  • 37 Pompeii in SW ontario

    Well, Ive decided to take the plunge and build a Pizza oven. This site has been invaluable and giving me ideas and direction. Ive settled on a 37 Pompeii design with a full arched opening and a walled enclosure. I actually started the project last year so Im a little behind in my posts. I went with foam glass Option to help keep thing dry

      Very nice start. Good choice with the foam glass. I already had my floor laid with 2" of insulating board. I'm always concerned with it getting wet.

      Are you currently able to work on your dome, considering the season?

        I used thermo-12 gold. Came in boards 2x12x36. The dome is actually already done. I just need to organize my photos and get them up.
        Im in the middle of a deep freeze right now with more snow in forecast but I want to be ready for spring

          I priced the thermal 12 gold. I think that may be what I purchase. It is pretty reasonably priced at $5.49 a square foot not bad since everything else I saw was ridiculously priced. How many boards did you buy for your oven?

            I ended up using 5 thermo 12 boards for my insulation. Then laid out my cooking floor. I installed a thermal break between oven and vent chamber using a left over piece of 1/4 insulation paper. Ive got a 1/4 SS tube that will rest on top if the insulation paper and be about 1/8 below the cooking floor.

              After building an IT I began the first courses. It truly is an indispensable tool. I built an compound adjustable angle device to make precise cuts but it flopped and was inconsistent. Ended picking up a 10 compound saw at a metal recycling plant for $60 which is proving to be able to give me decent results

                Closed the arch which took some fiddling back and forth. Im learning to be more patient but at the cost of a few hairs

                      A lot of custom cuts to compensate for the droop from the arch. Couldnt correct all of it but for the most part I was able to get my upper chains level

                          I didnt leave enough room for mortar on my plug and had to hit it pretty hard to get it in. The fit on the plug was so tight in fact it chipped out two small sections on the adjacent chain. I was able mortar them back on but you can still see the damage. Bummer!!
                          This was as far as I was able to get before it was too cold and damp in the fall of 2018. All wrapped up in tarps and waiting for spring

                              Same thing happened to me. Plug fit fine dry but with mortar it was a little tight. Used what I thought was a light tap and was so sad to see the chips/flakes that broke loose. I just patched them with mortar and moved on. One of them has fallen out but oven still cooks great and nobody complained of having the chunk of mortar in their food, so it must have fallen during a firing.
