another steel dome oven

I was going to build a conventional oven, but since this large ball found it's
way onto the property things have changed.
the plan is to split the ball in half and construct a steel inner oven
then weld the ball back together and fill with insulation.
that's the plan anyway:D

Great idea. Please keep us posted.

I bet that loop on top would come in handy moving the thing around. In theory you could make two domes from the same sphere.

we where going to make two ovens out of this,but by using the ball we eliminate
pouring a slab and building a concrete block base.
the plan is to weld the ball on top of a 8" diameter pipe set in concrete

this is the basic idea for the oven so far.
we are thinking about making the ball rotate on the base.:eek:

That is just TOO cool.I'm thinking a slightly larger diameter support would leave it looking less lollypop like, but I really like the idea. Maybe one of the truck rims you make your entry out of, split, and stretched with a length of pipe.

well we cut the ball in two today.
the inside is a little sad looking, but a wire brush will clean it right up:rolleyes:

It doesn't look that bad for a mooring ball, did it come from the Sacramento River?

Bests,

I think it came out of someones yard that lived along the river.
the guy we got it from said it floated into his yard during the floods of 1986.
these are surplus bouys that where converted to well tanks, they are all over
the place around here.
