I thought this was the neatest project. The article tells the story of TH, baker and cook, who wanted to build a wood-fired oven in her back yard. She decided to make a traditional earth oven.
She and her family first built a brick foundation, and an inner wall made out of Cobb,which is a blend of clay, sand and straw. After that they applied a separate layer of sand. Finally, they covered the oven with bricks, also made out of Cobb.
The final oven looks like a brick-covered igloo. This isn’t a complete tutorial but it gives you an idea of how an earth oven should be built. The article also includes references to additional sources on building earth ovens.
