We just completed another successful earth oven workshop in Waterville, Maine. Thanks to everyone who participated.

After firing the tiny oven for a couple of hours, the bottom of the plywood base was only warm to the touch. Nevertheless, if you're building a more substantial oven, wood should not be used for a base.
Please see last couple of posts concerning potential fire hazards with wooden bases.
