River Rocks on the oven’s outside
Hello Rado and others.
Here goes photos of my masterpiece – as mentioned before – took longer than I expected to construct due to the collecting / building the rock exterior but it is great, well worth the effort.
I had a good time living at the Gap – Did a owner builder house just after I was married – the people were average – not a posh area as it is now – traffic was low – my granny (99yrs old) says the cars are unbearable now.
I am glad I live in north Queensland – it is quiet and laid back compared to Brisbane.
I have had several great pizzas and I use the camp oven to cook stews etc. Makes great garlic bread. I spent 20 years on a remote cattle station so I enjoy the camp oven cooking again. We sit in the swinging chair my kids bought and watch the fire after cooking is done having a few wines.
The steel part is an old steam boiler used years ago to run a steam driven timber mill – I just cut it to fit over the oven after it was finished. Carted all the rocks from a creek and hill site where I go for our evening walk. Only purchased the bricks and mortar and that’s it.
Thanks for the DVDs and your great web site.
Townsville, Qld., Australia
(* I will send you a photo when I finish the oven – with a roof and all that, sitting etc. (it will take awhile at my pace ) the oven will be made from fire bricks and the external walls will be built from river rock I am already slowly collecting in my area.)
