Hey everybuggy -
all are welcome, but the main topic here is project pictures, report on progress, and yes, announce pizza-parties by anyone who has built their own version of Ernie's double-chamber oven.

We just finished a great example in Skagit Valley, Washington; looking forward to final updates in a week or two as our hosts remove the sand mold and start firing up their outdoor kitchen.

For pictures of older projects, check out our online albums at http://picasaweb.google.com/eawisner and http://www.picasaweb.google.com/eritter.
The Frog Oven is there, and there may also be some good pictures of the Ujima Center Snail, and some Cobville ovens.

Yours,
Erica W

I retrofit a chimney onto my "normal" cob oven. Just doing that made a huge difference in how clean it burns even without the burn door yet.

Browsing the forums for the first time tonight. I've been thinking our first wood fired would be a stove as we don't have as much need for heat down here in AZ. I showed my fiance the pic of the wonderful frog oven and she loved it but commented, "Of course, ours would have to look like a dragon." So glad we kept scrolling! Wonderful and inspiring work!

I bought the plans the other day and can't wait for warmer weather to begin construction.

Hey Ben, did you build your oven yet?  How did it go?
