Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

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.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • My "First Rodeo" at Blacksmithing

    I signed up for a two day blacksmithing class at a local farm (Fulmer's Farm and homestead). They are real big into the old time ways. The blacksmith that taught the class is Lyle Wynn. Lyle was a runnerup on the History Channel's Forged in fire. That is good enough credentials for me. I made a few trinkets and tools as well as a steak turner. There will soon be a masonry forge on the place, and I can envision a lot of oven and BBQ tools in the future .

    I like the pig-tail turner - old dogs can learn new tricks, eh?

            I picked up a 55 lb 'anvil" last year. However, after the class I took, I will have to refer to it from now on as an AVO (anvil shaped object) . It is made of cast iron, not hardened steel . It will do for some things, but not for the heavy striking. I do have some railroad iron (most recently used as fire dogs). That, I will use for the heavy work until I can get a 100 to 150 lb anvil. And, until I can complete the forge, the AVO looks pretty good as a decoration .
