Default Wood fired brick oven build

Here are some progression shots of what I've been building the past few weekends.
It's a pompeii brick pizza oven which can be used for practically everything else from smoking low and slow to grilling, and anything in between taking advantage of its retained, residual heat after the initial firing. Interior floor space is 34" in diameter.
I'm currently curing the oven with a series of low and slow fires using charcoal briquette and will move onto burning wood and higher temps next week.
The one photo of the burn was my very first fire, just buring some scrap cardboard.
I still need to add stack height to the chimney to meet code and finish shaping and stuccoing the exterior.

Thanks for looking,
George

did you use Forna Bravo plans or is this of your own devising? Also how much did all the materials cost? I have been kicking around the idea of making a Cob Oven simply because i can get the whole thing built for about $30 but the brick ovens seem to be much easier to construct and that might be worth the extra money.

Hi....I did go over their plans just to get some basic info but the majority of my build plans and ideas came from looking at dozens of other people's oven build threads.
So far this project has cost me about $1,000 and I pretty much have on hand the rest of the materials to finish this project. The most expensive components of the buid were the ceramic insulation boards and blankets, then the cost of firebricks.

That is awesome!! Did you build the stand as well? Looks like maybe you used concrete forms to build it? I want one!

Beautiful work, you know your masonry it looks like. I see wood-fired chicken soon in your future.
