Rounded Oven Base

Some very clear photos of earth oven construction. Note the rounded base, made with blocks readily available at Big Box or small suppliers.
This link should show part 1 as well. Note the lava rocks used for insulating the base. In Guatemala we used something we called "puma," but I think that's how you say mountain lion in Spanish. Anyway, the material was volcanic in origin.
Here's a little bit of commentary from the person who built the oven. Breadnerd.

A rounded base made with unmortared bricks.
