Is the word "massive" acceptable for this project ?

The tile work makes a large transformation in the appearance. I am anxious to see the final outcome of your hard work.

Wow! You REALLY get a sense of just how massive this oven is from those pics of you standing next to it. Everything aspect to this point is amazing.

I'm really looking forward to hearing how this puppy performs, Wish I could be there for your first "scary" fire, it will truly be an inferno.

Oh Happy Day...first small firing late Sunday PM, fired all day Monday and again this morning, Tuesday.
Dealing with small amounts of smoke spilling around outer arch when fire down to smoldering (making lots of smoke) found chimney cleanout door not fitted well, taped it shut..helped some. Also hung a "curtain" of cardboard on front arch, extending it down 3 inches...helped lots.
I may try inserting some sheet metal, on each side, between the 2 arches, choking the opening narrower, towards the center. My thoughts are, that I may have diluted the suction of the flue by flaring out too wide at the mouth.
Otherwise, so far, so good. I don't have the thermocouples hooked up, so no temps to report....too many other items to attend to and we prepare to open next week.
