Work of art with natural stones
Here are a couple of images from the time of baking bread using rye flour mix. The darker the crust at the end of baking the better! As you can see, from the stage before the stone structure was completed, first photo, I’ve already done many pizzas, breads, muffins, flat naan, a whole turkey, casseroles and pies at that time. On thanksgiving I think we had almost everything in there cooking at the same time. It’s awesome!
I went over your newest 3g mto design plans time and again at the difficult parts of construction, and even though I didn’t have the same exact design, it was very helpful, so thanks a bunch for the documentation you did and the service you provide. I couldn’t have done it without you. I’ve sent a few other people your way. I’ll be sure to send you a pic when I’m totally finished. Building the dry-stone vault over the oven and building the front arch with a chimney incorporated inside was difficult, or rather challenging, but I’m sure not insurmountable.
As I mentioned before, your set of complete progress pictures (photo sequence) helped me visualize what I had to do to build my oven, even though nothing was exactly the same. Thanks again by the way Rado. It is a remarkable work in progress, on the whole still evolving project, extremely satisfying in several aspects – after my busy work or at some days off – I enjoy just going out there to the building area, take a chisel with a hammer into hands and shape a stone with a few hits to fit it into a place. I wonder where it’ll end. It cannot get any nicer so to speak, for the whole family benefits from using the oven and just sitting around it while the food is being cooked.
So I’m long finished with the oven, but actually covering ground around the structure is still in progress. One of the progress images show how I’ve laid the springer stones for the arches to cover the oven. I’ll send you the complete pics when I get this area done in full. What do you think so far?
