biting on just 1 little particle of sand is enough to hurt my teeth and kill my appetite.
Still, this does teach you a lot about outdoor ovens and will contribute to your build if you do plan on building an outdoor fire wood oven.

I have yet to build my oven, but I shall be following the plans and dimensions carefully and I have faith in it turning out well.
It didn't leave me thinking "I could have written better"
It shows you the reasons why and lets you decide, whether to follow the wonderful plans or take the information and do your own thing
