Similar to this one (just an older version)


But after a few hours on a wet saw I could feel my nose getting crusty from the dust, a paper mask just wont do.
hey mate, where did you get this mask from?

Hi brickie
Can one build the oven chamber from the very blue stones you had been cutting? I mean why did not you use them for building the hot chamber of your oven?
Actually here in Syria this blue stone is plentiful and I was planning to build an oven entirely from it and insulate it with pumice being unable to get all the materials I need and having plenty of pumice in the territory.
Cheers.

I laid the oven roof bricks flat to get more coverage and am going to use up a load of castable refractory concrete I have to bulk it up for mass.

As you can see the roof is bonded like it should be, even the 20mm pieces down the centre.
If I had of flattened down the profile I could have eliminated the 20mm piece but I needed the height to get to the Golden Ratio of 63%.
Hi brickie in oz, I am a big FAN! I have a question, how did you remove the form for the top arch? Looks like impossible to remove once you lay the top bricks.
