiculite, which should keep it nice and warm.

What goes on the offshoot to the right? Is it just counter with storage underneath?

Your concrete looks great, not to worry. As you said, it gets covered.

Did you decide to used vermiculite instead of the FB board, or together?

I decided to go with vermiculite instead of FB board because of the shipping costs. I have 4.5 inches of vermiculite with the second pour, shouldn’t that be enough? If not Maybe I will reconsider the FB board. Is it worth the additional money?

I don’t have a definite plan for the right side I was thinking it would be a prep surface.

Only you can determine what something is worth. From what I've read on the post, 4 inches of vermiculite should provide the same insulation value as 2 inches of FB board. Sure, you can never have too much insulation. But at some point you have to draw the line. I think you'll be fine.

Don't take my word, though. I'm not even at that point of my build yet!!

The prep surface area on the side is a great idea. I'm kicking myself now for not building one.

I think vermiculite insulation under the oven is fine - works on mine anyway...

I know other builders have other opinions and maybe it would be even better with FB board, who knows? The fact remains, you can build a really cool oven with great heat retention with only vermiculite for insulation.
