Plan on them being larger than you plan... e.g 3/8" is the goal, but be aware that you may need to cut down your keystone when you get there. Just the nature of things in my experience

You can make a square opening from brick if it all works and fits, just support it temporally with some timber until it has all set.

brickie, that looks really simple, will that hold up the oven? Are the cuts on angle is what gives it strength?

I think I would have to remove some of my dome to make room for a full size brick or my opening would only be 8.5" tall? Could I use a half brick with the same strength?

The arch will hold heaps of weight if you bond the brickwork over the top properly, you need some bearing on the underneath bricks, more is better of course.

The angle gives it the strength, you could use basically any angle, except 90 degrees.
Actually thats not true about the 90 degrees as thats what I did in my oven entry and its still up.


Edit:-
Here are the next two courses done for you, I assume that you will taking it up as a chimney, or the start of a chimney.

Remote bricklaying........gotta love it.....
