Hi guys,
Not saying that ooni oven is bad in any terms.(I'm actually considering buying it) What I'm trying to say is that after looking at it, its just metal sheets, nothing too special of a design that people won't be able to make, what's stopping people from making their own ooni oven such as DIY, and would it be worthy?
Anyone of you made some DIY pizza oven, that was not too expensive?

Thanks!

People buy things because they don't have the time, skill, facilities or inclination to do it themselves.
You can make something of similar design for yourself if you want.
e.g. I built a Pompeii style wood fired brick oven.
I'm pretty happy with it, but second time around was for someone else, and was better.

A lot of people would ask themselves
  • Can I make something that works as well?
  • Can I make something that looks as good?
  • Do I have the place/space/workshop to make it in?
  • Do I have the time?
  • Do I have the right tools?
  • Can I get the right materials?
  • Won't it be just as easy, and possibly no more expensive, to just buy one?

Here you go! This goes back a few years, many here remember the early days of trying to create just what your talking about! I'm sure some still have them stuffed in a corner someplace. The Blackstone buried it and now others are burying the BS!!! Good Luck!!!

If I was going to go to the trouble of making my own oven, I'd make something a whole lot better than an Ooni.

That's a weird thing to say. Why don't people make everything themselves? Because it takes know-how, tools, materials, time, etc. For a $200 oven... It's not 1850 pioneers time.

I went as far as to get the metal, have it bent and had to back off due to surgery and then another surgery     

The body was about the shape I needed then all stopped! 

I gave the metal to a friend of mine that needed it for other projects so I built a pellet grill instead  ;D     

But I did find a OONI 2 at a sale for less than 100 bucks so I got it just to play with :chef:
