Hi Jay!

Thanks so much! The oven is just two coats of stucco and then a top coat of stucco using quikcrete terra-cotta cement coloring. I went with this vs. paint because down the line if I wanted to put brick veneer over it I wouldn’t need to strip the paint. The wood was done with a shou sugi ban treatment (basically torching the wood, removing the carbon with a wire brush and then sanding with 220grit and then linseed oil. I am debating tiling over the brick with some turquoise calavera tile.


BEAUTIFUL OVEN! Please be sure to send pictures of the entire project when she’s all done… this is definately a Photo Gallery “Page 1” oven!

Excellent Job!

Congratulations and thanks for sharing those photos Jay! Wondering if your wood compartment door is a “floater” or a slider?

The toned stucco looks so clean and attractive. And you’ve got the food thing going for sure.

Way to go!

It’s a floater. Painted it with chalkboard paint and let the kids go nuts with it.


Thanks for sharing some of your foods beside pizza. The misses and i are always looking for news ideas!

Hey Jay -

When you get a second… can you upload all your oven images to:


I’m working hard on the new Website & Photo Gallery 2.0 and want to make sure your oven is on there :slight_smile:


I love this look and I think I am going to do this or the charcoal coloring for my oven. Hopefully getting to the ceramic blanket this weekend. Does this help with the sealing at all or would you still need to seal to weatherproof?
