Hey Brooky Tom - Welcome back. Looking forward to seeing your pics. Just had a daughters wedding and those occasions are very special. I hope you are enjoying your oven. I reckon building the oven was one of the best things I have done for a long time.

Greenman - Interesting combo here. My youngest son has a girlfriend who is now in Bundy - and I remember your prawns photo. I am a prawn fanatic and best I've tasted ever were in Karumba - so creamy. Anyway for wedding sourced an outlet in Brisbane who sold me bananas quick frozen on the boats in the gulf and I cooked them up for the wedding - 20kg. Just tasted great. Great price too if anyone in Brisbane wants to try this way of enjoying prawns if you can't access the fresh green prawns that Greenman obviously does.

From me as well it is great to see you back. You sons wedding, so I went back through the thread page 2 and the photos of the pond. Wow what a place for a wedding. I suppose us oven mob forgot about the original purpose of the oven was as part of that plan!
That's indeed a beautiful area of land and a lot more work than just an oven has gone into it.
The forum has always demanded oven pics, first pizza, pics etc.
But we have a really truly wedding here.
Could we ask. No demands of course Some wedding Pics , please.
If the answers no ... That's cool.
Regards dave

Dave, No problem with posting the photos. Just getting them close to the laptop for posting is my time issue. Will do. BTW in terms of preparing pizza bases (and toppings maybe) what do the forum think are some good sites?

Go back to the forno "store" and chuck a free Cook book on pizza cooking and another on WFO cooking in the basket.
There also a section in the forum on Pizza.
I like to keep things simple ... So its 500 gm flour 325 of water,yeast salt.
It's imprinted , stick to those basics and you can always play with the other things
Regards dave

Photos attached show 1_ the oven level getting close to top; 2_ People have spoken about how the firebricks and the brick saws wear out the fingers; so true; I resorted to electrical tape mainly which worked better than band-aids (better at resisting the water of the brick saw and generally) but had to use the tape as fingers lost skin layers: 3_ Inner arch done; 4_ a look inside - not as neat as many but I was happy with result.

Next photos show 1_ keystones ground out and ready (quite large but that's how it turned out - worked well); 2_ Roof of the oven - note how close to the roof of my structure, hence the need to keep the rising height under control; we actually shifted a piece of the roof for the oven construction and slid it back after the final render; 3_ the hole at the top; 4- the keystones from the inside before the final mortar and finish. Again nowhere neat as others but it has worked out OK

Next lot - 1_We lit a small fire after the final seal, still hadn't done the outer insulation and render; 2_ the smoke out of the inner arch gave me some idea as to how encompassing the chimney entrance way had to be in the outer arch construction; 3_built the chimney base bricks and this shows the heat break below (actually done as a 50 mm wide SS channel: also did up the sides of the arch);4_another view of the chimney base and outer arch which I set back 50mm from the inner arch (the reveal)

And then 1_ shows the outer arch and oven; 2-as I started to cover the oven with CB blanket: I used 25mm thick blanket and used 2 to 3 layers depending on the area (more around the neck of the oven/arch interface). Surprisingly I didn't need to use a lot of the mounting screws I'd put in- the blanket seemed to stick very well to the oven even on steep areas; 3_Then started my vermiculite/perlite layer - target approx 25mm - but this was harder and hence slow in the steep bits, very easy over the top of the oven. The "chicken wire" helped but so did the blanket as its absorbent properties seemed to hold the mix in place;4_Dave has asked for wedding photos - this was in prep: we built an arch bridge over a spillway using rock and reinforced concrete- this shows the view towards the general site

Neat brick work doesn't cook any better than any other kind...it looks good.

Your throat and arch work looks good too....interestingly, it looks like you have more than half a diameter on both of them. No matter structurally though, there is plenty of thickness in the voussoirs for what you are doing.
