Thanks for the great photos and play by play on the build. I am getting ready to pour my hearth tomorrow and it was very beneficial to see your technique. I was thinking of using wood wedges to support the dome bricks, partially mortar, and then remove them. I like the idea of the brick wedges and leaving them in place and mortaring around them.

I will let you know how it goes and share pics.

Thanks again.

Glad they are helping! Yes, the brick wedges worked well. Just cut off the excess when you're finished - Dave used an angle-grinder. Can't wait to see how you get on.

I have more detail described in our thread under Pompeii Oven Construction.
