Default 40" Corner oven in Manor Lakes - West Melbourne

Well after much thought and reading here I finally made the decision to build an oven. It will be a 40" corner installation with a 20" dome. 19" wide and 12-13" high entrance. The base has storage for the lawnmower and wood pile. The long edges are 1800mm and the cut off on the front is 1100mm. Will photos as the build progresses.

Any questions or if you see any issues please let me know.

Dan

Hey Johnny,

Why would a mower cause an explosion? The autoignition point of gasoline is 280C or 536F
while the flash point is -43C or -45F. Unless he has an ash slot, where live coals can ignite the gasoline he has nothing to worry about. If he stores wood under his oven it will ignite at 250C. If he's getting that degree of heat lost from his over he should rebuild, its a heat sink.

Vapours are my main concern, along with the possible sparks etc. not a real wise move, but would be OK if its not stored whilst WFO is in use.

That would have to be one bad ass nasty spark to jump out of the oven, go up and then back over the dome (enclosure?), drop down and ignite the possible vapors. If that happened - it was destiny. If Dan is going out, it's more likely from choking on bad pizza

A few more picks of the top slap reinforcing. To support the counterlever corner it is supported by a piece of solid I beam.

Also got the insulating boards down and started butting the floor bricks.

re: spark igniting the petrol gases, as the entrance is diagonally opposite the entrance to the oven, and the spark (providing is still glowing) will then need to go into the storage area. So,thanks for your concern but its a risk I am prepared to accept.

Dan

They've bricked up the house in the background and moved in while you put a slab for the oven down.......
