    Since Todd is coming from the East that would make it lop sided, we'll have to come from the west and even it out, ...two more won't make any difference since it sooo big, and for desert we can sample some of that Tahitian Vanilla ice cream you're gonna make.   [​IMG]

    Fantastic!!!  I have a bad case of pizza oven envy.

    Never saw it as a competition,had a plenty of judgement from my contractor friends who tell me if thats how you work sober maybe you should try drinking while you work[​IMG]. I had to call some of them in to dig me out of trouble at different stages. They shut up after I  feed them[​IMG]  I just thought you might like to see the inside of mine. Realising theres a dip in the floor ,& a skew in the back arch I thought Id show you something I did recently thats a neater job,at least from that angle! I also figured Gene would see the oven floor & get a grasp of what I was talking about in my PM to him.

    I quite sincerely see your oven as an example of what true masons build & how far the ovens have come in the last few years.I check this forum several times a day from my timezone just to see where your up to. I love what your doing.

    We finally got some more done on the oven. We got hit with a rain delay

    Here is the oven getting a coat of refractory cement on all the joints.

    This is the start of a 3 week cure


    This stuff is like a very thick glue and really sticky 


    Installing the insulation blanket - 4 layers on the actual oven shell 


    Chicken wire goes on next 


    Next we build up the sides so we can pour the pearlite / concrete insulation mix

    Here is a top view with the sides mostly done and ready to pour
