I like your base design Kurtloup!

And apparently they don't have scorpions in Japan.
Killed 77 of them in our house in one calendar year and she who must be obeyed got stung on the butt! I did not laugh.......didn't breathe for a few minutes either!

They don't kill you but they hurt, and they hurt the dogs and cats even more. Scorpians and fireants must die, period.

I have no problem with your killing( it was what you were taught,99% of you have never been stung by a scorpian), but if someone else (especially a child) doesn't mind going the extra effort to capture and relocate the pest, and giving the reason (that it has the right to live), should be frighten into killing everything that can potentially cause us harm is wrong. If there's an infestation of any pest, most have to be destroyed and in some cases, such as honey bees, relocated. Do we want our children to have an innate fear of nature, that anything that can cause us harm, must be killed! Even the ancients taught avoidance, we can teach the children or in some cases let them teach us.

Thanks. I decided to deviate from the rectangle base. I think it makes the oven look not as massive.

This afternoon, I filled the blocks with concrete and rebar. I still have to fill the blocks under the oven. I ran out of time before it got dark.

Hi Kurt,

How large is your oven? It looks massive! That looks like a looong reach, to me, but it may be the camera angle?

It will have a 42" internal diameter. The end of the vent will be about 6-8" from the front. Too much landing? I used the 73" foundation width specified in the plans for a 42" oven, but I formed a 36.5" radius in the back. I made the foundation 115" deep to give me room to stand in front.

After work, I put in about an hour starting to frame the hearth. I hope to pour it this weekend.
