I made good use of the angle grinder and cut the supports. I think I will be coming in close to 12 inches.


If the weather cooperates, I will close the opening this weekend.

made a little more progress last night before the sky opened up.

I am trying to remain patient.

I can almost taste the pizza now.

You really want to close that gap. Without the course being complete, you could knock the whole thing down by accidentally kicking it.

Just what I needed as I head to bed. Fear.

I thought of that before posting, but I doubt any accidental ninjas will be kicking around it tonight.

I didn't take any pictures today. I will, just to show people what NOT to do. My transition is hideous. It is truly ugly. I think I placed the inner opening too far out from center of the dome....and I'm seriously teardropping it to get the damned thing closed and in my hast to do so I have a hole between one course of bricks and the opening. Tomorrow I will photograph this vile beast and see if I need to tear down any bricks and do it again. I am thinking I can make a plug for this hole andmortar it in, and hold the plug in place with futur courses of bricks for the transition and vent landing arch

I say keep going. When you look into the oven you only see the back wall and yours looks great. It won't make any difference if it is not a perfect dome. The beauty of these ovens is that no two are the same.
