You did yourself a favor by bonding your arch bricks together, instead of doing rows of single arches.

Default low dome [almost] square oven on wheels

Sounds like "(1/2-3/4") layer of refractory over the entire dome" it is.

Tom, I hope youíre talking about homebrew refractory, because that's my plan for tonight.

David, I have some wheels mounted. They are 3" metal, with a load capacity of 1000 lbs. each. Looked at the rubber wheels, but decided that because of long periods of inactivity they wood probably not be the best choice. If I were planning on moving it quite a bit, definitely would have sent the extra cash for them.

Bill, I'm not too worried about it falling or cracking. If it does I will just rebuild. The stand is beefy enough for much more weight (after I finish adding the diagonals) and firebrick is relatively cheap, so no worries there. Iím just slightly afraid that a brick will land in my pizza!

Cool...looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

One thing I'm curious about and would love to hear others respond to...

Is it worth laying hardware cloth (or chicken wire) over the bricks along with the additional refractry to provide a reinforced skin?

Seems like it would provide a substantial amount of strength with very little downside???

I say congratulations, keep it up and move on. This thing took you one day to build? even if it were to collapse in the next year its still worth it. You can rebuild it again. lol.

Default low dome [almost] square oven on wheels

Last Tuesday I took Tom's advice and added some extra mortar to the top. I covered it with one of those blue tarps for the next 3 days because the weather man predicted rain (he was right 1 out of three days). When I finally got back to work, the mortar showed a lot of cracks.

So I got back to work on Saturday, but as luck (and a one year old and a five year old) would have it, I didn't get much accomplished. I did get all the sides insulated and some of the reinforcing welded in.

On Sunday, I decided that the way I was going to mount the smoke stack and landing I wanted to brick in the front as bit. This is another would not do again thing, took me too long to cut those bricks and then they never stuck well. I only put them in there to keep the hot flue gases and possible fire from direct contact with the insulation.

After messing with the arch, I welded the frame on top and the rest of the reinforcements. It was then Miller time, and I cooked a couple of pizzas in my home oven, hopefully for the last time.

As the night fell, I started my first curing fire.

Insulation test. I did a simple man on the street test. I took a piece of the insblock 19 and hit it with a torch for a few minutes. Got up around the 500 F range fairly quick. The other side, still about 70 F range. I LOVE IT!
