Finally able to get back to the oven. I finished the block wall around the oven and filled every other cell with concrete and a "J" hook for later. The next layer is a combination cap and half round break between layers. I got some thick walled 3 inch water pipe for the round mold. Firstly ripped in half, then another cut on the upper edge for a blended look. I wanted to try out the Quikcrete Countertop mix. It was a little bit of a pain since it is a fairly dry mix. I ended up using 7 1/2 bags @ $11.00 a bag. After a couple of days I'll remove the mold and see how it turned out. Next step is metal framing for the rest of the way up.

Removed the molds. It worked out fair. I blew it on the chimney design. I didn't get the angles right in my planning. Does anyone know if it's ok to stack the angled chimney pipe as pictured? I'm trying to offset the chimney about 3 feet without having a 15 foot tall enclosure.

Well, after alot of deliberation, this is what I am stuck with for a chimney system. I'll have to remove the anchor plate and build a transition out of brick etc. I can't go higher because of the pergola structure. When finished, I'll run a few fires to see how the draw will be. If worse comes to worse, a blower installation might be needed. Oh well.

Thanks Lee, I am enjoying the challenge but I'll be relieved when it's "dried in". Everyone still thinks I'm nuts.

Magnificent looking job, I'm looking for any ideas I can find for my pergola area so I'll be watching with interest!

Thanks Russell. Do you need plans for a pergola? or something to put under it. I have plans for the one I'm building which will be about 22 ft square. It's designed to withstand hurricanes, but I'll be glad to share them with you if it's what you're looking for.

Hi Leigh,
How's the build going? I haven't seen much posted.
I've been left to work on my counter (too much rain and freezing temperatures mixed in with all these beautiful days). Oh yeah, my real work gets in the way too.

PS I'm going to be in Gulf Shores the first week of April.
