I’m settled on building the Mattone Barile Grande oven, and now going over the instructions in preparation. I ran into a confusing sequence of instructions at steps 18 through 22.
Step 18 is an instruction to build up the first 5 rows of firebrick on the left side, then to stop.
Steps 19-20 are building up the right side, all the way to the chimney. The diagram at step 20 shows the first 5 rows built up on the left, as instructed.
Step 21 is cutting two firebricks to shape, and Step 22 is installing those two firebricks in front of the chimney mold.
The Step 22 diagram shows BOTH sides built all the way up.
My question is: when did THAT happen?
Is there an instruction missing in the manual? What was the purpose of partially constructing the left side before moving to the right?
Thanks for any clarifications you can offer. I’m really looking forward to this project!
