Beginnings of my wood fired oven

Beginnings of my wood fired oven

Oven base and sub-floor built. Next a layer of concrete board, then 6″ of foamglass insulation and another layer of concrete board. From there Med-Duty firebrick for the hearth floor. The dome will be fireclay and sand. Insulation layer for dome vermiculite and fireclay. The oven will be under a roof so no need to further weather-proof at that point. It can be stucco’d for a more finished look and protection. The base can be discarded in the future and the sub-floor lifted and moved to a new spot if needed. I hope to purchase a trailer and move it there permanently. Will post more pics of the build as it happens. FYI, its going to take awhile as funds are available, for anyone who wishing to follow. Don’t loose hope and keep an eye out for updates.

 

I am also looking to make a tandori oven out of firebrick. Have seen alot in metal garbage cans. Makes them movable and the cover keeps things tidy when not in use. Think I will have a base with wheels to make it easier to roll around.
