Default Hi from Spain

Hi gents,

After lurking around a bit, I have downloaded the Popeii plans pdf.
I find amazing the amount of work, time and effort that you have done to make available to everybody this beautiful piece of knowledge, and your generosity in sharing it for free.

In other words, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I wish I would have found this place before building my own clay oven.

Keep up the good work.

Miguel

We'd love to see and hear about your clay oven too!

Madrid.

But my oven and my mind are in Cantabria, north of Spain.

Mine is a work in progress 100 cmts.(sorry I'm metric) "horno de pereruela". According to the brochure, it is made of clay with a high percentage of alumina, and cooked at 900C. Go figure.

If you google a bit for "pereruela" or "hornosartesanos" you'll get there.

Ill make some photos on the weekend and post them on the Other Oven types room.

Ah, yes, Cantabria....on the list to see. I have been west of there in Galecia and east of there in the Pyrenees but have not spent much time on the north coast....hope to catch it in the future.

It is time to go there, springtime is around the corner and you will enjoy if you do.

The food is not bad either.

Hola amigo hornero!

Ya has puesto tus fotos en el sitio de HORNOS ARTESANOS DE OBRA ?

I'd love to know where these guys all get their beautifully cast oven doors - mail order, anyone?

Cheers,

L.M.H.

Hola carioca,

Not yet.
It is only after having the oven half installed that I realized that there was so much activity in the net about wood ovens.

In relation with cast doors there is some people selling in here, but it's going to cost a fortune to send it to Oz.
A particularity of those is that the hinged (or slide) door shall be installed on the outside of the oven entry.
I supose this is less efficient then sealing on the inside dome entry, leaving the exhaust out, but as I said I have not tried yet.

Found a photograph on my wife's camera.

I warned you that this is a work in progress.

The oven fits in the place previously used by a brick oven dated 1920 completely destroyed.
