    wow, that's the effort of a weekend? Impressive! It took me...oh...about five months to get that far. ;-) You'll be cooking in no time!

                    Your oven is looking great and going together very fast! Good work.

                        Don't fire it up too soon. Keep all the portland cement based concrete parts damp for at least a week. Two weeks would be better. In three weeks it will reach most of its potential strength.
