I have some 'Glaze and Seal' stone impregnator left over from a job I did. (Not to be confused with Glaze and seal Saltillo Glaze) It says its water based and has price tag of $80 a gallon.

Hopefully it won't stain much. Travertines come in all shapes and finishes. Mine is Durango honed. The edges polished nicely. I had the polishing discs left over from my granite kitchen job as well. If you have a lot of iron in your water eventually it will stain some. We do so I expect some color change. The stone I'm using to face the base has a lot of iron staining already so maybe it will blend. I'm going to give it all the sealer it will absorb and let it do its thing.

Thanks boerwarrior.

It's been kind or hard to get anything done with the smoke the way it is.
I really struggled with location. I would have rather had 3' of ornamental clay flue than 15' of pipe but I'll live with it.
Most of the curing fires are done. Last one was up around 700 degrees.
The first pic shows the tie wire I embedded with the fire brick and the pencils keeping the rebar holes clean. I think the rebar cage will work out fine to install the wire lath with.

regards-

After a delay I've found time to finish the stonework and install the dome insulation.

I must say the modification to a wood float was invaluable. It made the insulation install easy.
I just marked the arc on a piece of wood, band sawed it and screwed it to the float. Easy.

I found perlite far superior to vermiculite. It works easy and doesn't compress.
Be sure to use a respirator.

Before you stucco, consider scoring the travertine 3/16"- 1/2" deep around the diameter of the oven, and use a flexible membrane to flash it. As an alternative you can use a paintable membrane (with seam tape) like Redgard or Hydro-ban.

Your tile work is great....very clean work on your joints and corner bevel.

Your travertine will darken over time, but it shouldn't be a drastic change...the earth tones look nice together, I like the contrast between the two finishes.

Is your stone from CA? I have worked with sandstone from Montana that was rich in iron oxide like yours....you might want to seal that to control rust bleeding.

Thanks for the compliments Stonecutter.

The stone is a local rock. I had to stop for a road crew one day and figured out where they dumped it. I went back and got tons and tons of it. Some of the rocks were over 300 pounds as you can see in post #5. I'll seal it after I wash it again.

I think you answered my very first question of my first post. I was concerned with thermal expansion but I think you are referring to water infiltration. Good point and thanks for the heads up. Do you have any product information on the seam tape you would use?

thanks-
Calisdad

Another beautiful oven. I'm considering using leftover travertine from my patio for the counter top, as well as leftover granite for the landing. Mine consists of pavers while yours are substantive. Alternatively, I'm considering using the travertine for the stone veneer, with leftover mexican river pebbles in between the pavers.
