Well to be safe, I've installed an adjustable steel building support post and a large steel disk on the top of the post (It was laying around the property so perfect and free). The post will not really get in the way of the wood storage.

Since the perimeter of the oven is the only thing that touches the hearth, it is the only place were there is ANY weight, other than the brick of the floor (and the perimeter of the hearth slab will have weight if there is an enclosure).

Yes true, I was thinking of an igloo which has very little mass outside the inner dome.

Made a version of the indispensable tool (IT) for the dome build. Used hardware from Home Depot and stuff I had laying around. Works great and is fully adjustable. Up to the third course now. At this point it is time to build the entranceway to allow the intersection of the dome to tie in with the entrance.

Each brick gets cut 3 ways to radius the dome and create to dome profile.



Here's the IT made from a castor wheel I had and a piece of threaded rod. (Never throw anything away right?).





OK, don't get a photo of me everyday, usually the one taking the photos.

Did you use 5000psi concrete or something equivalent? My hearth is about 3 1/2 thick. But I know very little about how much weight concrete can hold. I do have rebar in mine. Quite a bit. Your cinderblock structure looks great! I like the concrete pad underneath. Will make your area very clean looking.

No idea what the strength rating of the concrete is. Rebar should support the load.

The concrete pad underneath was the work of my next door neighbor out there. He was really good at it. Later we will add mosaic tile on it to match whatever design we come up with for the oven

Looks like good progress. Are you planning a spherical dome or something lower?
