Greco,

I couldn't wait to get started on my WFO, so I took the forms off after two full days of curing and had no probs... I know Dino recommended 5 days, but I'm not sure if it's necessary to wait that long or not. Just my two cents!

Greg

I'm with Greg, 2 full days should be fine but I'd leave the brace on the bottom underneath longer to ensure no sagging.

The forms have been off for a couple weeks now and the stand and hearth are tucked away for the winter. I thought about setting up a tent and working through the winter. Then I decided I am in no rush. I am going to work on the floor and arches over the winter in my garage. I have also been working on some bread recipes that I plan on using once this baby is complete.

The pics are of the finished stand and hearth; and a Pugliese i made today using a sourdough starter.

Wow, the Pugliese looks great! Did you use those baskets for final proofing? You've got a nice rise and airy insides. Sounds like a good plan (bread baking) while you wait for better weather.
Cheers, Dino

I did use the baskets for the final proofing. I lined them with cloth which I lightly brushed with olive oil and dusted with flour.

Hi,

I live on Long Island too. I was wondering if you could tell me what supplies were needed and how much expertise would you say a person needs?

Thanks,
Ann

Hi Ann
Please view and/or download the Pompeii oven building instructions from this website. They are free. There you'll find a materials list and step by step construction information.
Many/most of us had no previous brick masonry experience prior to starting our builds. If you can follow a recipe, have a strong back, a occasional helper or two and some free time, you can build a WFO.
