    Make sure your bricks can handle the fire.

    Bread looks great Chimo and I bet it tastes a million dollars. I thought if I was going to make an oven I may as well make a decent one. The base will be 1.6 mtr square.
    We have no experience in building something like this, just a project the whole family can join in..The teenage grandkids have a few parties here so it will get plenty of use.
    At the moment we are working off two books trying to pick the best bits out of the two.
    I pray to God this oven turns out to be a ripper otherwise I may end up having to live in it.

    Yes Jakers from what I have read the clay bricks are fired at 1100 degrees and the oven should not go over 600 degrees C. I will put a temp gauge either in the shell or in the door. One book I am following is by Russell Jeavons who has commercial brick oven restraunts in Adelaide and he has only used clay fired house bricks in his.
    Also he only uses clay fired pavers on the floor of the oven. He does use perlite to insulate the dome but I cannot find out where you can a decent size bag of it.

    I have found where to get the Perlite. Bunnings sell it for $ 8.00 for a bag as big as a football then found out Hydroponic shops sell jumbo bags for $35.

    perlite1.jpgperlite2.jpg Just finished putting 4 inches of perlite and cement as a heat bank which should stop the top concrete slab from cracking and will reflect heat back into the oven
