Finally underway
 
After a couple years, at least, I finally started my oven.

Here are a couple more pictures.

My pool is all curves, so I am trying to kind of recreate the shape in my pizza oven. I hope to find the same tile that we used in the pool for the edge of the table. I cantilevered the table, so I went with rebar spaced 6". That is a pain when you really have no idea what you are doing. It supported itself, even after I removed the forms, so I am very happy.

Looks like a great start. I like the rounded corners on the cantilevered base.

Looking forward to following your post.

The insulating layer is done. I think I'm almost ready for bricks. I used about 5:1 vermiculite to concrete, and thought I created a big mess. It didn't seem like it would harden, but a couple days later it is solid.

What a great start! I don't remember seeing a round hearth cantilevered all around. You have planned well. :)
