Eddie,
What size is your oven stand/hearth for the 28" oven?
Thanks,

Hi Gene,

Here are all the measurements: the stand is 43 inches high, plus 3.5 inches concrete slab, plus 4.5 inches vermicrete(vermiculite and portland cement).
It is 55 inches wide by 72 inches long. this is to accomodate 28 inch cooking surface + 4 inches fire bricks width + 5 inches insulation on the side before I apply the stucco, it is longer from back to front to have some working surface. Hope this answers your question.
Cheers

Eddie

The hearth slab is 55 inches by 72 inches but the insulation slab is 36 inches by 44 inches.

Wow how tall are you?
You have a total of 51 inches not including the cooking floor?
Arn't those 8 inch blocks? That would make the stand 32 inches high?

You are right these are 8 inches blocks and the stand alone is 32 inches high, however, because the land where the oven is being built is not straight, I had to raise the foundation slab; it is 12 inches high from the far side and 9 inches from the near side. But have no fear I still have to bend when I have to look into the oven to turn the pizza when done, but not that much.
Cheers mate

Hey Dino,

What kind of brick cutting machine do you have?
I am looking at your album, and those cuts are fantastic.

Salute

Hi Gene,

I forgot to list the oven internal size, the vault is going to be 16" high, the entry width is also 16", and the height of the entry is 11" at the center of the arch but only 4.5" before the arch starts. I am thinking the chimney should be around 40" high at the outer arch.
Hope this helps and/or let me know what you think

In my build thread on page 3-

http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f8/4...dome-5873.html (4 years in the making - 42" dome)

I have a spreadsheet that I put together for figuring the arch. Pretty simple (like me) but it works.

Hope this helps!
