Doug,
Fine-looking build! Anxious to see how the transition proceeds. Must be nice to have an assistant!

Doug,

That was a great idea on trimming the arch bricks. Wish I would have done that as it would have made the transition easier to deal with!

Hi Doug,
I've been reading your thread with great interest. Your oven looks to be coming along beautifully...great work !!.
Firstly, I was wondering where you got your supplies from and secondly, how do you know at what angles to make the inside cuts of the arch where the chains of 1/2 bricks connect to?
Regards,
Bruno

I like the simplicity of your inner arch and the way you made the reveal to stop the oven door (no fancy cuts). If your arch doesn't crack, I'll do the same thing

You and I started about the same time, but you are light years ahead now. You will be using your oven a couple weeks before I finish, so, I'll be watching

Sorry for bringing up an old post of yours. I have noticed that your angles get less as you go up the arch to allow for the decreased size of the dome the higher you go. Did you work out each angle? if so how did you do it? or was it an estimate of whay you may need?
I will definatly refer to you build once we move & I do my build.

Thanks in advance
Mike

Dear Doug
Great build... been watching your progress with great interest, glad to hear you have cooler wheather I couldn't imagine building mine in the heat!!
and Dear Mike
Just to offer a differnt bent. I have used a soldier course for the main reason being it that it gives you more room against the sides as the domes curve starts much higher. I'm really sure that doug's method ( and his constuction skills)he could have pulled the same thing off with a soldier course...the only real difference his arch would have to have a straight section before starting the curve.
