Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena


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.

  • A New Tool: The Dome Claw

    The Dome Claw is a homemade, inexpensive, easy-to-fabricate tool that unobtrusively supports bricks while building a bread oven dome.

    Itís explained in the following Youtube video:

    Awesome, thanks for sharing. I will try this out this weekend.

      Stem, the claw works magnificently. Easy to put in place and easy to remove. I made mine from pieces of 1Ē X 1/8Ē aluminum. My next batch will be from steel - it is more forgiving if you need to rebrand to adjust angles. I broke some by trying to ďadjustĒ the angle on them. Thanks again

        Julison, Iím glad the claw worked so well for you. Thank you for taking the time to comment. It was fun to hear that it helped. Enjoy your oven. Iíve finished the curing process on mine, and weíre going to make our first WFO pizza this weekend.

          Sten, thank you for the idea. I had more success with steel from Simpson Strong Ties. I found them to have a bit of "give" with a spring effect. They came in handy on my seventh course. I'm making more as I go after the more vertical courses this weekend.

            What a fantastic idea. Very much appreciate the help.

              This is a wonderful idea! I'm going to try it on my build!

                Clever idea. I thought about a bunch of different schemes to hold bricks in place, but I just kept adding rings to the dome and waiting for a problem but it never happened. Even the near vertical bricks at the very top stuck in place after being held with the IT for as long as it took to butter the next brick. I used Heatstop 50 mortar, perhaps it is stickier.

                    I live in Ottawa Ontario. I've been confining houses here since I was 14 and there's one thing I never comprehended. About each team in Ottawa outlines a house with a cutting apparatus. From the main day on location, I never have gotten that or knew about it. Is this okay to use a chainsaw? and How do I sharpen a chainsaw blade? check a site but still confused.
