I got a good rise and crumb, and excellent flavor throughout. I love my WFO!!

Still waiting on your bread secret and a photo of it sliced.

The oven and the entire area looks fantastic. You can be very proud of your work and enjoy it for a long time to come.

Sorry Laurentius!!

We ate the bread before I could take another photo! I distributed loaves around the family, and everybody loved them. Next bake I do, I will take a sliced photo just for you Laurentius (and perhaps the rest of the members!).

But by no means am I a full-fledged baker like you. I'm more of a weekend baker, trying to get better on every bake. Just wanted a full disclosure out there.

And it was a San Francisco style sourdough starter. I just followed the instructions. My daughter even gave me her stamp of approval when she said: "that dough smells funny, papa..."

Thank you, Sharkey!

I could not have done it without borrowing some of your ideas from your build! Thanks for you support!

Aceves,
I've been waiting for that finished pic since you started the pyramid. It doesn't get more original or creative than what you have built. Beautiful job .

Congratulations on a great job. It all looks spectacular and you must be very satisfied with the results of your labour. The quirky touches are quite special.

Thanks Gulf!

I see that your Mississippi Queen is coming along nicely! Excellent craftmanship, Gulf. I see that you follow the same philosophy as me: it's all about the details in our ovens!
