there is a lot happening in this picture, i made a steel reenforcement strap around the base we are tightening it here, increased a layer of bricks on the bottom, changed the pattern of the bricks for the base to a double brick herringbone doing this ment i had fewer smaller peaces around the edges.



a mock up of the arch



so i have a few more pictures to post form yesterday and today, believe it or not all this was done in one day.

Impressive build. What flue size did you decide on? I still see a 6 inch listed in your first post. I would recommend a 10 inch ID flue for that size oven. It also looks like you decided to exceed the 18 inch inside height.

Are you going to lay your dome Bricks vertical? I think that may lead to excessive mortar exposure between the sides of the bricks. I would reconsider and lay them flat.

so here goes of what happened yesterday

did one layer for the dome , also added a 12 mm steel plate for the floor at the door as there is tons of wear and tear and wanted this oven to last me long.



a mock up of the door arch , all the plate steel used was bought by my grand father off a old ship that was being cut apart in the late 60's so i guess the steel is real old.



a wider view of the work site. by this time we have completed 2 layers.



more to come in a few hours

well thats been upgraded to a 6.25 inch ID SS pipe going 26 feet straight up, i have been assured that the height will create enough of draft and compensate for the narrow pipe.
and if this fails i have made provisions for a 10 inch pipe.
i already have the 6.25 inch pipe form a previous build. so want to try that out first.

that has gone up too its now at 24 inches,
it was not all that practical to do the 18 inch dome (looked too unstable to me )

do you mean on the inside of the dome? or on the outside as i am confused,
ii side the dome there is very little to none mortar being seen at the seems but on the outside is a whole different story.
there are big wedges where i need mortar to be filled and larger crevices.

Your insulation should extend outwards so that the base of the dome is also insulated from the supporting slab. You present configuration will work ok, but heat will leak into the supporting slab and reduce efficiency.
