Hey! I think you did a wonderful job on your oven. What was the total time that it took you to cast it? We have put together our foundation, getting ready to pour a hearth for the oven to sit on. Then we will build a form and cast our oven. Where did you get your fire brick tiles for the cooking floor? Where did you get or did you use, woven ceramic insulating blanket to put over the dome?

Hi Rep! Just showed my husband your oven and he is very impressed. He wanted to know what you used to shape your dome, was it sand? How did you get it to hold together, from the picture it looked very solid. Post pics of your first cook! It will be exciting, but be careful, don't cook the feret!

Hi Reptilazio,

A great bounty from your oven. Is that a gas line connected to your stand? What's its function?

Hello reptilazio,

WOW, that is a beautiful oven. I like the gas burner feature. Can you post some photos and a description about how you installed it?

Cheers,
