Awesome job Tom. Congratulation on your WFO Gene, it is something to be proud of.

How do we put it back down at Gene's house?

Remember Tom suggested block ice to move your oven into the Garage?  I'm thinking of using margaritas to move the oven onto the porch.

If I drive a careful 5 mph back from Austin, it will only take 60 hours to get home.   ???

I hold the world record for slow travel from Baton Rouge to Lafayette, 60 miles, 14 hours.  We were on our way home from Destin FL, summer break in 1982.  We had borrowed a work van, loaded it with 40 cases of Old Milwaukee, a pound of sinsemilla, and very little common sense.  It was all good until we hit Red Stick on the way home when the transmission decided it did not like being hot.  We would drive a mile or so, then have to let it cool for an hour or two.

I also hold the record from Hammond LA to Lafayette, 22 hours.  My Chevelle overheated about 50 miles after we missed the SE University exit for a fraternity party.  Finals, and more importantly, Toga party the next day, forced my entourage to abandon me.  I could make 3-4 miles before I had to refill the radiator, the water pump was toast.  By the time I hit the Atchafalaya swamp, I had collected about 20 gallons worth of containers that got me across the 20 mile bridge.  I made the toga party, but not the finals, <shrug>.

I'm thinking I'll be drinking margaritas as I watch you move the oven to the porch.  ;D

Craig lives about 300 miles North of my house, no big deal for a Texan.

LOL that's awesome. I'd drive 300 miles to see something like that happen. Proud for ya man, the stuff you bake in that thing will be awesome no doubt.

300 miles is about driving around Houston on beltway-8 3.5 time.  If you live in Houston, you are already accustomed to long distance driving. I usually drive to Fort Laurdale, Florida couple of times a year that's about 1200 miles.

Looking forwared to see pictures of the pies comming out of that oven.

Me too.  I've got a good feeling that law enforcement will be involved before I leave Austin.

I laid the outer arch this evening, but left the camera at work.  8 or 9 more brick to lay, total.  Law enforcement in the neighborhood is pretty lax, Gene, we are in the county, not the city.

Thanks Tom.  I live in the County as well.  Unless we keep Craig caged up, maybe just a drive by from the County Sheriff might be necessary.

Post a picture whenever you get a chance.

Believe me.  Between the three of us, we could hook them up with whatever they want.

Tom,
    I am working up a design for my own WFO and wanted to know if you could post a list of the materials with quantities so I can use it to give me an idea of how much material I would need to build a 42 inch oven with a 16 inch dome. It would also help with getting pricing.

I found my invoice, Jeep. You may or may not need the chop saw.

Nope, I got it back.  Here is where we are as of now, the entry is all cut, but the top 2 courses are not glued.  The top is 11x13, so you will need to do a little trimming for the Durapipe adapter.  Tomorrow, glue that together and mix perlcrete.

   Thanks. I will need the chop saw, someone liked mine more than I did.

Prolly cheaper to keep her. Sears is always selling those at deep discount. Half decent unit you then have around the garage at the cost of a couple days rental.

Very nice symmetry
Who put that pie in my eye ?
