020 - Leveling sand on ceramic fiber board.
Ready for dome floor.
I opted for the dry sand/fireclay 1:1 mixture as a leveling agent.
I decided on this method in an effort to keep the ceramic fiber board from absorbing any moisture.

021 - Oven floor & first chain (half soldier) dry fit.
I used overlapping foil around the floor to keep any moisture from the mortar from contacting the FB board.
It worked pretty well, but it took a lot of effort to keep the FB board dry (it's not supposed to get wet).
If I did it over again, I probably would use the insulating concrete method.
On the other hand, people that use the insulated concrete hearth don't seem to like that the consistency it difficult to determine and they don't seem to know if they mixed it correctly or not.
So it's probably a pain in the butt either way you go.
My only experience is w/ the FB board though.
I couldn't modify the plans & switch to an insulated concrete layer at this point since the FB board is 2.5" thick & the insulating concrete is 4+" thick, so my floor height would have been off (I would recommend measuring your elbow height within ~1-2" & designing down from there if it's not too late, this will give you the most comfortable height when using the oven tools for cooking).

Don't make the same mistake I did by using permanent marker on the firebrick.
After a good amount of usage, the permanent marker burns off, so probably a moot point either way.

022 - Oven floor & first chain (half soldier) dry fit.
I designed the vent landing with a flared opening.
This was much more work for arch angles down the road, but well worth it in my opinion for the larger opening for better oven access.

024 - Mortaring first chain (half soldier).
You can see the overlapping tin foil around the floor to keep any moisture from the mortar from contacting the FB board.
