My name is Will Bode. I recently started this website with the goal of; creating an online space for oven and bread enthusiasts to meet and share their knowledge and experience, to offer my own expertise, to build a free resource library on oven building and use, and to grow the community by getting more people interested in this ancient and amazing skill-base.
I have been fascinated with bread baking since I was a kid. I think what won me over was that magical transformation from a not-so-edible dough to something I basically lived on. I can still remember being around 8 or 9 at my Aunt's house and getting to mix and shape my first loaf by hand. We cut our initials into the loaf, I think it was at this moment a seed was planted that eventually grew into the passion it is today! You can learn more about me on the About page.
