  • Hello fellow Aussies, My 1st build

    Hi Guys,
    I'm currently locked down in Vic thanks to Covid and wan't to build my own brick pizza oven, I found this website after researching ovens online, I have decided that I will build the 36" pompeii as there are plans for it and I need plans , not sure if there are metric ones anywhere though, I'm in Carrum Downs Victoria and haven't bought anything for it yet, I have made a start though, I have bought some plate steel and welded a fire wood box together and cut a hole in my retaining wall for it to be recessed into, then in the next week or two a slab will be getting put down above it.
    Just thought I would say hi and say thanks for all the information that everyone has made available which will help me a great deal.
    Cheers,
    Paul

    I take it when you say "plans for it" you mean the eplans (free) from Forno Bravo. These are a dated but a good baseline. There have been several 1 meter ovens built but I do not know of any specific metric plans, you probably just need to use a Google standard to metric converter. Oasiscm is currently building his second oven and he is located in Werribee and he would be a good source for materials in your area. Also David S is our cast expert if you want to go this direction, he is from Townsville in Queensland, and Karangi Dude did a huge barrel oven and he is from Victoria or maybe it is NSW.

      Hi Russell,
      They are the eplans from Forno Bravo, I will be using them as a guide and will no doubt have my own modifications, I have looked at the Werribee post and will keep browsing through forums.

        Hi Paul, I am Tassie based and don't know all of the refractory suppliers in Vic.
        I purchased through Melbourne Firebrick Co. I received good service and happily recommend them as an option if your getting pricing comparisons.
        Cheers,

        Steady

          Hi Steady,
          I have been on the Melbourne Firebrick website and they are my favourite looking ovens, They are quite pricey too, did you buy an oven kit or just the bricks?

              I looked at buying a brick saw and following the free plans but couldn't find a second hand one on my area and decided I'm time poor anyway so went with the pre-cut kit.

              My build can be found here

              PS - I also love photo's
              Cheers,

                I will attach a few photos, so far I have bought some sheet steel cut to size, welded it up to make a fire wood storage box, painted it, then cut a hole into my retaining wall and recessed it in, removed dirt, removed garden tap and plants, boxed it out, put in some plastic and mesh, I bought the concrete and just got a local concreter to do it, thats it so far...... it turns out the concreter has built a heap of ovens and also has a mobile pizza oven business and gave me some tips which was great, 1st one being that I should reconsider my finished floor height as he thought it was too low, my finished height will now be 1100mm off the deck.
