Finishing the pizza oven

I did it. Today my little helper (hinderer?) and I cut open the oven and removed the sand from the inside of the cob oven. It wasn't drying out, but I am hoping that now it can dry from two sides. We also lit a small fire inside just to hurry things along.

Small opening to scoop the sand out

Sure is dark inside there...

Ah, the interior lit up
The first fire- just a small one to start it drying.

Now I just have to clean up that doorway, and make a nice little door to hold the heat inside as it bakes. I think I will get an old sponge and polish it up a bit more as well. Ummm.... can't wait for the pizza!
