Sort of, but my main hobby is bricklaying so I love it.

I must admit Im itching to cook with a WFO again, Im missing it.

Brikie,

That looks awesome. I would love to get some bluestone like that where I live. Oh well, lick and stick rock it is for me!

Had another go at cutting the bluestone today and will have more than enough to finish the base off tomorrow.

Just a quick safety note.
I have a full face helmet that draws air in and blows it down your face after filtering it twice down to 2 micron.

Similar to this one (just an older version)


But after a few hours on a wet saw I could feel my nose getting crusty from the dust, a paper mask just wont do.

Brickie,
Try slapping some product on the stand like Bondcrete or Silasec to prevent rising damp, before you cast the slab. You won't be able to do anything about it once that slab is down.

Im putting corrugated tin inside the top as there a few voids that cant be over come, I think the tin will stop any moisture.

You can see Ive left piers to support the corry, Ive used some old hard bags of cement that got wet as filler next to the old oven base.

Here is the look Im aiming for.
Ive tried to keep with the Fibonacci sequence or Golden Mean where possible, which is 63%.

Some rough set outs of the oven and opening.
Im thinking of putting insulated half fire bricks at the front for a thermal break.
The cavity will be ceramic blanket and loose vermiculite, and the whole oven covered in loose vermiculite.
