As soon as I'd finished (sort of) the paving around Forno del Gallo, our geese selected the platform as an ideal launching pad... (it's not ideal though because they leave a lot of 'spent fuel'!)
Forno_del_gallo Snaps from the 'progress' of my Pompeii wood-fired brick oven construction. Dome building has progressed from the solitary twin arches for door and flue to a completed dome... I've already found some hairline cracks in the mortar I used to patch some internal flakey joint but since I've already covered the outside with insulation and render, I can't check if they also appear on the outside of the dome shell. Got some good advice on the Forno Bravo forum on how to fix any cracks...Trial by fire has begun!
