TomWeb,

It can easily be done with a Harbor Freight wet saw. You just shave small cut at a time. It is well worth the couple hundred dollars for the wet saw when building a WFO.

That is awesome! well done.
Now if it would cut bricks and lay them too?
Wish i would have had the sheet during the build, it would have really helped and will help the future builders out there. You must be a "closet" bean counter.
Thanks for doing this.
Tracy

Beehiver, thanks for the pic and very nice work

I figured there was a HF saw in my future and you're right...If I'm going to make the long-term investment in a WFO and slow food I don't want to be looking back on a year saying " I wish I would have....."

Hello all
Still in the research portion of my project. Sounds like this tool is just what one needs.
Not clear what "fixed length IT" means. Any chance someone could explain?
Thanks very much.

The IT is the "indispensibile tool". Search for that and you'll find many examples. Length is just what it sounds like - the distance from the pivot point to the brick facing edge of the tool

Got it, Thanx Deejayoh. While I've seen the spreadsheet calculator you've put together, ( which does look like a great tool.) I've wondered how 'those who have gone before' calculated their cuts on dome bricks?

I'll echo all and say what a treasure this forum and the support you and so many offer. I'm still lurking, reading and learning an awful lot. I thought the "If you could build your oven again, what would you do different" thread was great. I've moved beyond imagining to calculations and sketches. I favor an oven with stone, since there are tons of it on my property here in northern MD.....I just can't seem to get it to run to my building site!!

Thanks again!

For some odd reason, I can't download it... anyone else have this problem?

Ignore me - a reboot later and I can download it! Odd...

Love the spreadsheet. I was wondering how to lay this out, and you saved my hours of excel work. Thank you!

If I can't setup a jig with my wet saw, can I use the "side angle" as a measurement for the amount I tilt the course above the previous top of the brick, measured from the outside?

great spreadsheet.....................any chance of adding a line for the floor made out of the same size brick?
options of:
herringbone pattern
or brick wall stepped

would be just superb and should imho be appended to the next revision of the downloadable plans

Simple question here. Is oven diameter the outside diameter or inside diameter?
