Introduction: WOOD OVEN

First, my language is Spanish, and the translator of google translate it to English, so I will ask forgiveness for the faults of spelling and narrative ..

• Oven Door • burner door • Thermometer • 1 meter stainless steel tube • hood in stainless steel shot • Kit throw mud fireplace with stainless,

Polystyrene sheets 14
1 jar of glue for polystyrene 1 cubic meter of mixture (0, 1 and 2) to make concrete 8 bags of gravel Number 2 Rods for concrete 14 bloquillos of 50x20x20 Reflectarios 310 bricks 12 standard cement bags 14 bags of cement reflectario Two bags argila (expanded clay) Sal (where needed) Crystals (recycling) 1 bloquillo 20x20x20 Fiberglass wool Rack fiberglass wool Wired to hold the wool 2 sacks mortar waterproof 7 square meters of stone 1 door aluminum 60x40 3 square meters of white tile and some loose color. Flashings for tile, 3 bags of 3 kilos Dish planter for cap

There are many tips on the construction of the dome, with a cord with radio Dome, with the guidance of a knot, which I found very interesting, although placing bricks above is very difficult, for the nonsense that "the law of gravity" and to have little experience in the field of masonry, so I decided to make a mold with extruded polystyrene plates, of 125x60x05 cm. I bought a package, which came 13 units, using virtually all, ah, I bought also a pot of glue for polystyrene. (polystyrene € 1.95 unit, glue about 6 €).

Step 1:

1º- To make the dome.
I put together two sheets and a nail and a rope, draw a radius of 45cm, then with a jigsaw with a saw for clean cuts (one that is small and thin), we cut the halves of the circle, then with the I hit the glue

Step 2:

2.- with a sheet of very thin wood, I made a template of a quarter of the circumference, then just as,
I scored 4 in polystyrene plates and cut.

I have cut with a radius of 40 cm, (note, I did not complete curvature, and that from the base allow about 15 cms (three blocks) straight, then continue the curvature) because if the cut 45 could only put two together, the other two come out the edges 5 cm, with the following photos will understand

Subsequently I have been cutting plates with the same dimensions, although I have been adjusted according to the depth of the dome, placing pieces, until I no longer fit more

Step 3:

The gaps filled them with newspaper, then use foam
polyurethane, and with a very sharp knife removed the excess, and so I ended mold dome

Step 4:

The oven I've done, I've built with burner, thus following
the above procedure, I made a template, and cut several pieces, and the remains of the cuts was sticking up having mold inside thereof. (NOTE: mold burner was using measurements reflectarlo brick 22x11x5, RENOTA: when buying these bricks were of 20x10x5, RERENOTA: Well I did another template, but with conglomerate .... That will be it has to do ... Upon the molds, I've gotten several things, with the dome, the oven floor does not get dirty while we put the bricks, Laying Bricks around was easy and quick, and disposal mold was simple.

Step 5:

Leveraging an earthen pit had, empty land, to reach the
hard earth. The hole measures 140 x 120 cm Then I filled it with 8 sacks of gravel # 2

Then I have to thank uncivilized neighbor, who left with the dumpsters, which would be the cutting of a closet, and picked it up, (have to use it all), I did the formwork, about 25 cm high

Taking advantage of galvanized steel tubes, which had no use, I made the rack then pour the concrete.

Step 6:

Two days lift the first row of blocks, to the base of the burner

Step 7:

I prepared the base, bobadillas, wood for formwork and concrete grid ....
I placed the pan from the oven, which have positioned and dialed .... Thus it is possible to match the burner oven., at the back

Step 8:

I laid the basis for the burner, and filled the joints ....

Step 9:

I focused pan from the burner and put the bricks around ...

Step 10:

I placed under the burner ...
The pins to anchor the door should be lifted, bend and rotate with pliers or tongs, and then make a recess in the brick so that it introduced ....

I cut foam core, of the same dimensions as the interior of doorframe burner, which served me as a support bricks placed on top ...

Step 11:

Then lift two rows of blocks to fill around the burner

Step 12:

With expanded, some sand and refractory cement argila, made concrete
I filled the base around the stove, getting lighter weight plus be an excellent heat insulation

Step 13:

I made a wooden box measures fireplace burner

Step 14:

I prepared the formwork for the oven, with the corresponding grid,
and I filled concrete

Step 15:

To split bricks in half, I dialed the radial, then
supported upside down on a wood with a small blow of mace, are parties.

Step 16:

In the concrete base, I placed the pan from the oven, I focused to suit
off the burner, and placed bricks until they found the initial form ...

Step 17:

Then I filled the inside with salt on the glass and then put the bricks to the furnace base, the
I placed bricks on salt, just go over it, without any cement, going over the edge, I placed with refractory cement. I left joints between the bricks, then stuffed with refractory.

Step 18:

Then I put the pan from the oven, place the door thereof, and
I started laying the bricks around, building mold, placement is faster and easier than if we do it with a rope guiding with knots.

Step 19:

Here you can see the rear, with the rear door template is which holds the bricks while the cement dries

Here the copper tube placement is observed for the pyrometer

Step 20:

Must leave the gap between the rear door and the mold, for a chimney placement

Step 21:

We ended up putting the last brick, brick fireplace adjusting,
to be completely covered, then I gave a layer of mortar reflectario entire dome

Step 22:

Then I placed the chimney draft, and around a square bloquillo, Cutting the front in two halves, for enjacar shot of the same

Step 23:

after I gave a good coat of cement reflectario all around

Step 24:

Once the mortar has dried, at its base made holes with a drill
of a size smaller than I placed screws, which are the cables will be subjected to the fiberglass wool I installed to further isolate oven.

Once placed glass wool, I placed a metal mesh, which is the grip that will serve the reflective layer mortar is given subsequently., All secured with wire

Step 25:

When it is secure, you are given a coat of mortar reflectario

Step 26:

Then as I bought two bags of white waterproof mortar, the use and gave three layers, then at the bottom I lined the walls with stones
I bought a 50x60 aluminum door, and placed in the lower hole

I filled the joints of the stones and install the oven doors and burner

Step 27:

The next step was to line the oven with pieces of white tile, with a touch of color

Step 28:

I bought a stainless steel tube and head, but as I do not want to leave fixed, grabbed a plate of a planter and also covered it with pieces of tile, to place it on the base of the chimney to keep out the water.

Step 29:

I filled the gaps between the pieces-tiled with flashing red

Step 30:

And as a final point, because clean everything, tiles, stone, doors, flooring ... ..
When not in use the cap on the vent is placed,. when you are going to use a stainless steel stand with a swivel head

    estan conectados, el horno es el de arriba, el de abajo es la hornilla.
    funcionan de la siguiente manera: en el horno de arriba quemamos leña (cuanta mas llama mejor) se trata que la llama caliente la piedra.
    cuando ya esta caliente (minimo unas dos horas), empujamos las brasas al fondo y caen en la hornilla, consiguiendo de esta manera dos cosas:
    la primera que el horno este limpio sin brasas, podemos cocinar varios platos a la vez.
    segundo: que la hornilla mantendra o elevara el calor si hiciera falta echandole leña por la puerta de abajo (la de la hornilla)

    The Purpose of glass and salt it The thermal insulation
    The glass is very good insulator of heat, Por Eso place it beneath the furnace bricks , THEN Surface To be as flat as possible finished filling with salt ( note that it will place on the oven floor )
    so then, when we burn wood in the oven, the heat does not lose beneath, and will remain much more

    Hi! Looks nice. What is the purpose of broken glass and salt? (step 17)

    are connected, the oven is above, below the burner.
    operate as follows: in the oven burn up wood (but how much better flame) is the flame hot stone.
    when already hot (minimum two hours), push the coals to the bottom and fall into the burner, thereby achieving two things:
    the first that the oven is clean without coals, we can cook multiple dishes at once.
    second, that the burner will maintain or raise the heat if necessary echandole burning through the door below (Burner)

    I like to know how much did it cost to build this wooden oven? With all the material you use to make it. The wooden oven had to cost a small fortunate to make this. I guess it is worth the price to have such a beautiful wooden oven. I also have seen a lot of wooden ovens, but this is the best I have seen that looks great! Good Job, Matthew!

    cost me about 1300 €, but be aware that these may be € 1300, there are 500 € of iron gates, the pyrometer, mud fireplace, stainless steel tube and rotating head so .... according to the material which you can go cheaper.
    in pdf there on the web, if you open are the prices, but good where I live which is an island, prices are more expensive than on the mainland.
    likewise are different from where you live your
