006 - Hearth pouring.

I built this platform out of some scrap 2x4's to make pouring the mixed concrete easier.
I still had to lift the 80lb bags into the mixer, but pouring was much easier.

010 - Hearth complete & cured.
Ready to start the dome!

Notes:
My target for cooking surface (oven floor) was ~44.75".
This meant that the structural hearth top was ~40.25" from the ground.
On top of the structural hearth top is 2" of ceramic fiber board (FB Board) and 2.5" oven floor bricks.

The dimensions of the structural hearth top at this point were 64" wide by 80" long.
My only comment on this (for my design), is that the 64" width was a little tight by time I installed the walls.
The ceramic fiber blanket insulation was snug against the wall.
Although I'm not sure if it's worth making it wider, since that would require a non-whole number of foundation cinder blocks across the width.

I have all of these files saved in softcopy/.PDF.
So if anyone needs a better copy of this file, or needs additional dimensions that I used, please e-mail me.

016a - Oven floor layout.
At this point I took an 45 degree grinding attachment for the Dremel & put a slight chamfer at the edge of every brick.
This was a good tip I found from others in the forum, which keeps the pizza peel from catching.
I have no issues w/ peels catching.
It was much easier to do now, as opposed to when the floor is installed.

018 - FB Board Template.
I used the B12T50A ceramic fiber board from skylinecomponents.com.

I spent a lot of time researching and found the refractory properties an excellent match to the FB Board.
I advocate supporting Forno Bravo as much as possible, but living on the east coast, shipping from FB was very pricey.

018a - Cutting ceramic fiber board to size.
Tablesaw or sawzall cut through the ceramic fiber board like butter.
Be sure to wear a respirator!
