    Well they finally got started on installing my new wood fired pizza oven. Here are a few progress pics of the base of the unit. They will pour the 4" table section tomorrow and will be assembling the oven on the weekend - can't wait to get this going (I have to wait 4 weeks for it to cure )  

    Day 1 




    Day 2 

    We were gone most of the day so this is all I got - the cavity at the front is for wood storage - the top will be a solid 4" table to set the oven on

    cover that rebar with a min of 2 inches of mud and dont add any water that is not needed.  Use a set accelerator to bang it in to geat and cover it with plastic and some old blankets and you will have 90% strength in 3 days.  Just some FYI

    looks good so far

    make sure they put some more reinforcing on that top so it holds the weight and doesnt crack

    Thanks guys. The guy who is building it is my neighbor and a mason for 30+ years. He is really going the extra mile for me to make sure it comes out nice. He showed me pics of 20 he has built and they all look quite good.

    What a great project.  Are you going to use it for breads too, or strictly pizza?

    The first couple pics looked like an old incinerator from the 50's.  Nobody but us old farts will remember those. Of course most of those were made from brick.

    I bet that will be a great unit when you get it done, Gary!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Thanks Brian and  Rick 

    There is already a 3x3 wire screen under the rebar with more being tied in tomorrow and the top will be 4" thick. Today they filled all the verticals not just the ones with rebar. 30 bags worth

    I definitely want to make a pizza oven but I think I will be going with an earth oven since I can't make anything quite this big--by myself and I don't get a lot of help. I think yours will be lovely and look forward to seeing it when it is all done.
