Hi Crawfish,
That is a pretty spectacular setup you have there and what a setting
I think my oven size will be pretty similar to yours.
Mine is around 700mm wide(28") x 850mm long(34").

Ill be watching with interest to see the final product.
Keep up the good work.
Cheers,John.

1st scary fire.
The dome is not insulated yet.
After 2 hours, the dome is clearing and partway down the sides
The top of the dome is over 1200 degrees
the outside top of the dome brick is over 300 degrees.
I can't wait to try it with insulation.
looking good here
thanks for all the input and advice
michael

Scary fire #2
With the dome cleared, vermicrete below floor was 6 degrees above ambient temp.
Minor cracks as predicted by others on here
Hoping for pizza in a few weeks

Hi Michael,
Are you using the drying procedure suggested on this site? i.e : a small fire a day for 7 days,increasing the temp each time. ?
How are you measuring the temps below and above the oven.Do you have thermocouples in there?
Also i'd like to see what type of cracks i can expect to get without worrying.Do you have any photos?
Thanks mate,
John.

Yes, i started small, took a week to get bigger.
No tc, i am using a laser thermometer.
Vermicrete was 6 degrees above ambient temp, as the dome cleared.
Reading the forum, iit seems like cracks happen
