Wow... I had completely forgotten that I did that. Yes, they are tapered (I tapered only one side) and I made the cuts with the HF 10".

I honestly can't remember if I made the cuts in one shot or had to flip the bricks over. It's been 3 years and my memory is getting really sketchy on the details

For anyone interested, I have reworked my construction time lapse video. The old Dean Martin music was starting to get on my nerves. You can only listen to "That's Amore" so many times before fatigue sets in...

I reorganized the photos a bit and produced it in HD.

The transition is simply a square brick box with an 8"x8" interior sitting on top of it. I cut the lower bricks in wedge shapes to conform to the arch. Easy.

Will it work?? Beats me! I've never built one of these before.

I have really enjoyed your photos etc of your build. Can you advise me if you have used non firebricks to build the exterior arch? Also is it considered necessary to have a thermal break between the interior and the exterior arch?Thanks Jonnymac

Hi Jonny,

Sorry I missed your post. The arch that is pictured above was built with the same firebricks as the dome. The color difference was due to the bricks being wet. The outer, decorative arch (not pictured above) was done with house bricks.

I didn't use thermal breaks anywhere. I had actually planned some but decided the amount of energy transfer wasn't worth the effort. My oven cooks like a champ and never disappoints.
