All finished.
I gave the bricks a light acid wash and then hit them with the pressure washer, 150 years of grime gone and what a difference it makes, the bricks almost glow now.

Here are before and after shots of the cleaning, plus some general pics of the fireplace, oven and yard.

And to think it all started with just wanting a pizza.

Just try an inconspicuous part first, I used the rotary headed lance as it has more cleaning power.

Today I made a medieval Inn sign to hang over the medieval sized fire place.
I used my medieval plasma cutter, medieval MIG welder and medieval gas forge..

The first of the curing fires.

I envisage a spit being incorporated into this fireplace, a large spit that will hold a sheep or small pig.

That is a might fine looking piece of work. I agree, it would look good with a pig roasting on a spit over the flames!

Gudday Al
Yes it would be great to build the ultimate spit in there ( and I'm sure you will)
I can just imagine sitting me bum on those warm bricks in front of the oven and toasting me back to the fire, and a nice cold beer as well.
Great design you really thought about it
