    One of the things I dislike about this house is that whoever remodeled it a while back removed the fireplace. Putting one back in would probably be more trouble than it's worth, so I was thinking of building a wood stove outside. I love things like bread and pizza cooked in a wood oven, and have a nice tandoori pot I could use as well. Plus it will be nice on those inevitable five or so days out of the year we are without power because some idiot ran either their car or tractor into a power pole.

    Has anyone else built something like this? If so, any suggestions?

    I built a wood-fired kiln for a friend of mine a few years back, I'm hoping a wood oven will be easier, or at least not harder.
