Alan's brick oven, part 3

These pictures are actually about a month old, but here you go. This is us pouring the top slab of concrete onto the bottom half of the oven.

Alan lowered the height of the edge since you last saw this, so the slab will be a little thinner than we thought at first.

Half way done

Most of the way in

All done! And made nice and smooth, too.

A week later it was strong enough to stand on.

We have a large pile of boxes in our living room right now, which have arrived this week, containing all the metalwork items for the chimney and heat resistant blankets and materials for the dome. We have our eyes on a brick supplier and need to check them out. Next task; building the dome!
