Sounds great Wayne. Just post here when the time comes and I'll try my best to be there, and bring my wife if its okay. It might be helpful if I can bring my brother in law, a talented mason. An examination of the real thing is worth a million words...

Do you have someone in Manila? Maybe they can pick it up and ship it in LBC boxes, just an idea.

Where are you guys in the Philippines? Since I am in the province Naga City, southern Luzon, I am familiar with you challenges. LBC might be an option. There are many shippers/forwarders in RP which are much cheaper. Find one in the town near you and check prices. They all ship from Manila. I don't know what someone is calling volcanic ash but I would find perlite or vermiculite either in Manila or as I was lucky enough to find a Perlite mine about 20 klm away.

The fire brick I am using is as you described. Even though I don't think they will last forever, they are working fine for now.

We're both on Bohol, an island in the central Visayas.

I used to live not that far from Naga back in the 80`s so I know exactly where you are..

OK,I`ll let you know Lance.. Of course your wife and bro in law are most welcome!
My oven was built by two novices..Me and a general labourer..The main thing I guess is that it works!
Cheers,
Wayne.
PS,I`ll look into LBC.

I am at the base of Mt Isarog, 500 mtrs from Malabsay falls. We are surrounded by Mt Isarog Natl Park. Oh..... by the way, did I mention that we saw four Philippine eagles flying over our property today. Here are some pics, not real close but close enough to identify the unique pattern of the Philippine eagle. The last pic is not mine (unfortunately) but just to show the pattern of the Phil Eagle. Sorry to get off subject

Nice eagle pics. :b:

My wife is reveling in the pesos she was paid for her vote. "Some people they bought slipper" she says, but she already has slippers. She will take the money and vote for who she likes.

Thanks for the invitation Wayne, very nice. Sadly we've got something up. I'll look forward to next time you cook the pizzas if you'll have us. We're interested to see your oven and taste a real pizza pie once more.
