Bread Oven Construction

Today my goal was to fill my base with gravel and to cement the top to make it complete base.
Because of hot weather I had to cut my day short on oven building will have to get at it tomorrow. I did start drawing out my outdoor kitchen which will connect to my oven so I spend the remainder of the day doing that.

Here is the finished base with the concrete slab poured the slab is about 2" the rest is filled with gravel and compacted with water. Since it will not carry any load I did not reinforce it, the whole use of it is plainly so I could store wood and it would be leveled with deck.
