I like to see all the pretty ovens get covered with soot! Makes me feel better. But I think John's curing period puts yours to shame Gulf.

hi guys dennis chip gulf etc.

Maybe not so far away, I might believe. I have had private conversation, be patient. I think the whole forum wants to see new posts from John around his completion, front arch landing, fire up etc.

I'm thinking all in good time.

It would be a shame to dirty up his oven, it looks so damn PRETTY.

Wait till you have been doing this for a couple of years, I still spend about an hour a day reading on this forum. So much good stuff.

BTW: you stumbled on to one of the best builds by finding this thread.

Yeah,
Chip is right on. I've been lurking here off and on for years and just built my oven this year. Once you're hooked.........

Hello All,

Glad to be back after all these months considering my company closed its CA offices (laying everyone off) and then I hit a bit of a rough patch with my health which initially landed me in the ER. Feeling much better now, but getting old is really getting old and I'm still in my fifties!

Fortunately, I can report I'm on the homestretch on my oven (and now fully-cured dome ). I have completed the entryway save for the last two leveling courses. The welding of my custom-designed flue (by a family member) got derailed but is now at a commercial fabricator who promised it to me last week and now says hopefully day after tomorrow.

I really struggled with an approach to constructing my flared entry and integrating a 13.5"(h) x 22.5"(w) inner arch with a 12.5"(h) x 26"(w) outer arch. I finally got it figured out and kicked myself for not attacking it sooner because it really wasn't that difficult a job, just time-consuming. All in all, it was a fun part of the project.

Anyway, here's some pics and a profile of my vent. I really wanted the vent architecture to be totally seamless to give the oven exhaust every opportunity to go up rather than out the front of the oven. Hence the trapezoidal shape and an outer arch that is an inch lower than the inner arch. I think it came out okay.

I'll report back when I get my flue installed and hopefully a first fire (really?) video a week later.

John

Hey John, good to see you back at it. I had a similar set of circumstances last year (laid off, surgery with long recovery). Pizza oven is just what you need to distract yourself. But that oven might be too purty to light a fire in it.
