Default Building a wood fired outdoor oven.

Here is a video of making a outdoor wood fired oven. I just finished it and have to wait until it dries and sets before I can try it.

Neat...

I'm imagining the smell of big thick warmed up ham slices and fresh bread...
Looking forward to "in use" video....
Yummm

Enjoy...

Excellent! Slick presentation, too.

If you weren't such a lazy cuss, you could get a real job and maybe afford a new lathe.

Now now don't be dissing on the old belt drive lathe. I know someone sitting in my chair that has one and really likes the older tool.

Actually I have a newer one. It is only about 60 years old and a even newer 2000s vintage. The 2000s vintage rarely gets used...

I'm really impressed with that old one and think it's great that you still use it. I wonder if your greatgrandkids will still be using the 2000 vintage one in 2103?

What is interesting about that old lathe is the fact that somewhere in its 112 year life someone added 4 inch blocks to the spindle head, tool post and tailstock and made it into a 24 inch swing lathe. Though I wouldn't want to try and accurately cut a 24 inch object it really works great for facing off large pipes.
