          Hi all, yes I'm planning on building a dome brick oven. Yesterday I started to design it using autocad. I figured I can get a real accurate brick count plus the angles I'll need to get a real tight fit.

            I CAD-built several ovens before I ever put mortar to brick. Welcome from another Jersey builder.

                  Funny.

                  I only use spreadsheets at work.

                  I wonder if Excel could do the job..........

                    Re: hi

                    A couple of hrs at my dining room table with a pencil, legal pad, ruler, and protractor. Then another hour or so laying out brick halves on my garage floor.
                    Overly simplistic to some, foolish to others for not utilizing modern technology; extremely gratifying to me......and not at all time consuming. I wish other aspects of the build had gone as quickly and smoothly.

                    Welcome and good luck!!!

                      I agree. Something about hands-on is so much better.

                        RT, simple but effective. Did you utilize some type of cardbord to help transfer this information onto the hearth?

                          I had 1/2 of a sheet of 1/4" luan plywood I wasn't using......came in handy for the layout and then again cut and screwed to 2x4 scraps for the only form I used - on the entry arch.
