General pointsOnce the domed oven is finished and dry, we can start to construct the housing around it.
|We chose to surround the oven with a firebrick housing, jointed using fire cement made with proportion of chamotte (refractory sand). |
the smoke throat section in front of the door, which forms the bottom of the chimney, must also be ordered separately from Fayol.
|Firebricks were also used to make a ledge in front of the oven.|
|Full height, about 10 cm or 5 inches above the top of the hearth.|
|Just a paper fire for some flames and smoke to see how it works.|
|Start of filling around oven with chamotte.|
