One of the Christmas presents I received this year was a dough docker, I was so happy to be able to say what it was thanks to an answer I recently recieved on this forum. I also recieved a peel, infrared gun and a scale so maybe the family is buying into my obsession, or I'm just hard to buy for.

NOTE THAT I'VE UPDATED A COUPLE OF POSTS
1. Material quantity, I've bought 260 firebricks and have 1/2 brick remaining, I'd guess I wasted about 10 bricks, mainly in the arch/vent area plus all the debris from the bevel cuts.
2. I'm almost finished with my third bag of Heat Stop 50.
3. I'd suggest insert legs in the center area of the plywood before pouring the hearth. I removed my forms today and even with cement block wall in the center I notice the weight of the hearth had bowed the OSB down a bit.

Hope this helps someone.

No one will look under there and fault you for a little sag.

I did use a middle leg and it turned out perfectly in the middle. My plywood was a bit warped on one edge so I shimmed a leg out on the cantalevered edge area, attempting to approximate the desired depth of concrete once the weight of the pour flattened out the concrete. I misjudged and got my sag there. One of many little things that I notice but no one else seems to.

Only a half a brick left? Perhaps you should frame it??

I used a middle leg.


It's still there in fact. I'll have to saw it out, but haven't go round to it yet.

Given that I put concrete blocks down the center I didn't think a middle leg would be needed. So what if it sags, sorry to say so do I.

Oh, I've got my sags too. Easy to overlook, if you never look in a mirror! Any cracks, I've only got one. My oven's a different story
