Limpo,

That is a benchmark for recycling, very interesting to watch you build.

That is a lekker looking oven! Just wondering if you observed the door:dome size ratio? The door seems a bit large in proportion to the rest of it. Nice build..

Thank you very much! For the first few weeks after completion I couldn't stop staring at it.

We did indeed make it the magic 63%, and it burns well, fortunately! I'd fire it up a lot more often but 1 i am always a little nervous that today will be the day it collapses (though quite why or how that would happen i am not sure) and 2 it takes a few days off my life every time - I get one of our volunteers to roll them out, then the rest make their own and bring them out to me at the oven, but invariably this smooth and well oiled machine gets stuffed by one of the following:

1 pizzas rolled too thick
2 roller forgets to semolina the sheet we transfer them to the oven with
3 too much topping

... and the upshot is they end up as roadkill or just don't cook as they ought; i have mercifully yet to remove the perfect pizza only to drop it in the sand, though i am sure in time, i will. I could just do it all myself, and have pizza orders on a sheet, but shouldn't have to, really, and I like to think of it as being ''fun'' for the folks to make their own... still...
