Take alfresco dining to the next level and build your own clay oven
Sand and clay are the oldest building materials known to man and dry really well in direct sunlight.
Once the oven is built it will be a focal point for all outside celebrations. The internal temperature of a wood oven can reach up to 400 °C which cooks a pizza in seconds, however the insulating qualities of clay means you can warm your hands on the outside of your oven as your pizza cooks. Perfect for a summers night!
