First time oven build
 
5 Attachment(s)
Finally after years of wanting one I get around to building my very own Wood fired oven, i have decided to go with cast mainly because of the time /effort and cost of using firebrick. I have the base up and am about to install the fire board and firebrick hearth. The floor measurement is going to be 120cm
here are photos of the build so far

Great to see another Aussie on board giving it a go.
Welcome aboard and I hope you get what you plan on. Building with brick is not that difficult and you don't necessarily need to use firebricks

Cheers.

Hi fellow Pizzaioli, here is an update to my build, I have formed the dome and started on the entrance formwork. next will be the dome cast, any suggestions as to what i can add to the ciment fondue and crusher dust mix to make it less prone to cracking?
Cobbler dave suggested stainless steel needles????

Stainless steel fibres add 2% by weight. Try Antec Engineering. The real name is melt extract fibres.

How thick did you make the dome?

Re: First time oven build
 
I have not cast the dome yet. what you see is the sand and plasterboard mould.
I will make the dome 4 inch thick then 3 inch of insulation then 3 inch of perlite then 1 inch of render then tiles

I am using fire board below the hearth and fire blanket insulation around the dome
