Default moving up

It's satisfying seeing the dome go up, isn't it? Looking good so far.

For some reason with the -la at the end of your name I imagined a smaller person than the one in your saw image!

Wonder why you wrapped your oven floor with a cargo strap? I won't hold my breath waiting for an explanation this time

Default very timely

strong work, the cargo strap is a nice bit of ingenuity, I would imagine you have now a perfectly level cooking surface. Keep sending progress photos, I'm interested to see your BBQ progress especially.

Thumbs up Gaps get bigger toward the top, but that's OK.

(M) Looks great! Don't be discouraged when you start to close the dome as the gaps between bricks tend to become wider.

Your work looks "As Good As It Gets"

Congratulations,and

Ciao,

Marcel

Trapezoidal cuts in that last ring help close the gaps, looks great. Is your vent and chimney going to be swept back over the oven? Apparently that's the traditional Italian design, although I've not see anyone try it here.
