looking good Scott.  The curing process seems tedious but it will be over soon before you know it.

Chau,

I did notice some hairline cracks on the mortar that I installed on the outside of the dome.  Did you experience any of that?

Yes, your mortar looks stronger than mine did.  Mine was rather dry and sandy, but as with the rest of the project, my guys did it so I did not personally mix it.  It just looked sandy when dried and I did notice a few hairline cracks.  No biggie though.

That looks great Scott. I definately did not appreciate the scale until I saw you standing next to it. Many good times to come for sure!

I like the big Lighter! You could use a match but hey its a big oven right. I use the even bigger one scripto XL reach. Seriously Looks great Scott and soon you will enjoy the fruits (Pies) of your Labor (Patience) . Oh I meant to ask is the chimney pipe they supply a double wall pipe? and do you have any pics of the finished inside ? just curious.
Ciao

Thanks everyone.

John,
The pipe is a single walled.  Here is the only pic I have of the inside.  The dark spot near the cap on the back piece is a patch that Forno Bravo did before they packaged and shipped.

CHEATER! 
I like a gentle start, Be the wood, get the splinters from the kindling, feel the weight and balance of each individual piece you place on your terrific tower, watch and study the dance of the flame .... Ya right! just kidding enough of that  :-D  I am not one to carry on, But I  am looking for one of those bad boys now for the mobile operation!

hey I started the lighter thing now I am gonna finish it!
 On a more serious note found these on EBay

back to thread-- thanks for posting the inside pics.  Looks very similar to my oven which is supposed to be a Pavesi Think I read somewhere they made Forno Bravos at 1 time?

Today I cut and installed the steel stud track around the perimeter of the oven.  I also did a half-a$$ mock up of the left side of the oven.  I plane on having a 5 inch simulated air intake over the oven landing which is hard to see from the pic and the hokey cardboard simulation.  The roof line will probably angle up and attach to another octagon about 30 inches in diameter and then it will be flat on top.

I like the idea of the simulated air intake/exhaust over the vent landing.  When you finish it out will it be round?

Nope.  It will have the angles in it.

That's going to look NICE.  I love that you're keeping the angles, tying it in with the stand shape.  Very classy.

Today I almost finished the insulation.  I have to wire it down and finish off where the front landing is.  I also did my first bake.  Not sure I got the oven hot enough.  The floor was definitely not hot enough.   The first pizza was almost a complete loss.  I tried to turn it before the bottom set and put a whole in it.  Oh well, it still tasted good.  The second one was OK.  I definitely need some more practice!
