I was in SLC earlier this week, and got the chance to meet Russell & his lovely wife, and to see his fabulous oven. It is a work of art! Thanks Russell for your hospitality! We very much enjoyed the visit and look forward to entertaining you when you get to Seattle

Did a couple courses of shingles this weekend. Reminds me of doing the brick dome, by time you reach the top you are getting pretty good with cutting and fitting, then you are done........with no more to do.

The oven cladding is looking great!
There is still a lot to do at the top and the exterior of the landing area and transition to your chimney though.
Now that you got the basics down pat, don't let anything distract you from finishing these "Scratch your head, sit down and think about it-final details".
Do you have some "final" piece to trademark your creation?

Russell

that looks stunningly gorgeous, a master at work.

Do you know I would leave the chimney the contrast against the copper looks complimentary.

again well done.

when you get the aged look happening, it will be take it to another level.

Russel,

Your dome is becoming increasingly famous. You should start choosing a name for it. It looks inspired from your beehiving, you may find a beehiving inspired name, or maybe a Gold inspired name.

Ann just said OH, MY.... When I showed her the most recent photo of your oven. We will need to stop by to see it when we come out to SLC in December.

Thanks guys, did one more course last night. Looking like one more full set of "skinney" shingles then a cap. Still gathering my materials and thoughts for the cap.

Mikku,

Yes, the tricky custom cut and fits are coming but I learned some skills while making the shingles.

Mr. C,
Looking forward to showing youand Ann the oven in person next Dec. Maybe I will even make a few runs with ya.

Dave, Loren, Lancer,
Thanks for the kudos but you all have great builds going on too.

Colin,
Still not sure on the chimney, my SS in not in perfect shape since I picked it up at a salvage yard so giving a copper sleeve a hard look.

V,
I dont' know about gold other that this copper has reduce my "gold" by a significant amount. I'll be able to take the SWMBO out to a movie and dinner with the money I will get back from just the scrap alone. LOL.
