With that flame, your oven should be cured in no time!   :D

Cured all week. Finally letting this oven go and seeing what it can do. Wish I had some dough made up!

Looks great. I am hoping to follow in your footsteps this spring/summer. How did you finish the top of the chimney?  I see it is all boxed in, but what did you do around the pipe at the top of your framing? Keep the pictures coming. I'm looking forward to seeing your finished oven.

No they are all cemented together and filled. Along with rebar down each of them.

Better picture. Oh by the way. I forgot to say I added 8 bags of 4 cubic feet of vermiculite once the wonder board was up. I covered the entire inside. I can't wait to see how much heat this holds now.

Final coat of stucco is on!!!! I'm dying to make pizzas in here! I may have to go for it this Sunday! Stay tuned.  I'm going to eventually paint the stucco the same color as my house and stone the bottom portion of the oven base concrete blocks. But I am done for a while. Now it's time to get cooking!

Made pizzas the first time in the new oven! Only picture I could take was the last two pieces of the Nutella banana and powdered sugar. This oven rocks!

Well I actually got to paint it due to the weather warming up
this year.  Next year stone or brick, haven't decided yet.

The first one was goat cheese, sea salt, cracked black pepper, olive oil and prosciutto. And of course you know the second one  ;D
