Hello Man7sell

How goes the build? I hope you are enjoying it. It got more difficult (for me) near the dome closure.

Got one more rung done this weekend. It's the transition to the entrance that is driving me nuts (short drive miss daisy).
When I get this right the remaining rungs should go easier

Finally FINALLY The last key stone added, Last few interior holidays grouted. Time to burn.

OK so I don't know if this is the correct way to cure the oven, but I'm now on the third burn, each one a little hotter. I'm doing this before the insolation and final outer shell is built. Wanted to be able to fix anything that goes wrong. Anyway here it is.

I am using a laser thermometer like this. Found it on Amazon. FB sells one too.

Robin Hood - I would recommend you check out the the free Pompei oven plans available on the FB web site. They describes several methods for placing the upper courses - foam template, sand, exercise ball. Most us some variation on an "Indispensable Tool" (IT for short). there is a good link on the subject here: http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f28/...idea-2573.html (Hendo's dome gauge -- nice idea)
Best of luck. Consider starting a thread for your build and posting pictures.

Man7Sell Once the oven is dry and you apply your insulation, Are planning an Igloo? or a "House"? You might consider re-enforcing the vertical walls of your oven entry to counter the down/outward force of the chimney: I use cinder block, Brianventura use a steel bracket.

I used the IT for most of the rounds.




But the last 4 steep ones I used a round piece of ply blocked up to the correct height. Getting the ply out when it was too large for the entrance hole meant having a crescent piece cut out (Imagine a moon with a few day past full moon )
