Pizza Oven, Part Two: The Oven

If doing the prep wasn’t enough of a chore… building the actual oven, was a mathematical, mind bending, brick laying challenge.   But gratifying none the less.  The bigger the challenge, the larger the reward.  We worked hard, and yielded great results.

They have been making pizza ovens for centuries… so what makes it so hard?  As someone who saw what we were doing… “it isn’t a kit?” No.  How do you know where they go… each row is custom.. and each piece individual.  Not only is it not a kit.. we have no plans.  If we weren’t worried about doing a quality job, with good clean joints, and sharp lines… it would have been an easier task.  But we took our time to assure we could ‘productionize’ each step, making the joints as small as possible, and thermal dynamics (and heat transfer) as uniform and even as we could to make an efficient, sound, and beautiful oven.

Each day is an adventure… and with it’s own reward.

For those who have done it… welcome us to the club… it was a daunting challenge, one we feel proud and stronger for having achieved.  Wow.  What an endeavor!
