Hi Peter
I love your build! I am hoping to do something similar to you and build my oven on a steel stand to be moved by a forklift. I noticed that it seems you left out the structural concrete layer and just poured vermiculite concrete straight on to the steel plate. Is that what is on top of your stand? Just a sheet of mild steel? Did you do anything to fix the vermiculite concrete slab/oven to the stand or is it just sitting on top? Have you had any problems with the steel stand/slab not being rigid enough, or any cracks from the different expansion of concrete and steel. Thanks for any answers you can give!
joe
