Dusty,
Sadly, I doubt I will be able to make the trip down. Kids in school, wife in school, baby at home on my lap. I'll bet the party's going to be a blast. I'm truely sorry to miss it.

Glad to see you're making progress on the cracks.
G.

My thoughts on Cracks....


When I was firing my oven for the first few times... it popped and cracked and popped some more.

It's a different sort of sound than wood. A pinging tone.
**** PIng ping pong pong ****
After a while I could tell when there was another crack, just by the sound.

During the build I kind of figured the mortar in the joints would crack, but it still amazes me that bricks can crack.

I never would of guessed that.

As James told me several months ago.
"Embrace your cracks.
And enjoy the pizza!!!"



These thing will stand tall! I have some severe cracks. A brick even fell out of my inner arch. Right where the dome ties in. But the dome still stands...(waiting for repair)

So don't worry too much. (frustrating I must admit... after all the hard work)

But I really don't think that there is much that can be done to prevent them!

Dave

That would be fantastic! If you make it to Sacramento, you all have a place to stay. I'm not sure how many kids we are talking about here, but we have overflow camping in the back! And by then I hope to know my way around the WFO.

If we can't get the world to participate, we could at least do a 1st annual Sacramento Area Wood Fired Pizza Night....I'm always looking for another reason to fire up the oven.

If I am open that night, I would love to come.
