Building a Wood-fired Masonry Oven

Construction of the foundation continued even amid fall rains and the resulting mud.

At the right you can see the form blocks set in place to receive framing for a poured cantilever that will tie the whole oven to the bakery building structure itself.

Blocks being laid up; the open area under the oven will be the ash dump from the hearth (more pictures later will show this)
