I am a landscape gardener and i have previously built two wood fired ovens but that was 10 years or more ago. Now i have been asked to build another one but i cant find any pre cast domes for sale! There are several company's selling pre cast insulated domes but, i just cant see the point of that at all and my customer most definitely wants a high mass dome with outside insulation. Does anyone know where i can but a pre cast high mass dome in the Uk? Thanks Fox.
Thanks, I did not find that one, I will have to contact them for more details as i cant see how many components it is made from? It still surprises me how few are available and not one is a true dome shape or has a six’’ chimney!
Edit... I found the info i needed and in fact the main dome is in two parts and the chimney exit is 8’’, quite a bit cheaper than the Victas but it is impossible to know if it is better value From just the pictures.
Hi Barry, this one looks ok www.woodovenwarehouse.co.uk/product/amalfi-wood-burning-oven/#mouth-arch but it is impossible to tell just from the photos . The Victas one only has a 4 inch chimney outlet . I built my own mold a few years back and managed to produce 6 domes but the last one got stuck and i had to break my mold to get it out . However I have been asked to build another one so i have not decided if i will repaire the mold or buy a ready made one. I have started the base work so i will have to make a decision soon. My own design, take apart mold, made a true dome shape from 3 rings and a one piece arch and cost around £300 to make each one in materials including burn out fibres and steel needles.
