Congratulations Jim - A great feeling when the plug goes in and if it sits a bit proud then why not! Onwards towards the first pizza cook, or the interesting pre-pizza cooks with the larger of the drying fires.

I have had the pleasure of helping a couple of people get their ovens built lately and have had the pleasure of dropping two keystones in place in the last 2 weeks. The owners both had a grin like a watermelon that has been hit with a machete.

Good job and if a pretty build cooks well it is hard to tell the difference between the food from the pretty oven and the 'robust' one.

Thanks all! Every time, I get a kick out of hearing from people in Australia. I guess I'm still not used to this whole internet thing.

Steve - I like that - my build is "robust." I'm gonna keep using that.

Dave- The angle grinder was only used to shave a cone-ish plug. I definitely am not skilled enough to make bevel cuts with it. For that, and for all the side 5 degree cuts, I used my trusty jig, see pic. At first, I didn't think I could do a bevel with a 10" saw, but I didn't use a bottom, just propped it with a brick. The angle stayed pretty steady, and the rig stayed lower to the sled, which allowed me more cutting depth.

I'm suddenly feeling sentimental about the jig and IT. Maybe I'll have them bronzed. Or maybe I'll just burn them in the oven in a spectacular blaze of glory.

So I've been planning on 12" deep vent. Is that enough room for an 8" flue?
