A chain of stolen ideas. I must acknowledge all those contributions from everybody, the evolution of builds and ideas on this site are second to none. Am using Doug's and your build [and couple of others] predominantly. But I still want to see 'octoforno' final photo's as i am interested in how he finished his outer arch and landing area with the flared opening as it is doing my bloody head in currently, as to how bricks on an angle form an arch as you go verticle. I just cant visualise it.

Cheers Colin

Will there be a chimney out the front of the door?

That is some sharp brickwork and the door is beautiful!

Hi Doug

I have a question re cutting oneside of the brick [ img-0873 page 222 ].
It seems in the picture that you leave a wedge at the rear of the brick.

Is this intentional to allow mortar fill to hold the Brick.

or it appears to me that

The angle being marked and cut on one side is not cut all the way through the Brick, but only 2/3 of the Brick leaving this wedge shape to fill with mortar also allowing the brick to be a little wider at the front.

I hope that makes sense. AM i seeing this correctly.

Doug, are you using the refractory mortar or a home brew? The bought stuff is very expensive.

In answer to your question NO (do you think that question is really appropriate)

I and others find this to quite offensive, I hope Josh has not seen this post yet I would hate for him to look at his lovely door and think of it in the way you suggest.
David may be you should engage your brain before you let your fingers start working.
I bet the edit button still works too. +1 on offensive.

KD, that is a nice looking build, and your influence really shows. You should have kicked up a new thread for that one!

Thanks Doug. This pool has bled us dry so looking at cost saving where I can hahaha

Re: offensive coment...I agree, I had the opportunity to travel to Poland a few years back and visited the site...the word Horrific comes to mind.

Hopefully this was just a massive brain fa=t on the posters part.

Cheers

Alex

I did not know him when he had the door made, he has had it for some time and had been looking for someone to help or build the oven for him.

So I have designed the oven around the door, so far so good.
Yes he is doing some good brickwork, he want's it to be really neat.
That smithy has some serious skill! That door is very,very clean..it doesn't look hand made. It reminded me of the old, ornate cast doors I used to see on wood stoves growing up.

That's some trick too...designing an oven around the door.
