Okay, I have no idea what I was thinking building this cob oven right at the busiest time of the year, but I am so glad I did! It looks awesome! So yesterday, Nate and Kathleen harvested, I prepped for the farm table dinner and Linda did real people work. After all our "work" was done we went after the oven.
We are making the cob mixture; sand, clay and straw.
Leveling the platform and laying our oven tiles.
Making the sand mold for our oven
Putting the cob on. The walls are about 5-6 inches thick by time we are finished. We had to make more trips for sand and clay than we thought!
But we did it!Tomorrow we will dig the sand out and have our first fire in it! Hope it doesn't fall apart!
