Pictures of making stand from ground up. It took almost 2 1/2 months working on it part-time. On to next phase

How I spent my Saturday afternoon. Impatiently awaiting arrival of oven. The bubble in the level doesn't show well, but it is dead center and the framing square gives testimony to the square corner. Yea!!

Neighbor stopped to visit and I conned him into helping me set the base. He probably won't visit again until this project is finished. work has stopped at this point because of rain.

Oh my gosh I'm an idiot. I'm currently putting together my 950b and four of us almost killed ourselves lifting those dome pieces into place. The best part is, I even have an engine hoist just sitting behind my garage. ARGH!

Antoine, maybe you can recommend an engine hoist in the instructions? Hahaha.

That was my biggest hang up on my home oven was stumped on how to do the roof for a month !
ended up few angles and just going out the side of roof,  much easier than trying to get through gable for me

Following are pictures of front before and after adding front bottom pieces. Then put 11 bags of vermiculite (expensive) inside for insulation. Would have had it totally enclosed yesterday except I broke a $%&@! roof piece cutting it and had to stop and go get another sheet of hardibacker. After cutting the 1/2 backerboard by hand, I hope to never do that again................

Its all enclosed and joints sealed. Going to tarp it because heavy rains predicted for ne3xt two days. after that it is on to first coat of stucco.

Chad, the roof doesn't have any stucco on it other than that I splattered. I have a collection of Spanish barrel tile salvaged from roofer's boneyards to go on the roof.  I think that is next step before putting on the stucco finish coat. God invented blue painters tape  to prevent sloppy people like me from getting finish coat on the tile

Second night of pizza party.This time for son's birthday. Got lots to learn about baking with this oven.  most of the pies are baked  one-sided because I didn't keep fire rolling over the dome and got some of the sides too close to fire. Will correct next time, but the pies  tasted just fine.

Pretty spiffy! What's the height of the prep table from the floor and does it always feel comfortable. Are you the main person using it and how tall are you?

Post by: TXCraig1 on December 26, 2014, 08:46:33 AM
The work surface is 36". I'm 5'11", and it's perfect - no bending over or feeling like you have to stretch to reach anything. At least a dozen other members of this forum have made pizza on it, and nobody ever had any difficulty.

It is 37 1/2' from floor, which is roughly about 1 1/2' higher than standard kitchen counters. I am 6'3' and this is an ok height for me and others. I don't think you height is as important as your arm length and I would  bet 36-37" would be comfortable for most folks. The table doubles as a wild game prep table (thus the small sink) and is on wheels so I can roll away into the pool area so the table is out of sight. I am happy to answer any questions just as everyone else on this site has done for me.

After re-reading Craig's two threads completely for the third or fourth time, I picked up several nuances that I hadn't noticed before and incorporated them into last nights bake. Best yet. Tasted great but B- when one uses Texas Craig as measuring stick overall.

Thank you. While there is still lots to learn, I am slowly figuring how to bake with this oven. I am attaching photos of last weekends bake; baked 8 pies but pigs ate four before they could be photographed. The last one is lop-sided because I hit back wall when launching.

This bake was best yet. 62.5%,2.8%,2% mixed about 6 minutes and baked roughly 1.1 minutes. Dough was wetter than usual, don't know why unless I mis-measured or the humidity affected. But the result was not only eye appealing but also was more tender than anything to date.

Its been too wet to bake or work on oven until today. I opted to bake before the rains come again. These were over fermented, I think because the crust was very chewy. I have been using 2% starter and the old wine cooler doesn't seem to cool right. The dough was ready maybe 10 hours before I used it. I intend to cut the starter back and dial the temperature down.

"The Tempel of Pizza" would be pretententious statement adorning ones WFO Don't you think?
Although I think of each WFO built with passion to be One!

How is that different from how you referred to your WFO yesterday???

I revolve against time, and burn the fire on the left side in my temple of dough purification

As I said, I do like the unpretentious statement on Crawsdaddy's WFO.
(I would hesitate to adorn my build with the title of "Temple")
In English it is so tricky to get the hidden meanings of sentences for non native-speakers.
If I say: "I like" I do mean: "I like" ;D

And at the same time I see "each WFO" that is build with passion (Or attended to with passion) As a Temple!

I did enjoy working, baking and worshipping my WFO in Greece for the month of July.
Now it's back to my Job and live here in Amsterdam and I do miss Corfu her wealth of nature the Oven, the element of fire to attend to.

That what happens when I tried a whole bunch of new toppings. Didnt open pickled onions until i was in middle of topping, and was also surprised by the size but I just added what was there. Whole pizza turned out looking bad but the favor combination was great. Note to self: check out toppings prior beginning.

Coming along very nicely. Looks like the top concrete pad is nice and thick. I am sure it can take 10 ovens  :-D

Did you use a steel plate under top pad?

No. Built frame around outside, put 3/4" plywood inside the cinder block frame. Supported ply wood with 2x4s. Cut those supports to get them and plywood sheets out after cement set. if you have additional questions, feel free to ask.

Just replaced the floor of my oven with suputo tile. Expensive but I think will be worth it.

I'm guessing replacing the tiles was not a fun project.

Actually wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be after procrastinating for a long time.Original floor was floating, new floor is floating also. ;D ;D

I know when I replaced the floor in my Pizza Party oven the shipping costs were more than the product costs.

The shipping was substantial but I figured that I couldn't just drive over and pick it up 8)
