  • Ok done. next step render and finish the base. Not sure when i will get back to it. Next 5 months are really hectic.

    The centre row of Hebel on the base supports the middle of the oven hearth. Before table top is placed i will run and angle iron lintel across the openings to support the table/hearth.

    The table base will be 75mm hebel panel/75mm insulation tiles/25mm calsil board/75mm x 600 x 300 fire brick tiles

    • Looking nice Colin. I am sure build two will be a work of art too.

      • Hi Colin,
        As Hebel is so water absorbent it would be prudent to seal the top of the Hebel supporting slab to prevent rising damp. Get the Hebel Power Panel, it has 4mm reinforcing rods cast into the centre.
        Looking forward to your new build.

        Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

        • Hi David

          Yes, onto it. I have 4 power panels sitting on my front porch. picked up for $40 each bargain. The whole base will be rendered and sealed. Cant seal the tops of blocks, as the adhesive has to bond to the panels and blocks to create a solid monolithic structure. I did lay a damp course between concrete and the first course of Hebel. Pretty much same as first oven just bigger.

          Cheers Colin
