Considering an oven
I apologize if this has been discussed before. I'm on day two of actually being a member of the site. Anyway, where I am currently living we have a surplus of several hundred bricks. I have no idea what sort of quality they are, as I know very little about bricks. I imagine they are leftovers from the construction of the house itself, which means they have been sitting for probably 20-25 years. It occured to me that they might as well go toward something useful instead of taking up space in the garage, but after reading around a bit I am hesitant, and probably with good reason.
As of right now I don't have anything in particular in mind and I am not committed to any design or, in fact, actually making an oven. I am putting out a feeler to gauge whether or not I simply have the wrong materials for the job or if this might be a worthwhile venture. Stickly speaking I certainly don't need an oven, but I have a bit of free time and I want one so long as the cost is not greater than the pleasure of building and using it. I intend to do some more reading on the issue of materials, location and construction, but I am starting here.
Thanks. Rest assured that if I do build one I'll take plenty of pictures for everyone.
