Default Finishing touches

I finally took time off from cooking pizza and baking bread to add some finishing touches to our 42" Pompeii oven.

We had poured a curved concrete roof to enclose the oven dome, and I wanted to hide it. I picked up some 12 X 12 slate tiles at the Home Depot, cut them to 6 X 6, and rechipped the edges. Installed over the concrete, they are a nice improvement and the 6 X 6 size is scaled nicely to the size of the enclosure.

Also fashioned a exterior steel door, mostly for looks, but it may help keep out any blowing rain.

Now my wife says its time to move on to other projects around the home.

Nice finish on the oven. The roof is really cool.
