Come on bud...plug that puppy. Lets get cooking
Pile of rubble - NOT GONNA HAPPEN.......This oven is so tight, it will colapse in one piece
Seriously, are you leaving the insulation off during the cure? We are all pretty curious as to how much expansion/contraction will or will not occur in a near mortarless build. I can't see where you will have any issues.....just a curiousity thing.

Houston - the Bung has landed!

It was a good day in LesLand... Took a few hours but I was able to drop it in pretty close. I did use the last of my heat stop on the top to lock it in.

OK - the first pic is the obvious plug, and the second is - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

The third is for Frances only - she wanted to see my legs My wife and I had fun with this - she suggested the crossy leg thing - I don't go that way - everybody else - back off )

That is so cool -- the oven and the sky look great together. Time to fire up that beautiful open.

Congratulations Les.

Les,

This one should be entered in the Forno Bravo hall of fame. I'm guessing very little curing required due to the lack of mortar and moisture??

Wooohoo, that's fantastic!

Oh, and the dome also looks very nice... Do I have to back off, too?

Seriously, that dome is a thing of true beauty. Hall of fame? Definately!!

It'll be really interesting to see how it cures. I'd suggest waiting for about two weeks before you start though. Better safe than sorry you know... and it has the added advantage that I'll be back from my holls by then...
