Default Re: Importance of cutting insulating board to oven footprint?

After looking at all the builds I decided to surround my hearth insulation specifically to keep it protected from....me! I know that when I start building the dome if I had any exposed insulation I would lean on it or kick it and fray it. Same with exposed vermicrete. The pics show 2" of Insblock 19 on top of 3 1/2" of vermicrete.
My jigsaw cut the Insblock like butter. It was strangely firm enough to make very exact cuts and I could 'shave' off a 16th of an inch with no problem.
