Ok guys I have given a lot of consideration to the suggestions for the name on the oven, and have decided that I will probably just leave it blank and tile it like the rest of the oven.  I think my last name would not look so good plasterd on the front. I noticed looking at pictures on the Forno Bravo website of completed ovens, that almost 100% of the ovens that people have  built had nothing written on them.  I really did like " I Capitani Forno" ;D. Thanks for the compliments and suggestions.

Hi Scott,

If you stick with the "oven captain" the translation is "capitano del forno".

How about just the year it was built?

Ev,

I like that idea.  Would it be the year that it was finished? I built most of it last year.

I don't know, I guess it's up to you but I don't think it really matters, especially several years down the road. I keep meaning to make a plaque out of a scrap piece of copper with my name and 2010 on it, since that's when most of it was done.

I finished the tile today.  I decided not to write anything on the front.  Grout and sealer to go!
