What you need:

I won’t write a long story, as pictures will tell you more than I can explain . Just look at the pictures and get some ideas. Search the web for other construction plans and pick the stuff you like most.
The material you use depends where you live, what is available there and on the price.
I’m still working to finish the oven and I will update this post while I’m progressing.
