Thanks Bartman.

We were pretty fortunate, the fire started about 3 miles north of us, but the entire week we had winds from the south, so the fire/smoke was blowing away from us (and most of the Colorado Springs city limits). Needless to say, I didn't get much done on the oven for a few days.

Default Re: 36" oven in Colorado Springs (tools

In case anyone's interested, here are the main tools I've been using.

Bucket with small square trowel, and the useful item is a paint stir stick, to mix the mortar, then for the used ones, I cut of the other end and use them as a "mini" trowels for the mortar lines, etc.

Then of course, building a WFPO is a lot easier using a 10" wet saw and grinder.

yeap, today was a productive day, got the 10th course complete too!

and, this morning I picked up some free wood (from a guy on craigslist), which included a fair amount of wood from a cherry tree a he cut down.

plan on doing the 11th course tomorrow, then plugging the dome on Sunday(or at least creating the plug).
