Mike,
Excellent workmanship! Everything looks very symmetrical. I wish I had used a tool like yours to hold the bricks in place, it would have saved alot of frustration. Keep up the great work. Look forward to following as you finish up.

Mark

Don't know who makes it. I got it from my refractory supplier - thought it was easier than pouring the vermiculite layer - refer my picasa album link

Ready to fire at last.

I was thinking about placing the fire in an old baking tray to slide it around the oven for even heat transfer.

Anybody with any thoughts ??

Great job Mike. Why do you want to put the fire in a tray? Afraid of getting it dirty? I suppose the tray will work, but may hinder the dry out of the floor slightly. Dam good brickwork though.

Another Aussie new to the site from Wagga Wagga, NSW.
That oven looks awesome. Nice work.
I've just started a roughie, lets call it a practice run.
So much info, so little time. I'll try & get a couple of pix up soon.
Keep up the good work.
Cheers

I have now fired the oven several times Long & slow - Internal brick temp ranging from around 300 - 500 F - Moisture still coming out of the dome.

Fitted the insulation last weekend 1 x layer of 2" & 1 x layer of 1".

Not sure how much vermiculite & fondu I will use - Got 2 x 6kg bags of vermiculite ??? Anyway will attempt to complete the insulation & Arch face brick next weekend.

Soon it may look like my drawing

Its now time for a door & some tools

I should finish these items in about another week. I'm using stainless steel as it has a lower heat conduction than carbon steel and with the 1" of insulation between the plates - hopefully will be o.k
