I'm in Southern Japan in a traditional farm house. The house sits on risen stilts with a breezeway underneath. It is also old and requires multiple repairs to floor/foundation and so I have an easy way of installing a substantial wood burning oven right on the soil while in the repair process. I am also putting together a cafe and would like to offer wood fired breads/pizzas and meats. I'm looking for info on how to build an oven big enough to support this endeavor. There will likely be a lot of baguette-like loaves which are just short of 24" so I need a longer chamber but would like to incorporate aspects of rocket system into it. I would likely need to bake a few loaves at a time and have a controllable side chamber if I was slow roasting meats or warming other things(imagine a 600 F bread chamber and a another with meat at 175 F). I can basically imagine how to do it, but would love to work through it with some other experienced people.

Thanks!!

Brendan Edwards : Not much joy here ! While we are definitely at a cross roads with all roads pointing forward, You are asking for someone who is an expert

in Two different though related crafts !

1st thing, even though this next link for you to click on comes From You-Tube- please be aware that there is a great deal of Crap Videos out there in U-Tube land

and anything yo0u see should be regarded with a high degree of suspicion ! O.K., Link below :

Really the only think that I have to add is pay attention to ergonomics and how easy or hard it will be to ''work with'' your build ! Plan ahead and make baby steps-

Your earliest steps should be done outdoors !

We have sections related to where in the world you are, and a section to introduce yourself, and one to announce new Projects ! A couple of new Thread posted on

these forums may help you find a near neighbor with Cob, and cob oven experience Good luck, Good hunting, For the Crafts ! Big AL

Hey Brendan, I have been procrastinating on sharing the details of my cook stove for a while now, with grand plans of creating something more, uh, well, more everything. But....life is getting in the way and I'm eager to share, so I just yesterday put up an album of how I did mine. There may be some applicable ideas for your build. Good luck!
