Oven for outdoor area made of logs – incl. cocktails
Wanted to send some pictures of my oven. I glued cedar planks to the block with spacers, let the glue dry, put in backer rod in the gaps and used log home chinking to give it some charm.
At the end of the project I hired a ceramic artist to make a chimney pot out of stoneware clay. She used 50 pounds of clay but during the curing process this pot developed a few cracks and it leaks a little down the chimney when it rains hard. It has the year 2012 in the front which lends it some charm!
Found a roofer that had some leftover slate and hired him to install it otherwise I did all the other work.
Awesome pizza! Made some sourdough bread a few times when I stayed up late (it takes hours to cool down enough). All in all, very worthwhile project!
Oh, in the pictures, the oven is outside of the outdoor area made of logs, just on the other side. We sit by the fire and have a few cocktails while waiting for the oven to warm. Take care all!
Pic of soffit is clear vertical grain Fir, (prized in the Pacific Northwest) as well as rafter tails, truss, and top plate.
Bench is Western Red Cedar that I had cut on my property years ago and is the same wood that I used on the outside of the block on the oven. Just to show the finish. I also made a table with the same planks, they are over 5cm = 2″ thick.
Funny thing is, I had exactly enough planking left to cover the outside of the oven and the long ones, when cut in half, were like 1-1/4″ = 32 mm short but I used them anyhow.
It’s not a piano! It was meant to be, HA. I hope I resized the pics enough, let me know if not. Thank you.
