Hi Jer_vic, good to know there is an outdoor oven man on Van Island. I am on the Sunshine Coast BC and would like to talk to you as I am also in the middle of a cast project. I am using a product called Moldit-X for the refractory. Would be interested in what you used in your build and what you plan to use for the castable project. Send me a private message if you are interested in some local materials talk.

Hello fellow Canadians.
Started my build a couple days ago and planning to cater a wedding on Aug 11th. I do have a backhoe, some limited masonry experience and a fairly well equipped machine shop, but Is that blindly optimistic? My plan is to pour the pad and bottom tray onto a metal stand on the same day, build the oven in the garage and move it with a loader on to the pad once it has dried. Crazy? not going to work?

Coasterbouy, my build took alot longer than I had planned, but I didn't have machinery or experience, all my mud was mixed by hand in a barrow, some 16 or so bags for the hearth... Building in the shop would remove the elemental affect which at best is challenging. I have no experience with moving an oven and what cracking damage it could sustain. I was a weekend warrior and had it usable within two and a bit month. So with solid commitment and machinery advantage I'd say giver and you should/could be golden.

Look forward to hearing and seeing photos of the build.
Best of luck

Nice planning with the garage. No weather and you can burn the midnight oil. I started my build this spring and have been rainded out several days. You will have no worries moving your oven with your back hoe. I would recommend a 36 inch. Don't go to fast and let the courses dry and make sure to make the angle cuts for each brick. Cut the sides of each brick and the bottom for the angle. About 1/2 inch on each side and 1/2 inch for the bottom your angles will increase after the 5th or 6th course as the slope increases. You will be happy with using less morter and it will dry much faster than filling the caps with morter. You will defiantly need a indispensable tool.

Thanks for the tip re cuts. I was planning on loading up the
morter.... But way more cutting = more bricks, does the FB kit come with enough?If not GTA source for more? I guess I'm going to have to bite the wet saw bullet (did a bunch of slate in the winter with angle grinder was thinking same for fire bricks) I'll do a search for best suited saw on the forum. Form for kitchen pad /oven ready, rebar wire in the AM and concrete truck ETA tommorow before lunch! Tonight burning midnight oil indeed. A pile of steel needs to become a stand with form and rebar by AM.

The angle grinder is absolutely awful for cutting each brick. The dust is crazy and it's takes forever to make a cut. A wet saw cuts like a warm knife through butter !! It's fast, clean cut lines, no dust and generally safe. Remember your working in your garage keep it simple. Have your saw beside your bricks inside your garage. You can work late at night with no rain. If use your grinder you will have to make your cuts outside and keep moving bricks in and out of your garage. Make sure your wet saw can make a deep cut through the bricks, most tile saws don't cut deeper than 3 inches so you will have to flip the brick to complete the cut when you cut ech brick for your arch.

Coasterbuoy, did I read you are using a FB kit? ..you may not have to cut too many bricks .. I used a combo of heatstop 50 [self hardening refractory cement] for the inner inch between bricks and backed up with mortar fill . The dome was one of the faster jobs on my oven. you will want to parge with mortar too , but if your enclosure is not too elaborate [ and you don't have -30 to deal with] you should have time . As has been remarked you can burn the night oil and not lose any time to rain [which I hear you have a lot of this year] ..

Yes using a Forno Bravo 36" kit. So they send them pre cut. That would be sweet but I suppose it would be difficult for them to do that with so many dome variations..... Looking at the pallet it appears they are not cut.
