Looks awesome Ferdy!

Finally got a computer that works...  

I can't stress enough to let your build cure for at least 30-45 days before putting any fire in it.  Then start with small fires and work up over a couple weeks, before you run full temp.

I finished the brickwork the first week of April. I put the cladding around the oven brickwork two weeks later. I then started firing it around the end of April, starting with a small newspaper fire, then a small twig fire a few days later, and every few days after that a progressively larger fire. The first pizza (and full firing) was mid-May. So, I probably was a little quick with the fire, but no cracks or leaks.

I cannot tell you all how appreciative I am for all of your suggestions. It's turning out to be a fine project which I have enjoyed immensely. It wouldn't have turned out that way without your suggestions.

"We poured a concrete counter. We glued fiberglass I dilation to the edge of the form to give a textured edge. Once we pulled the forms, we brushed the insulation off with wire brushes, and what little did not come off, we burned off with a torch."

What is "fiberglass I dilation"? I love your countertops! I am planning to build an outdoor kitchen and had not yet found what I want as a countertop - I think I now have!!!

Sorry. It should read “fiberglass insulation”. Fat fingers + autocorrect.

Oh sure, I understand. Thanks. So I'm guessing you had a wooden frame/form for the countertop and you simply lined the inside of the form with a strip of insulation? I really like the end result!
