You're a clever man Doug, I have been thinking how I'm going to close my dome in the next week or so but unfortunately I don't have a jack that's suitable to do it your way.
Might just have to make a temp stand and build it up as required.
I'm about to go and cut more bricks hopefully I can get the 5 chain done tonight.

Doug, this is a brilliant approach. Any other suggestions or advice for those of us thinking of using the same method. Anything you would do differently with the jack method. I think I will do it the same way and just wondered if there was anything else to consider before setting up the same way. I'm fast approaching the top rows.

Doug mate, it's a cracker! Thanks for the extra photos. So basically the disc size doesn't have to be perfect because it's not going through the hole. It just has to be a firm fit just the edge of the last course and the you use a shim/wedge to set the angle. Do I have it right?

Doug, it looks great, fantastic effort, well done. Looks like the ply disc worked a treat right to the end.

Well done Doug, It looks great. Is there a big "Topping Out" ceremony planed for when the keystone is placed and your brickwork is complete?

Great work Doug you'll be the envy of all your mates with that oven.
It's amazing how time flies when you get stuck into a project.
Make sure you take some nice shots on how you attach the blanket to the dome .

Thanks for the tip about the exercise ball Goose.
