    Yes, 10:1 vermicrete, no lathe.

    Hi David, thanks for posting these photos. Question regarding insulation of the flue gallery area: I know you cast the flue gallery as a separate piece. When assembling your ovens, do you insulate around the outside of the flue gallery? Looks like maybe a layer of vermicrete was applied; if so, was that directly onto the casting (no lath)?

    I am struggling with how to finish that part of my enclosure. I plan to stucco mostly, but I need to understand how exactly to bring the outer shell up to that front face. I'm thinking to bring the cement board flush with that face, and then render over it with stucco or tile. But that would seem to imply adding lath to the front face, meaning I have to drill holes into the casted piece of art!
    Am I on or off track here?
    Yes, It's polished concrete. The stones are flattish and placed into the mould which is backfilled then polished after demoulding and curing. There are so many ways to decorate the front. Here's a really easy one (pic) using slate, I was working on yesterday. I cast 8 wire ties into the casting to assist tying into the outer shell (look carefully and you can see two on the right hand side).

    Texman: sorry I missed your question. I use Calderys Castflo 1450 ARG which is a proprietary calcium aluminate castable.

    Thanks Russell,

    I missed that post. I went back to view it again. I'm betting those large rocks were pre-split with the flat faces to the form in an upside down pour. Irregardless how it was done, it's a great looking job .

    G'day Davids
    New oven looks great and it's a shame the old oven had to go. But being a rental people expect them to go faster in every gear I suppose
    regards dave

    Thanks Russell, Skiing in Australia is around 2000 km south, poor quality snow and very expensive. We prefer to go to Japan during our unpleasantly hot summer, much cheaper, fantastic snow and only a 7 hr flight north.

    Yes I drilled a hole after completing the oven, through the outer shell, insulation and inner dome casting. I use some stainless steel pipe as a protective sheath for the thermometer probe. That's not me closest to the camera, that's my son in law. I'm the bloke guarding the beer.
