  • Clay sand ratio for cob oven

    Hi all
    I can't seem to find a sand to clay ration for a cob oven.

    I have some clay recommended for WFO.s from a local clay producer.

    I have access to sharp masons sand. Planning a 40 inch wide dome oven.

    I poured the supporting base yesterday.

    It will have to sit for a while as it cool outside.

    Fire brick is bought for the floor, and flue liner.

    Thanks all

    Don't forget to insulate between the supporting slab and the oven floor.
    I think the sand, clay proportion is about 50/50 and usually chopped straw is added to the mix to add reinforcing.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
