conquering the world one wood oven at a time
 
Hi there, long time lurker, found this site after [sob!] I built my first oven 4 years ago ... it had lots of problems ... too small...no insulation .. too low on the ground.. [it's been demoted to a smoker]. but it got me hooked and I started scouring the property [300 acres in the Opeongo Mountains of Ontario ] for more rocks to build the mark II.
It took me 2 years of prying through rock piles and searching my brick piles [I am a ceramic artist , kiln and forge maker, kilns for me and forges for my wife WWW.timstorey.ca] .
I started the oven on July 1st and we were cooking by Canadian thanksgiving {early Oct.]. It's a 36'' pompeii built using plans from the site and a brick setting tool from a australian book.
Still no roof , plans are for a curved steel roof with a big overhang [for the baker] at the front .. maybe this fall.
Still no proper door, just some 2x8's with ceramic fiber lashed to the hot side [ the door started on fire last month ] , but as the French say .. '' it's the temporary , that lasts ''

let's get some pics up on deck for all to see. Your second attempt should outdo your first and since being a member of this forum, getting better by the week.

Cheers.

Here are photos of the mark I oven/grill [ my first ever stone masonry project] and the mark II , still unfinished tarp for a roof] but cooking for 20 months.
I've also enclosed pictures of the brick radius tool [ which helped out this newbie dome builder] and the soft clay supports for the final dome close .
