A Fine Looking Oven

A fine looking oven built by Hall Kern. The oven can be moved around because wheels have been attached to the legs. The interior of the oven is fire brick with mud and insulation on the outside. Note the tool rack on the side.

Although Hall is not a mason (and I'm not either), he used a simple technique of working with a template that he moved along after he finished a course of bricks so that he could begin a new course. The partially completed oven shown above is one that I've had under construction for the past few weeks.
