I only put refractory concrete over the top of the dome because I laid the bricks flat to save bricks and I had some spare concrete I wanted to use before it went off.
I added about 1" or what ever the two spare bags contained.

If I decrease the ref cement to 2" then I can increase the insulation to 15" or increase the size of the oven to 57". Since the holes are cut in the floor the size of the table is the size of the table and no looking back. Which would you do brickie?

Edit: On consideration I think I'll increase the insulation, the oven is big 'nuf.

I keep coming to this then forgetting it. While the oven can be a somewhat raised (due to the floor being low in the onion) standard half round the onion can be formed by piling on extra lava rocks on top where the heat is inclined to escape from anyway. The outer 5" shell can contain it all. Besides the chimney has to pass through that high insulating lave rock on its way to the center top of the onion.

After a couple days with the flu Sho came back today and worked on a a wall Dolores wanted done and then continued on chipping the holes through the floor for the posts. Sho's birthday is coming up and we're going to give him a party.

In other good news the bedroom downstairs which was such a project is finished Friday and that means we get to let go of our painter, Ricky, for a while. Sad to see him go but...he has other work to go to. That gets us down to 2 guys, Sho and the carpenter, Fidel, or 'Del". Del has maybe 6 weeks left. Materials can be spendy. Release a guy and it takes away a considerable expense, all things considered.

Lastly I sourced silicate so I now know where to get all the ingredients for the project.

I'd like to get calcium alumina cement but that's not going to happen...though there is one place I can look that's maybe a 1 in 10 shot of finding it.

Work has been slowed by fiesta in Sho's town, the resulting funk, Sho's subsequent birthday, the resulting funk, and then the election, and the resulting funk. The politicians buy votes which many of the voters use to buy booze. Monday Sho will have another project then return to the posts.

Holes are finished chipping and the metal bar for the 8 posts is all done. We're going to Camiguin Island for lava rocks on Monday, stay through until Friday. There's good pizza there and sights to see. Hopefully come home Friday with a bunch of lava. Not at all ready for it but need a get away. Next Monday Sho will start pouring posts and soon we'll need to acquire our clay, silicate and limestone. Have some really heavy limestone rocks out front I'd like to be rid of but they're too big to work with. We'll go to the quarry but I'm concerned they'll want to sell me 6 cubic meters of the stuff as a minimum. Need to break up those big limestone rocks, any ideas?

Glad to see you are back. I was wondering how long the festival lasted.
