You can build a tandoor right on the ground, in thisunder the base case, you need to dig a hole in the shape of a circle with a diameter of 120-130 cm. At the bottom fall asleep sand (layer of 15-20 cm), and begin to spread the brick pit.


Base under the tandoor - a sand cushion is placed on the bottom of the base area vogrug also is filled with sand. At the bottom of the grille is conveniently positioned beneath the coals

As a solution, you can use masonryready mix furnace. It consists of the plasticizer, red clay and quartz. Laying can be both horizontal and vertical, in the first case, the oven will retain heat longer, the second is more economical - bricks will need much less.

Vertical clutch

Tandoor, lined with vertical masonry chimney to remove gases. Material for making such a furnace consumes less

The horizontal masonry

Brick tandoor, laid horizontal masonry - thickness of the wall more, so long as it keeps the heat inside. In any tandoor bottom hole should be located for the flue gases

To visualize the future dimensions of the furnace, at the beginning you can do poryadovkoy - masonry without mortar. With brick working grinder with a cutting diamond wheel ceramics.


Poryadovkoy done to visualize how it will look your tandoor. After such calculations, you can start working with the solution. Tandoor may be constructed on the ground or on the basis of a brick

The pattern of bricks - the basis for the formation of the circle. Do not spare the solution at a laying, and use the level to check the horizontal position.

Building pattern

Eastern craftsmen used a similar pattern for the manufacture of tandoor. Laying bricks according to a pattern, the stove will gradually acquire a rounded tapered shape up

Tandoor narrowed upwards - this is done,so that the heat is retained inside. To achieve this effect, the bottom layer bricks need to cut, when laying form will resemble arch. After the masonry is ready, clean the oven interior space of the solution should be. The dried clay we use to fill the outside seams. The inner surface is also coated with clay, which is mixed with melkonarublennoy grass.

When the oven is dry, its heat their firstpaper, and then the firing temperature rises. This is the easiest way to make a tandoor, but if you want to refine, design can be coated with clay. In the east, the furnace is decorated with mosaic tiles, sandstone, ceramics.
