by the way, sounds like a barrel oven

have you thought about how will you get the barrel out after the bricking is done .... you don't want to damage the new oven!

Well, you light your fire and the barrel burns up... I'm assuming its a wood barrel you're talking about here, right?

Its always a good day to burn barrels in Washington. That mean that the oven is complete. That's how I plan to remove the barrel....in ash!
I will however use the barrel to create an arch opening in the hearth...kinda of a flared Arch entryway that the flue sits in/on. This is the plan any way. I'm still waiting for everything to go seriously wrong but so far so good my foundation is in.
After looking at the beautiful work of others its guys like me that make them look even better.
I tried masonry once before I thought my wife was gonna leave sure..had enough I figured but after 28 years later shes still hanging around. I'm a pretty good lawyer for a cement mason.
I'll try to post a pic so you can all feel better. So that you can all say well at least I did a better job that that poor b****** His wife should have got out while she had a chance.

Amazing, I like the way you are working it into the landscape. I have a question though. The small hole at the bottom of the rock face. Is that some sort of drain for water run off or what?

Yes, that is pretty much the idea. My plan is to bury the oven in earth then plant over the top. I will put perlite mixture to insulate then 6 mill plastic for water proof. ...water is big here the Seattle area. My idea is a hearth standing alone against the sand bank
