You do find some interesting projects Jack. Good luck with it. I'll have a tandoori chicken please, absolutely delicious. Approximately what do you think that oven would weigh?

Nice one, Jack. It's not unlike how you might build a primitive potter's kiln, except it would need to be bigger and to have a flue.

Any invites to the first baking? Looks like a good job - let it dry really well as there will be dampness within the clay even when it feels dry. Then only heat it very slowly. Small cracks are inevitable and mend able.
