Hey Russell -
Looks good! Just an idea on the wicking - maybe you could pour a concrete ring on top of your counters/around the oven that would elevate the base of your roof above the counters? Make it 2" x 3" and then you have something to run a rain edge to w/o having to go all the way to the counter edge. Use zypex additive in the concrete so it won't wick back water from the counter.

Umm, that is an idea. Do you think a cold seam between ring and counter would cause the same issues? BTW, how is the foot doing?

I didn't exactly have that that thought through, but I think you could seal that seam a bit more easily than trying to seal a flat joint with your countertop. Grind the concrete down a bit and apply some bonding agent. Round the joint so the water flows away. I think your countertop is sloped away in any case, isn't it?


Foot is doing much better. Thx for asking. I can't do much in the way of athletics, but I'm getting around pretty well.

Good food for thought. Need to re-evaluate what I am going to do. Going to see if Mikku's copper friend has any suggestions too.

Thoroseal is cement based and Drylok is latex. I have used Drylok before too, on foundation walls. Good product too. I don't think I would trust it on warm surfaces being latex though.

Russ, if you don't have them, I recommend getting hand seamers..3 & 6 inch. They allow you to tighten up your bends when they intersect, and make adjustments better than a small hand brake. I have an apprenticeship in HVAC, but most of what we did was sheetmetal fabrication..those little tools were very useful to me.

I didn't check the old posts, but I think I recommended practicing on aluminum coil stock, because it's easier to bend for practice pieces.

As for your countertop, any good quality penetrating sealer plus a couple coats of wax should do the trick.

Stonecutter,

I do have a hand seamer with different width of jaws so I am good there. I will practice on some cheaper metals before I go much farther. Going to look for Thoroseal or equal tomorrow.

Some truth to once the oven is functional the hardest part is doing the finished work. I a prime example. Been working a adjacent features like a deck. Still mulling over how to make the starter course on copper shingles. Mikku has been helpful in talking to one of his copper craftsman in Japan for suggestions. So nothing here to report except....here are my San Marzano finally getting fruit. I had great ideas of making sauce and such with my SM but being heirloom tomatoes they just don't produce heavy enough. So they will be slices on the pizzas. Mr. C posted pics of his babies, where are Gulf's and Tu's??

Russell,
I think that you could spot me a week or so, due to the US Mail . I was waiting until I could get a good pic of a ripening cluster . Your tomates look great, by the way. I got a late start for our growing season down here. It has been a while since I have grown my own tomatoes. When I did it was only Marions. They are a great for our climate. I had a rough start with the San Marzono's. Late start, cut worms, blossom end rot and who knows whats next .
They do seem to put on a lot of fruit down here, though. If it were not for the above mentioned, I think that I would have a big crop. Next year, I will get an early start, I've got a plan for the cut worms, and won't have to dissolve half of my wife's calcium supplemants for the "maters" .
