If anyone wants to know, it takes 46 beers to build a WFO!
Are y'all on some kind of beer rations? Beautiful oven and lighting is superb. Congrats on job well done!

No beer rations but if you have too many the bricks end up crooked!

The 46 beers are only those that were consumed at the end of a building day. I was good to have a cold beer while clearing up after a sucessful day's building, or if things didn't go well it was good to have several.

The difference between a successful person and others is not the lack of strength, nor the lack of knowledge… but rather, the lack of will power.

John,

It's almost finished but not just yet...

I still have to oil the deck, I need to a minor bit of sealing and I also want to ass another coat of waterproof on the dome. The plan is to finish it all of this weekend. Hopefully the rain will stay away.

Paul

Hi Paul,
I'm now at chain number 6 and wondered how much you trimmed off the bricks, it proving to be a challenge to keep the gaps to a minimum on the inside.

Russ,

Below is a photo of my construction once I started getting that high. Chain 6 was still 1/2 bricks & chain 7 was when I went to 1/3 of a brick.

I cut my bricks the maximum angle that my saw could do from the vertical before the blade hit the edge of the slot (I hope that that make sense?)

You will see from the photo that there is still a larger mortar gap at the bottom.

Paul

Thanks for that Paul. I figured from your pictures that you must have made the brick 80mm at the bottom and 60mm at the top, thus getting 3 from a full brick. I have the same AR brick saw and didn't think to tilt the blade just a little. I've been using a block in order to set the brick on an angle.

Regards,
Russ
