As well built as your oven is, I think the truck would take the beating, not the oven!

So you're not going higher than this with your chimney? Or did you mean no higher with the flue tile and now you'll switch to something else?

Your brick work looks really good, by the way. And I don't think the oven looks like a cone.

Elizabeth - I will take the brick to the top of the flue tile. It was drawing pretty good without the second section, so I think it will be good enough. In regard to the cone , if I have time, I am going to add more stucco.

Gross approximation unless you think the load is evenly distrubuted which it is not.... makes it 1800 pounds.

You can get a more exact number without too much effort by measuring the foot print of the tire = this is area in square inches. Then measure your tire pressure which is in , if you use the right tool, pounds per sq inch.

Multiply tire pressure by tire foot print and viola weight!

ain't engineering fun!

Agreed - I just wanted to see what would happen to the product. I will probably add another 70 brick, at 2 lbs ea. that's only 140 lbs. I'm not sure I follow your calculation, as there is a variable If my tire's footprint is 8x7 and my tire PSI is 1 (a flat tire), that's only 56 pounds. That's less weight than the intake manifold alone.

Sorry to bore everyone watching the grass grow - I just want to document the process for the newbies.

Since there is nothing to tie the bricks to, I decided to add some steel for the second story (probably not needed). I had to fill the cavity anyways - no harm, no foul. I did put about 6 inches of high heat mortar on top of the fire brick - after that, it was type S. I am excited though, the end is in sight! And knowing that Norway has lost it's summer - I need to get my ass in gear.

Les, never hesitate to post pics - I don't think you could ever possibly bore me with your oven!

This is what the thing evolved into. I bought 5 more gallons of acrylic stucco today to give it a better shape and help it withstand the weather. I still need to build the vent cover (stainless steel) add the porcelain edging, and do an acid wash. My door is in process (the shop just got slammed). Outside of that, it's pretty much done.

Les,
Lookin' on point! Wow, super clean man. I really Like the whole layout. Are you going to paint the stucco? I can't wait to see the door.
