Title "I get by with a little help from my friends."
Description This oven project was like button soup. Friends would stop by to say hello, and find themselves mixing mortar without even being asked, or climbing onto the foundation and holding bricks as they were aligned. One friend dropped off a pick-up load of firewood. One friend stopped to give me advice on the transition from the cast opening to the chimney, and ended up bringing back a sheet of stainless steel to face the front of the oven with. He took the remainder to a black smith and had it made into a shelf for the oven. Another friend had to tear out a chimney from an old house and brought the bricks to my house for the oven facade. Other friends helped with the concrete, cinder blocks, metal framing.........the list goes on.

While I am very happy (and a little proud) how the oven turned out, it wouldn't have happened without the help of good friends!
