I just did a calc to see what the oven weighs using this table. Mass, Weight, Density or Specific Gravity of Bulk Materials

It came to just under 6 metric tonnes..

I priced some stone pavers to go around the outer shelf of the enclosure.
One place wanted $540, I got some similar but slightly different for $240 from a different outlet.

It sure does pay to shop around.

Some more pics.
Its almost done except for the roof and bulk insulation.

The loose stone will hide the removable damper.

Thumbs up Re: Oven number two..

Congratulations Brickie, it's absolutely beautiful!

You really do have vision. The detailing is so nice - the mantel/lintel above the damper is a special touch!

Ive given it a good fire and got to 600c, this oven burns beautifully.

I have added 500 litres of loose vermiculite over the top and down the sides but I think I will need more to get more cover over the top of the oven.

I need a Gargoyle for the top of the oven in front of the chimney.

In this pic you can see the cold spots where the carbon hasnt burnt off at 600c.

There will be cold spots at the back corners and towards the front, cold as in less then 600c.

The flue is middle front of pic.
