After the concrete had gone off a while I marked a few reference points into it.
Centre both ways and 350mm (1 1/2 bricks) in from the edges.

I have to aim for a slot already cut into the roofing from the last oven so need to be fairly accurate.

Moving along nicely, if the rest of your oven looks half as good as your stand it'll be something you can really be proud of.

I had this arvo off so I played and done some more to the oven.
Some of the calcium silicate is recycled from the old oven and is 40mm thick.
I added 50mm pavers in between the CS and the fire brick floor tiles for thermal mass.

More pics of the oven floor and the walls coming to height.
As you can see I went for the tight ever ever so tight joints, I used a propriety mix for tight joints.
I figured its not the fire bricks that fail in ovens but the joints so the tighter the better.

Again some of the floor tiles are recycled from the old oven.
Just as a matter of interest, the floor area of the new oven is twice as big as the old one.

Insulating bricks to form a thermal break between the inner and outer skins of the oven.
