looking fantastic, you have put a lot of hard work into that dome and it will be well worth it in the end. I also had no idea what my oven was going to look like when I finished it. I just kept building it and it sort of took on a life of its own and designed itself. Keep up the good work, happy building.

I have closed the dome!!! I also finished the chimney and I'm ready to install the duratech anchor for the vent pipe. I'm going to let the oven dry for a few days before I start the fire. I also plan to have concrete around the soldier course for support.

That is a great looking oven. Can't wait to see how you finish it.

Thank you Heidi.
I have enjoyed building the oven and now I'm close to cooking in my own wood fired oven! It's a good feeling.

Brian

Brian, it is looking sweet - you will be proud everytime you look up and see that dome closure clear when firing.

Thanks Cheesesteak,

Here are some more photos. To support the soldier course I poured concrete around them. It's just a little piece of mind since I have a tall soldier course and I have read that they do need to be reinforced so they don't get forced outward.
