I know it's been awhile, but it's just about done. I'm waiting for the rust to develop on the more recent metal work (6 months ago) before I stop it. The oven gets quite a bit of use. I'll enclose the bottom when time permits and maybe lightning strikes. Thanks to James, Les, Dmun, and all the great builders who have gone before!

A beautiful job! The bridge, the setting, and the oven are worthy of a painting by Monet. I hope your wife has changed her opinion. Gary

Very cool! That's like a steampunk oven!

Beautiful work - I also love the "monet" bridge - is that little "knob" thingy at the apex of the dome functional (i.e a sort of valve to release moisture) or purely decorative?

My sincere thanks for all the compliments! Yes, the little chimney on top of the dome is in case there is some steam. The oven in general is vapor tight to a large degree, but I was a little surprised to see vapor after my son decided to kiln the next load of wood in the oven. I had no idea wood could hold so much water, maybe 2-3 gallons I would guess. I've thought about some decorative valves, handles, cast wheels, pipe etc to make a locomotive like.

Build Strong!
Mark
