Two fans on the cooling unit pull air in at the bottom, and blow it out the top on either end....real good circulation.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think he's installing someone elses work?

Nothing wrong with that.

I thought I would bring this full circle back to adobe construction. I built a earthen oven from the clay in my back yard. Clay over a sand form, then a layer of insulation, topped with a layer of finish plaster.

Glad you like it. I was very pleased with the results. I studied and used the methods described in "Build Your Own Earth Oven" by Kiko Denzer.

I have been able to turn out some to die for pizza. So far the bread has been ok, but there is a lot to learn when it comes to bread in this type of oven. It's a work in progress.

Yes, these cabinets are not of my design or construction. I've been in the business for 32 years, and have never worked with finer cabinetry than that of my friend, David Kuznitz.

From his small shop here in the eastern Sierra, David creates works that he calls cabinetry, but alas, they are works of art. The man is a true genius....and far more of an imaginative craftsman than I will ever be.

That being said, installing the works he creates is no easy task, and the tolerances we work within are to the 64th of an inch. Everything is scribed in. No detail is left undone.

This current project is the second one I am doing for him down there...I completed the other over the past 3 months. That billionaire clients are asking David to do their cabinetry all the way down in the southland, is testament to his abilities.

That he asks me to install his work is a priviledge and an honor....and affirms in me that I am just a tick above nailbender status.

EDIT: Elvis Leg....that is a really cool oven you have there! I have seen these constructed down in Ecuador, for firing bricks. About 10 feet tall and at least that in diameter. I hope you get your bread dialed in...sounds scrumptious!!!! Good on ya!!!

Don't get me wrong, Cragman, though it's easy to do.

I've installed hundreds of high end boxes and have only recently tooled up and stuck it out there on the fab end.

The main cabinet maker that I've installed for over the years wouldn't even deliver. Shop only. He made square sh#t, the rest was your problem.

A sixty forth might be exagerating a bit, but I agree, a tight scribe without trashing someone elses art is a great feeling.

Are you flying visually?

You have to be more specific...
Of course I am flying "visually", that's the only way I would be able to control it. If you are asking if I am piloting via line of sight (LOS) and looking at the craft, then no. I am flying FPV (1st person view) and I am using a live video feed...I sit in a chair looking at a 10inch monitor and my airplanes can fly way beyond line of sight, like in excess of 10 miles and up to 10,000 feet... You may know them by another name, drones... You can also use video goggles but I prefer the screen because I wear glasses... check out www.parkflysac.com for the local FPV scene. With enough research and know-how anyone can build one...
