Last course done! The last 2 courses were laid freehand as my indispensible tool became useless at that angle.

I will cap this 6.5" inner diameter opening with 3 large pieces, adding no additional height to the dome.
My other option was to lay another tight course and drop a keystone but I decided not to do that as that would have added another 1/2" to the dome height which I don't want. Besides, I didn't want to spend another few hours tapering each tiny piece, piece by piece to make them fit.

Thank you!

Today I carved 3 full bricks to make a large plug.

Checking for fit and the dome will be capped tonight!

Thanks for looking,
George

I mortared the plug. The dome has been capped.

Now I will concentrate my efforts on the landing/vent assembly.

Thanks guys!

I need to now think about how I'm going to design the vent area. I need to make it as wide and as deep as possible. I don't want a smokey environment there as that corner is in a nook and not in an open area, and next to a door leading into the kitchen.

I will need lots of napkins for this. Back to the coffee shop....

Oh my lord! I have missed a lot of your build. Great job on the oven, George! All that research paid off and resulted in a record build. Amazing brick work. Very clean and precise. What can I say but get on that vent ASAP so you can start cooking =D

Your oven looks to be up against an exterior wall of your house. Am I correct? How high will the chimney have to go to clear the roof?
