I will try my first post again as it hasn't been cleared by admin/got lost.

I am hoping to tap into the wisdom available here and post my build as it progresses. I am based in New Zealand and want to whip up a basic pompeii style oven on a limited budget.

I am going to base it on a wood stand set on pavers. I can post some photos once this has been approved from admin.

I do have about 30 fire brick tiles that were surplus from a commercial wood fired pizza oven build in a nearby city that I plan to use for my oven floor. I have also salvaged some old orange clay bricks that came from a chimney on a 1920's house. These will be used for the dome, arches and chimney.

I have lots of photos and more to say but want to make sure this post makes it to the forum first.
