Pizza Oven #6

Work has been continuing on the pizza oven, despite the cold weather. Now that the base is finished, the actual oven is being built. The first level of bricks has been put in and the floor of the oven put in. Then the sides were reinforced and the door arch built. A sand mould has been made today – this will support the bricks above as the mortar dries and will then be scooped out. I think there are also some garden pots in there taking up space so it didn’t use up as much sand. As I type the next course of bricks is being laid around the mould but it is cold and getting dark and I’m too lazy to take pictures again today.

ETA: I didn’t know it at the time, but this day was Juneteenth. Juneteenth is the celebration of the abolition of slavery in the United States. It has been celebrated for 145 years and is a holiday in 36 US States. Now you know.



  1. It’s looking very sexy. I can’t wait until it’s functional.
