The D130 PreCut Brick Oven Kit is tailor-made for commercial applications, or for those who really want a BIG oven in their backyard. With an internal diameter of 1300mm, the D130 PreCut Kit is a great choice if you’re opening a wood fired pizzeria, or just want to be able to cook an entire lamb with a couple of trays of vegetables at the same time.
This oven is different from the two smaller PreCut igloo kits, because the shape of the dome is not hemispheric. Due to the large width of the dome, we use an elliptical shape with steep sides and a relatively flat ceiling. This keeps the ceiling at the optimal height, perfect for cooking commercial quantities of pizza, but still ideal for roasting meat and baking bread.
As with all of our PreCut Kits, we do as much as we possibly can for you. All of the bricks come cut and ground to size, we provide you with templates, CNC machined formwork, a special Trammel Tool, fibreglass dome form and much, much more. All you need to do is assemble the kit like a big Lego set (see the PreCut Kits page for more details).
There are a couple of other key differences in this oven design;
- As these ovens are commonly used in commercial applications, we cut the majority of the floor tiles to fit inside the walls, meaning they can be pulled out and replaced in the future if need be.
- Instead of a fixed-radius Trammel Tool (which can only be used to create a hemisphere) the kit comes with a custom made Elliptical Trammel Tool, which can be fully adjusted to lay a smooth elliptical curve. A CNC cut elliptical dome profile template is also provided.
- To ensure the D130 Oven is incredibly well insulated, it has two layers of Calcium Silicate Board to insulate beneath the floor and three layers of Ceramic Fibre Blanket to cover the Oven Dome with. One of the biggest costs in a Wood Fired restaurant is fuel, so we have increased the amount of insulation used in the D130 to minimise heat transfer out of the oven.
- The D130 Kit has two layers of 50mm fire brick floor tiles. This is to give the D130 an excessive amount of thermal mass in the oven floor so that it will remain hot, especially during busy periods.
We’ve created a set of detailed instructions to guide you through the process of building your D130 PreCut Brick Oven Kit. We want you to have a great time building it, so we’ve put a lot of effort into them to make the project as enjoyable as possible.
There are two sets of instructions; a detailed written guide and a video series to accompany it. You will need both – the written instructions give you details that can’t be covered in the videos, and the videos teach you things that can’t be covered in writing.
To help you build a stand suitable to support our Brick Oven Kit, we’ve put together a detailed guide to walk you through the process. Our suggestion is to build stand walls using bricks, interlocking concrete blocks, or cinder blocks which are filled with concrete and reinforcing steel.
A suspended slab of reinforced concrete is then formed up and poured to create the benchtop to support the oven. The stand must be built on reinforced concrete foundations – if you’re building on soft ground you may need to consult a builder to ensure your foundations are adequate.
If your installation involves anything more complex than the basic setup that we provide in the kit, you must engage a suitably qualified plumber to supply and install the flue for you. Your local fireplace store will have several professionals they can recommend. Your oven can reach extreme temperatures, to the point where the flue glows orange.
This is extremely important. If you install your own flue system and your oven somehow causes a catastrophic fire, your home insurance cover may be null and void. Put this in the same category as working with high voltage electricity – the risks outweigh the rewards. Don’t risk it, use a licensed plumber.
If you want one of our Wood Fired Ovens professionally installed we have a network of Oven Builders that we can put you in touch with. We call these artisans ‘Flamesmiths’ – experts in building our Wood Fired Oven Kits.

As an engineer, I love to draw using CAD (Computer Aided Design). If you share my love for this wonder of the computer age that we find ourselves in, you might enjoy some of the files linked below. For simplicity I have exported a version of each model in Rhino, Sketchup and STEP, which is a format that can be imported into almost every CAD program out there.
The drawings are 3D models bundled into ZIP files; each ZIP file contains three versions of the drawing in the file types listed above.
There are also some very handy PDF files linked below that we hope you will find useful.
