Wood Burning stoves/ovens

Morning. I have just joined the forum and already written in the intro bit so thought i'd get on with my first thread. Hopefully this is the right place to post. Please tell me if not.
I'm currently designing a few projects for wood burning stoves and ovens, i got the idea from Jamies website and seeing him on channel 4 using one in his garden. But most of these are either very expensive, made of clay and very big. There must be another way of having the charm and usage of wood fired cooking but harnessing it another way plus also making it cheap.
I work at a bespoke design/manufacturing company that mostly makes food machinery, amongst lots of other things. This gives me an insight into what the industry is doing on a large scale and small.
I have a whole workshop of very skilled welders/fabricators to hand and numerous steels to work with. So i have decided to design a few wood burning ovens and stoves that people can build themselves using my designs.
I won't post my web address in fear of this being deleted but i have my first design on there for people to check out, its a small portable wood burning stove.
My next project is a mild steel wood burning oven built in sections to be bolted together. I did my research and it seemed a lot of these cast iron/mild steel units were built for the praries of America during the cowboy era, although the era was short lived these designs were simple to build and very efficient due to the lack of fuel in the desert. They still cooked all the meals using them and they were ultra portable for the wagons. I'm basing some of my ideas from these designs.
I'll keep you updated on my designs and if anyone wants more info please ask.

Re: Wood Burning stoves/ovens

Apparently I cannot leave any links to help you, but in my opinion the north Italian wood burning stoves (similar to aga) are the best for cooking. maybe you can have a look at the designs, just google the words cucina economica a legna and look at the pictures!

Ciao and good luck with your project!

Re: Wood Burning stoves/ovens

Thankyou Alessandra and Grand_Ma
I'll take a look at both of them.

Been working on the dome shaped oven in solidworks lately so should hopefully have some drawings ready soon for you to have a look at.

Re: Wood Burning stoves/ovens

I'm really interested in getting a dome 60 but want to bake bread as well as cook pizza. Has anyone had any success baking bread in the 60 we love making sourdough breads that develop a really great crust if cooked at a higher temperature than our ordinary domestic oven can reach.
