What Is Cob Anyway??

Maybe, you're saying...cob oven, what the heck is a cob oven?  Oven, I understand but cob...what is cob anyway?

Told you you'd get your hands dirty.

Cob has been around for centuries as a building material and is used to build everything from houses to benches; and, yes, ovens.  Cob is a simple, natural material that is easy to work with and dries to a hard, durable finish.  The best thing about cob is that it's just a mixture of clay, straw and sand mixed and packed together by hand.  There are very few tools needed and the ingredients are all natural.

    BTW, check the URL's for the links at the right. They do not work in their current format. To view, remove the second http// from the URL, then the pages will load fine.
