BSO, I love the brick you've chosen.  That's a pretty smokin' looking oven.   8)

Thanks a lot. We were orignally going to get a darker gray color(the color of the arch)but they didn't have enough so I got these ones. I think they look pretty good as well.

BrickStoneOven.......very nice brick work you got going there.  Are you planning on keeping the circular profile of the oven?

What do you guys have done for doors? I bought extra blanket just in case so I have a lot left overto make a door with. I was thinking of sandwiching 3-4" of insulation inbetween two piece of SS, would that work? I'm going to have a wooden door made so I'll put that on the back side. I have anothe idea but I'll wait to see what you guys say, I wanna be able to keep as much heat inside as possible.

I wanted to but after my dad and uncle not wanting to do it the way I wanted it to be done because it was going to be to much work for some reason... we are going to make it square.

I don't blame them for not wanting to go the circular route.  Circular stands, hearths, and enclosures just take much longer to form and build as I found out with my current oven build.
As for my door, I might just start out with a thick solid wooden door, soaked in water...

Do you have any pictures of your oven?

The only reason they didn't want to do it is because they didn't want you break/cut the bricks in half. If I had a tile saw I would have done them all myself, but they kept yelling at me like I was retarded or something. W.e I don't really care how it looks as long as I can use the oven.

I'm the guy with the 3-legged dome project over at FornoBravo.

I figured you can easily do a cylindrical shape enclosure.  With a large diameter like that you really won't be cutting any bricks.

My dad told my uncle that we didn't have the bricks when we actually did, so my uncle didn't come until Friday when he was supposed to come on Tuesday. If it didn't start raining yesterday I would be making pizza tomorrow. It is almost done, there is only one more slab of limestone to be put on top for the roof and its done. Only thing after that is getting the marble for the table and the front of the oven. I don't wanna post anymore pictures until it is fully finished.

It should have had been done about a month ago, there were so many set backs. Its like Murphy's Law, "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong".
