Hope everything is well. Thanks for posting the link to the Fornobravo oven plans
in the Members' Lounge.
I was getting ready to build my bake oven and could not decide on Alan Scott or Peter Moore's design. I emailed Peter about his design and he told me to call him. He gave me some good tips on oven building. He's a good guy.
I built a 42 inch round Forno from their plans. I'm glad I did not use too much mass. Today I'm cooking pizza's in it for the first time. Please find photo attached. I still have to enclose the dome but at least I can cook in it.
The soapstone keystone is from Bev's Tess fireplace. Nobody wanted the pieces, so I took them. The oven arch is going to look exactly like the wood storage arch.
