For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

    I've been using an old 2x4 to move the coals around, and truth be told - it works just fine. But I have been reading the "Art of Wood Fired Cooking" and it talks about an ash hook to move coals, and I got curious.

    I thought I might weld something up for use in my oven - but thought there may be designs here on the forum that I could use as a starter.

    Anyone build/use such a tool?

    I use this. I bent it a tad beyond vertical so I can rake against the back wall.

      FB has sold an ash rake which is a variant of both.

        I bought a pooper scooper from Petco. Replaced the handle with a longer piece of EMT pipe - works greet.

          Made from 3 mm aluminum so it will not damage the hearth brick, but strong enough to push a log around. Sorry it ain't pretty but it works. One thing I discovered about making tools is the handles start off to long and all of mine have been shortened a couple ins at a time till they feel right
