Smile 42" in Hungary by Slovak guy ;)

Hi,
im a slovak guy living in Hungary, first village after the border called Rajka.
So i'm starting my build. I have sources for all material, some are different size or 2x as pricey. Nevermind.. all can be done

All is metric, no inches

All photos are stored here: Pompeii Brick Pizza Oven - a set on Flickr

Oven will be in the corner, near my workroom (summer room/house)


Made a base (205x240cm)

put some round stone gravel, premixed with sand (maybe 10cm), then used vibratory plate to fix it


then put some 5cm crushed rock and home made steel net (12mm and 8mm). 12mm rods on the edges (under block stand walls) and 8mm in the middle for concrete plate fixture


and thick layer of concrete


finished

A good start alex.g!
75 or 100 cm high? For me that means 30 or 40 inches high. I am over 6 ft tall (~150+ cm) so I would opt for the taller (100cm) height. It all depends on your preference; if you want/don't want to bend over to look into the oven; if children or persons of smaller stature will be using it, etc. My hearth floor is at 50 inches (125 cm), so I don't have to bend much. Either way you do it, I'm sure it will cook great pizza

It looks like you’re busy with several projects at once.

I hope you commemorated the laying of the slab with some Pálinka.

i was thinking to buy mier saw for brick cutting, but once i fund cut/broken bricks http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f6/f...lfs-16561.html (firebrick: Saw or brake into halfs)

So i bought that red thing instead (don't know the name in ENG)

how to cut a brick in less than a 30sec with no dust and heavy machinery

get all tools toghether


mark a half


make a furrow all round the brick (i think 3 would be enough too, one from the top and two in the sides)


then just hit with a hammer

A nice clean cut, alex.g. I would face the cut sides out and the factory sides in towards the fire. That is how the downloadable oven plans recommend doing it. You don't want any particles of brick falling into your pizza!

Looks good Alex.

I would spend a bit of time on determining what finished oven hearth height will work for you. This is an important dimension and difficult or impossible to change after the oven is built.
