Please find finer details for my initial question. The Canadian magazine Harrowsmith Country Life did publish an article on Adobe Bake-Oven (outdoor; August 2004). In material listed, it indicates that about 20 litres (Metric system) of clay for walls and dome would be needed; also 10 litres of sand and 1/2 bale of hay.
It is noted that the surface of the oven is 32 by 46 inches.
I have tried to convert litres to pound, but I haven't found a web converter that would give me this result in pound. Can you help?
