Here's a photo of my oven in progress as of a few days ago when I first asked about curing with or without insulation.

If this posting works, I'll post more photos later.

Thanks1

I have a question. Did u use red brick for your floor as the picture would seem, or is there fire brick on the floor we cant see.

Thanks

The baking floor of the oven is red firebrick, as is the dome.

All the rest, and the eventual shell, will be used bricks.

I like the way the red firebrick looks (I guess because most others are using the cream colored bricks).

Thanks!

I like the look of the red firebricks, too.


Progress report: The insulfrax arrived from Forno Bravo and we installed it around the dome. It wraps around and stays put pretty easily. I am in the process of curing the oven, now.

Brian, the mason, is in the process of curing his swollen, painful wrist.

I'm just hoping we can get the oven cured and covered before too much longer, so I can make Thanksgiving Pizzas--if not Halloween Pizzas!
