Our SM tomatoes are about the same size.

Your oven is looking great.

What a nice looking door! It will compliment the copper cladding I'm sure.


For manufactured veneer on CMU, you could get the pre-blended, that's the easiest way....or just go 2:1 with type S or N, and use a little admix. I happen to be doing a fake stone job right now, and I'm using type N. I'll put some pics on my thread when it's done.

I don't work with this stuff too much, this is the 5th project in the last 16 years...but since it relies on bond exclusively, make sure your substrate is clean and your mortar is rich.

I would like to make a suggestion though. Go with real stone on the base if you can. They sell thin stone that adheres the same as manufactured veneer, and corners are available too. With all that copper work, it would really elevate the overall look.

Thanks guys,

I'm a slow poke now, seems once the oven become workable the finish work seems to slow down.

Stone,

Thanks for the input on lick and stick. I already have the faux stone so unless I find a deal I guess I am heading with what I got. No doubt the real stuff would be the cadillac. But then again you have the stone setting skills, I don't. I would like to see your pics of the current project.

Ah, well maybe natural stone on the next oven. Thin stone veneer is about x2-x3 what manufactured veneer is. That said, it doesn't require any more skill than installing g fake stone does, because it isn't masonry work.

What did you end up getting? The product I'm installing is made by Eldorado, it's called shadow rock and,have to admit, I like the look....it's the closest I've seen to natural stone.

"Handles" Hll, those are a fashion statement !!!.
They blend great! with your door style.
They look like that they would have been better previewed on the MQ,though. .
Seriously, they look great, and don't fret if something similar shows up again on someone else’s build. Mine
