Thanks Wayne, tried real hard to have no gap on the inside. Wish I tried a bit harder to stagger my bricks as I ended up with a few joins lining up with each other but I cant have everything... Should be ok. This was my first go at this type of thing but I quickly learned its all about the consistency of your mortar and how you butter your brick before you lay it. Stayed strict to my IT and also test fitted every brick and trimmed them where needed to fit up to the next one. Was taking me a full day for every course.

Thanks Stevo

I feel much better now with mine taking so long, I thought am I doing something wrong. I am also looking for that brick to brick fit no mortar. For the most I am achieving it, doing lots of kilometers back and forth to the saw, take a bit off here a bit off there. Up and down from the ladder sore legs by days end and then I look and only have achieved 3/4 of a course.

BUT THE END IS NEAR five course left after i pass the arch this afternoon.

Still so many questions....

I was facing much the same conditions as you are now....too much rain!
I was prepared to do a pearlite layer had a chichen wire cage affair made 75mm out from ceramic and poked handfuls pearlite/cement through the wire and it rained. Ripped the wire and the unset pearlite cement off just in case the rain carried the cement through and wreak the ceramic layer. I replaced the pearlite/cement layer with rockwool ,a layer of chicken wire and put 2 maybe 3 lite layers of render over that. thickness varied probably 20 to 40 mm to overcome the lumps but the rockwool layer wasn't that lumpy. Used just render by the bag.
yes I did a crack at junction of the brick chimney and dome. Uneven expansion I suppose, it wasn't a biggy and I chased the crack open with an angle grinder and filled with paintable silastic. Never a problem after that.
I have Brick veneered over the dome now more for looks than wheather proofing.
Hope something helps
Regards Dave

Thanks heaps Dave, I'll aim for around 20 to 30mm, should be plenty. Not the best weather for drying out my oven right now that's for sure. Had a look at Gulfs jig for keeping it round. Yeah I'll be in that. This site is so good for ideas and information. Also, I really like your veneer bricks so if my rendering skills turn out to be limited, I might copy your brick veneer idea too. Did you get the brick tiles locally? They do look good.

Hi Colin, Passing the arch was my first milestone and I was relieved it worked out ok but once I closed the dome with that final brick, all those sore backs and dried out fingers started to feel worth while. Worked out I made something like around 700 cuts with my brick saw. I had fairly large bricks which I quartered first then tapered each quarter. Glad its over for now.

Could not find anything local so mine are made of 1/2 brick split down the middle with brick bulster and layed like normal brick over the dome . If you check out V-wiz build and gulfs they have actually split the bricks down themselves using a bricksaw and layed them like tiles the grouted the gapes
It was V- wizs oven that gave me the idea so there not much that's new around here
Regards dave

Hi Steve,

Love the oven! it was great reading through all the posts to see the journey. I was hoping to build a 36" as well. Given my lack of experience (Lego being my main construction medium, and not for 20years or so...) I decided to buy a DIY kit. I finished it on the weekend, all in one day which was a great, feel a little cheated though seeing your experience and awesome oven. Maybe if I move I will give the oven another go and build from scratch...

I have covered mine with render (Dunlop Acrylic render bought at Bunnings). It has been curing since Saturday and there are a couple of little cracks in it around the place (2-3). Not sure what to do with those, if anybody has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate some input. They're very thin and not too long, maybe 100-200mm long... I'm thinking of giving it a coat or two of concrete water sealant as well.

Once again, congrats on the build, absolutely awesome!!

Cheers,

Tim

Didn't matter how it's achieved, you have an oven. And I assume eating pizza..

So well done.
brickie in oz and mothy like this.
