Looks good Jim.

Get some heavy cardboard and cover that floor!
Cut it to fit!

Trust me on that one....

Dave, it's a technique I've used when doing stucco work on concrete walls. You're always spilling a bunch of the stucco.

It's so nice to lift up that ratty wet dirty nasty mushy cardboard and have a clean floor underneath.

I'll get right on it!

Default Perlite stucco

Here is the after and before shot....

I had some perlite mix left over so I filled the holes in the stand....was surprised that it worked so well!

Finally put in the cardboard floor protection. Since the first course was set the cardboard was just pushed into place against the soldiers.

Laying the second brick course....I'm using a premix refractory to set the brick with the shim and then filling in with the homebrew refractory.

Default Doming

I mix the homebrew refractory in big batches to infill the bricks and joints using a mortar bag and trowel.

....then smear the remaining mixture over the dome for strength and some additional dome mass.

Now I need to do the arch and some additional buttressing!

Looking good Jim.

It's about to get a bit more challenging.

Good luck on the arch. Have you got it figured out in your head yet?
That part about drove me nutz!

Arch-smarch! Cast a vent for better draw and easier construction. Since the front is going to be in the enclosed bake house, good draw is going to be important...
