Looking good. It supposed to be warm all week, finally. Looking forward to seeing the finished oven.

Structural dry lay of the vault and entry, as well as a detail of the vault construction. It is a sort of Timbrel construction, although I will build it over bucks with refractory cement.

Default Vault complete!

A long day, but the weather was great. I got started at 8, had the falsework ready by 10, and was laying brick soon after.

Default Timbrel construction

The construction is with split firebrick, cut lengthwise for a unit size of 1-5/8x2-1/4x9. Two layers of these then a coating of stucco to bring it up to a full 4" of solid masonry. I ran out of brick after the first layer, so I had to make a run and get another 36 firebrick. I was done with brick by 4, finished with cleanup by 5:30 and clean and holding a frosty beverage at 6:30...

Long Day, tomorrow maybe do the end and entry.

It is very clean and needs minimal tuckpointing. I will get the end and front arch on today (hopefully)

I did the back, but am out of firebrick again. Oh well, football day anyway.
I cut the brick so they are half in-half out to provide a better seal.

Edit-they are dry laid in the pic.

Default Inner arch

I only had an hour or two tonight.

Nothing like cutting and laying bricks by Christmas light....
