Oven Build Video

What do you guys think??

I'm not sure about the tear-drop shape.

Anyone know how much they cost?

That is a Quebec Bread Oven..or built to look like one. The shape favors bread baking but will work for anything.

Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.

I think his mortar is too wet and he spends entirely too much time on each brick.  Hard to make a living at that pace.  The shape, as noted, is Quebecois, but not unsuitable for pizza.
