This wood-fired, outdoor masonry stove can be used four ways: for baking, grilling, cooking and smoking. Whatever your cooking needs, this outdoor oven can do it, thanks to interchangeable grill grates and griddle surfaces. If you want to grill steaks or fish, use the grill grate. If you want to bake bread, slide on the steel griddle, stack some bricks on top to retain heat and add the door to hold in the heat. If you want to use the stove top, just slide the metal plate (or griddle) over the top of the firebox. The oven has a thick insulation layer of lightweight perlite/cement between the firebox and surrounding concrete block, and we included a removable door.

You can build the outdoor oven in stages, a few hours at a time. Another key design element is the firebox size — not too small, not too large, but just right. Our outdoor oven requires a fire in the firebox for about 45 minutes to one hour to reach a baking temperature of 450 to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. DIY Woodworking Projects | Free Woodworking Resource.

Chemical Free Toy Cleaning? Yes, Please! - Hello Splendid. I’m fairly certain that my mother will love me slightly less after reading this, but one clear childhood memory of mine is the sound and smell of Lysol constantly being sprayed in our home.

I’m one of four children and whenever one of us was sick (which was all the time) you could hear her spraying all the phones and doorknobs in the house with Lysol. You could pick up a phone a day later and it still reeked of that hospital antiseptic chemical smell and burned your nose as you breathed it in. In her defense and because I would like to be invited to Thanksgiving dinner this year, it was the 80’s and most people just didn’t know any better.

Today, the thought of spraying stuff like that in my home is almost inconceivable. Yes, times have definitely changed! Especially if you’re wise paranoid about the implications of exposing children to unnecessary toxins like I am. A few years back, a friend introduced me to cleaning with vinegar you find on the shelves in big box stores. Creativity - Home : BrightSide — Inspiration. Creativity. Wonder.
