Hi Allan = I am Chilled... You guys just added 2 pages over night with discussion on brick soaking . I went to bed and it was 22 I think.

Thanks for pointing out the arch. I totally missed that.... Looks much better with the bricks up.

True,
But that does not alter the veracity of the information I provided.

Looking good Colin. Still so neat and clean... but then my mess didn't really start until I was up a few courses.

Allan,
You raised the issue about wetting firebricks. Perhaps, if you feel so strongly about not doing it, the debate should be moved to the recommended changes thread.
It is an interesting topic and worthy of debate.

Hi All

Well I actually got some time this weekend to work on the oven, which I wasn't expecting. Completed the first chain above the hearth and got the next chain cut in half. Thought I would do this to see how the arch bricks differ from straights, in angles, position, cutting etc. before cutting the angle. As Dave [Cobblerdave] pointed out I am more a visual person. So far going really well. I have been studying Gianni's [octoforno] build especially the way he describes how he did his arch I think it is post 70 page 7. Still struggling with what to do with the string once you have worked out your dome angle. Any way will take another look in daylight.
