I made it so anyone could get to my Trimwerks page now and added more pics.

From the day I took down the fence to the day I laid keystone about 1 1/2 months. Been cooking in it since about 2 weeks after that. It's been more than a year since the keystone and I'm still not done with the trim work. Regular life gets in the way but I am still makeing pizza weekly.

I saw it on FB Trimwerks. Nice job, I think your faster than most people Steve. You obviously are a pro. Everyone should not expect to do their oven in 8 days...start to finish. Hell, I built mine almost a year ago and I still don't have the finish coat done. I think there is a tendency for the priority to go to cooking pizza rather than finishing the oven.

I did get the additional perlite I needed to finish it off recently. So I will finish it soon. I am using it in my restaurant and am getting tired of looking at the concrete.

We put the soapstone in afterwards. We make a template, have it cut and then install it.
Wow, that is one handsome floor! Soapstone is so heavy I can't believe you got it to fit so nicely inside after the dome was built. Would love to hear how the floor performs in cooking various itesms (pizza & flatbreads, hearthbread and roasts).

Thanks for the pics!

Thanks! My brother and I do cut and fit a lot of other things together, so this was not too much of a stretch for us, thankfully. We have orders for two more to do now. Four so far. I consider us lucky to be able to do it. The soapstone was a piece of cake to put in really. We just made a template. It is heavy, but is so flippin nice to cool on. It does crack, but if you never take it out, the crack doesn't really matter. It just slips in and looks so beautiful. Here is a link to a better selection of pics. Not all by any means, but you can see them better at least.

Four years and counting, but who's counting? (Oh, I guess I am!)

Incredibly, my oven took 1 year to the day to complete.

Cleared the space for the oven to go on 29/8/09
