Cloita's 42" Pompeii in Plainfield, IL
 
Hello everyone, after about six months of reading and a few weeks of actually scouring the forums, I have finally started my oven. Our backyard concrete was poured in June and needed a good four weeks to cure. I took a four-day birthday weekend last week and got my start. My corner installation was inspired by Johnfm43's base so he gets first credit!

Excellent work, love the concrete look.. never seen that before..
Any chance those pics can be put underneath eachother instead of side by side?

Thanks. I'll think twice about that stamp design next time though, was hell getting that first course of bricks level.

It's about that time of the season again in the midwest. Poured my hearth, cut my fiberboard, and started dry fitting the oven floor.

Hi Colita,

I am doing a corner build too and about the same stage as you. Are you doing an enclosure or a dome? Still have not decided on whether to enclose or not but heading towards a dome style.
