lol... there is that to consider... although I find that I'm having more trouble just from picking up and moving the bricks around endlessly than from cutting them. If anything, I'm afraid of tendinitis in the elbow...

My daughter (16) was able to cut bricks with a hammer and chisel. Plenty accurate for the oven chains ( each one tapered, a key in itself) and neither one of us got even 2% of the way toward needing any sort of physical therapy.
This may not be my last wood oven...

Wow, Lars - I'm impressed - it makes me feel guilty that I went out and got the HB wet saw.
But then, I'm trying to work with a 17 year old boy...Big tools are more motivating to him...girls do a better job keeping motivated without the purchase of bigger things. hehehe.
of course, I could be wrong....
