Alan Scott & Me (giuseppe)

 All the services offered on this site, 
 would not have been possible without the
 generosity, kindness and guidance of the
 people in these pictures. I am forever 
 grateful and humbled by their support.

 Thank you Alan, John, Eileen and Mike            John Van Camp Carving Limestone

                    Alan Scott was a great teacher and I hope also a friend.
     He was so giving not only in teaching me about oven building but he was always happy
     to talk politics, ethics, philosophy... 
     Without his initial help and support there would be no "My Little Oven"
     Alan Scott died recently ....I think of him often and always smile..
     If you desire his DYI oven plans please stop by his web site at "Ovencrafters"
     Where his children, Lila and Nick carry on his work.

                   John Van Camp is an artist, master mason, entrepreneur and patriot.
   His support and guidance have been overwhelming.  He took me in off the street and 
   taught this crazy Yankee proper mason techniques and discipline....not to mention
   the importance of details and common sense.
   He has mentored many of my projects and is never.. it seems.. more than a phone call away.
   It is impossible for me to thank John enough for all he has shared with me.
   If you would like some beautiful limestone carvings visit John's web site 

                  Where would I be without my dear friends
                  Eileen and Mike Chandler.
   Somehow...someway.... Eileen thought it would be nice         
   to have a wood fired brick oven in her yard.                                Mike and Eileen
   Somehow... someway...she allowed me to build it!!
   Crafting that oven from slab to chimney top gave 
   me the start I needed.. Mike was my "foreman" and 
   support throughout the build.....he showed me how to 
   use many tools I was once clueless about...but mostly
   he encouraged me to carry on....even when I had no 
   idea what to do or how to do it?  Eileen continues to 
   share her sage advice and friendship and for that I'm
   most grateful.
   By the way, Mike happens to be a gifted furniture 
   maker, if you like to see some beautiful antique and 
   handcrafted pieces drop him a note at emlogcabin2@yahoo
   and ask him to send you some pics!

                 Finally, thank you to the best welder ever
