Anyone out there currently building an oven?

If you are and want to share what you learned or commiserate I'm at the insulation stage of an Alan Scott oven.

What say the crowd?

I thought about it and I would love to see other people do it so won't be so scared of it. So please post about it!

Will do! Just bough some 2" ceramic blanket and covered the top and then added vermiculite and vermicrete to fill in the gaps and cover it. Currently curing before stucco.

Still have to build a couple of doors. I'll make an album and post my build :)

It's not incredibly hard, but there are some interesting parts that require thinking through. But I'll share my lessons learned gladly.

Now i have to learn how to bake in this monster - and how many loaves to put in :p
