Default Re: First Oven Build

I Really wish I could figure out how to post pics...........I'm building a Steel Dome WFO with a fireplace below.........the Fireplace chimney goes directly up into the entry of the WFO and on up to the chimney.......when the oven is in use, I can block off the fireplace chimney with a brick/granite block.....
otherwise I can use the inner door to the WFO in place and the outer door in place and utilize the between space for the chimney from the fireplace on out to the WFO chimney...
I'm sure this is totally confusing.......I'll try to get some help with pics to show you what I mean......
I think I may also be able to put a deflector in place to move the heat from the fireplace INTO the oven as a sort of white oven........low temps of course....
I know.........VERY confusing without the pics......

Buckey, I would love to see some pics of your design. It may help me design a better mouse trap.

After looking at the pictures on this site I have realized I poured to small of a pad to start my oven (only 4' x 4'). I'm new to working with cinder block and am trying to figure out the right size of my forms so I don't waist time and money on my blocks.

I guess I could base everything off the fact the full size block is 16" and a half is 8". Then base the size of the form on mulitiples of 16 and 8.

Here is what I have done so far. I have copied a version of a WFO I saw on this forum.

I poured the floor of the heath. Do I need to support the floor of the hearth? I put 1/2" rebar on 8" centers (criss crossed) in 4"s of mud. The floor supported with 1/4" angle iron at the front and back with I-beams in the center. The angle iron and ibeams are sitting on the cinder block beneath the top brick.

I left an opening 8" square in the rear the hearth slab so I can route the flue from the fireplace insert I will have sitting beneath the WFO.

Have I missed anything? Any suggestions would be helpful.
