Great compound cuts on the firebrick, looks like you are using a HF saw! Where/How did you learn to do that? Love the large floor tiles that came with the kit! I am definitely jealous! Great Job!

Aegis,
It is a Harbor Freight saw that I'm using. Awhile back I did tile with my brother in-law so I have logged many hours on a tile saw. Some of the cuts are difficult with the 10" blade. You have to turn over some pieces to get the full cut all the way through.

Here are some more photos of the vent area that I'm hoping to finish in the next week.

Looking very nice, but you are going to want to buttress that entry arch before you go much further.

Tscarborough,

Yes, I was considering metal brackets on each side. If you have a suggestion on what might be a better option I would appreciate the advice.

That might not be the most elegant solution, but it would work. What is the design to finish the front of your oven?

I was thinking of housing the dome with metal studs and finishing with stone and a metal roof. That is the plan but it is not definite. At this point I'm still not 100% on what it will look like in the end, other than it will be a house structure. Along with the oven I'm also going to install countertops on both sides for an outdoor kitchen. When I went to get a permit for sewer and electrical the building department approved my plans as long as I don't exceed 6' at the ridge for the oven structure. Well, my plan was to have it at 6.5' and that is why I'm not clear on final yet.
