Default Re: Starting my WFO finally

Travis - my opening is around 22 x 14. I have a 1 inch reveal so the net opening is around 20 x 13. I've been pretty happy with it so far.

Travis, you could stop right now and your dogs will be so happy you built them this cool, cement room to hang out in.

It's great you've started your WFO, I just thought you've had one already for some reason. I't s great to see a new build. It's also great to share it with friends and family. It makes it all the more special for everyone.

Say, are you building it under a covered area? Nice base and stand. Cant' wait to see the rest. What size oven are you planning on?
Take care, Dino

the dogs will enjoy it quite well LOL. thinking about not quite filling the wood storage all the way up to save room for them, hehehe.

it will be a 44" inside diameter. it was due to the frame work i chose the dome. it papasan chair frame you saw in the first set of pics.

it is going to be a community effort. its going to be a family gathering for sure. thankyou all very much.

Hey Travis, with all that help it'll be done in no time!
I'm looking forward to seeing your oven take shape - any idea yet what kind of finish you want to do?

i am planning on brick around the base and slate around dome. and red 6" ceramic around the top. if i have enough help ("help" key word in here LOL) there
will either be red terracotta or brick for chimney. if the help holds out, LOL. i ain't going to have any trouble there, i have a support team.
