Mine is 21" and will just fit (door height limit) a 5 Kg turkey, I often cook roasts or two or three loaves of bread. The size suits us fine. The base is 910 x 910 mm and it weighs 250 Kgs. Everyone who has a WFO tends to think that they couldn't do with one any smaller than the one they have.

Thanks, one more question what is the outside Diameter and height of your oven and door size? I think after I know your finished dimensions I will build a 24" oven. I will have 3 a small one then a 42" or a little bigger then for fun a barrel oven with the opening on the side. Then I can answer all the questions I have about each for myself. Use the the small one for my wife and I the barrel for bread and the big one and just sit and look at the big one. Have to have a hobby

Well 2 more questions first what is the max temp put out in the oven. I talked to a person who works for a concrete manufacture today he said 2300 degrees was way over anything the oven would see. Mentioned somewhere around 1000F to 1200F degrees.
If you build a dome and are not going to enclose it what do you use to waterproof the plaster coating. Mine will be out in the open.
Thank you
Hank

The 1200F estimate is what I'd expect as the max, inside oven temps. I'm sure you could get it over this if you decided to run an air blower into the burning wood for a sustained period but this is not standard operating procedure for our WFOs.

Thank you for the help on the heat although I hope I build it right and don't have to use a way to keep the wood burning
