      Re: Oven Build In Central Alabama

      Has anyone used this type of opening on there oven?
      You link to two different ovens. The second one seems to be a conventional plan where the vent goes straight up from the entry. The first one is the sort of low dome commercial oven where the vent curves back from the entry to the center point of the enclosure. I think they do this with some sort of welded steel cowling, which is possible in a home build, but remember you want insulation between your dome and the vent curve.

      This won't be possible in builds that go past the building inspector under masonry fireplace code: You are only allowed two bends in the flue, not more than thirty degrees.

        I found it today

        Tony's Pizza Napoletana- Welcome

        Came from Matt's Wood Fired Oven Thread

        http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/8/ma...html#post65998

        I know this one looks utility, but I like the metal look. Something like this in Hammered Copper or Ornamental Steel would be nice.

        Maybe line the inside with insulating fire brick to keep it from being so hot....

        Gives a nice wide hearth. But I would do fire brick out front under that vent so I could do the Tuscan grill on the hearth...

          Good Morning

          I have placed a model up on 3D Wharehouse of a Pompeii Oven if anyone is interested.

          Got my Inswool Blankets (3) yesterday. Still Can't find Vermiculite. I may just use the IFB 2300 Bricks. Expensive but they should be strong and support the dome.

          Has anyone had issue with the Ceramic Boards Settling from the weight and causing cracks?

            Only one member had a problem with that, a board that wasn't water resistant: I think it was Kaowool. None of the boards will give you a problem if you keep them dry, which you want to do anyway.

              For Vermiculite go to Boxes, Shipping Boxes, Shipping Supplies, Packaging Materials, Cardboard Boxes - ULINE

                These guys have a number of supplier suggestions.

                  OK Cross eyed from reading - need some help.

                  I found CVDukes method for mixing vermicrete.

                  http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f28/...html#post29501

                  I am going to make perlcrete (Can't find anyone with Vermiculite) but I did find perlite for $10.00 a bag.

                  I need to know how much ya'll used pouring the insulating layer. I plan on having the insulating layer a little larger than my 42" inch oven, say 60x60 plus the hearth area. I think one bag of portland will be good, but how many 4 cubic foot bags of Perlite will I need?

                      Re: Oven Build In Central Alabama

                      Thanks - Now I can use that !!!

                      Next question. I picked up one bag of portland cement. Will this be enough for 3 4cfu bags of Percrete?

                      I got my bricks also and 2 55lb bags of fire clay.

                      But it won't quit raining. I decide to park under a shed last night and good thing I did since it rained. I had to store all the perlite, clay and portland in my shop until I can make my percrete forms and pour.

                      I am on vaca the next week so I hope to get some work done...

                                I thought that was you in your sketch! Very nice plan. You're building a whole outside hang out temple with the wfo being the center of attention. If your build comes close to your plan it'll be rediculously awesome.
