Oh, it's never to late to try. Maybe your next build will include some stonework!

Hey Doug

You should put the build pictures up on this thread of your consult builds.

Then index page 1 with the starting page location of the respective builds you consult on.

Dude,

I just checked this thread out and it is looking great! How long do you think it will take until someone builds one of these without mortar? It's getting close... Nice work!

That is a very interesting question to me, mainly because I do dry stonework in addition to using mortar. The biggest problem I see is that the brick would degrade relatively quickly (to a masonry structure) due to the movement created by thermal cycling. Mortar serves not only as a binder, but as a protective 'gasket' to stone and brick in masonry structures. And an oven has more movement in it than ordinary structures because of the continuous heating and cooling.

There are a couple factors that may add to the durability of a mortar-less oven though. One would be keeping the oven at a fairly even temperature or allow very little fluctuation in the oven temp, to keep movement to a bare minimum. Another would be using brick that is harder, like a high duty firebrick, which would hold up better to movement than the softer low-med duty brick. But then you are changing the performance of the oven using high duty. As is often the case with masonry, it's difficult to not give something up when you are trying to gain something else.

BTW Les, as many have told you, the dome you built is super...excellent work.
Karangi....apologies, I'm not trying or going to highjack your thread!

In answer to your question NO (do you think that question is really appropriate)

I and others find this quite offensive, I hope Josh has not seen this post yet I would hate for him to look at his lovely door and think of it in the way you suggest.

David may be you should engage your brain before you put your fingers into gear.
I'm sorry, you are quite correct, it was an insensitive remark. I think the door is really impressive.

David,

I respect you for standing up taking responsibility and admitting the error that has caused quite a storm. I suggest we all move on and use both Doug's and your's valuable knowledge and experience to make the next generation of WFOer's better.

Doug,

It has been a pleasure knowing you through this forum. Your ideas have inspired me and others to levels above which we thought that we could achieve.

A loss to everyone , though I understand why.

Cheers and thanks for everything.

Craig
