Todays Efforts Part 2

For the better part I have been able to maintain those tight joints I was looking for. There are a couple of aberrations but generally the brick to brick fit has been achieved.

From course 10 I have been grinding the back of the bricks so it fits tightly inside the oven to the previous course. I got this idea from Giannifocaccia [John] to me it looks much better and maintains that tight fit.

Todays Efforts Part 3

And nearly there

I'm amazed at how the 2 dimensional arch combination of arch bricks and straights has worked so well course for course 3 dimensionally. Lined up perfectly to my dome template markings.

Moving closer to Giannifocaccia infamous octoplug [he set the bar with Doug so why not]..... 17 firebricks on course 11 and then 8 for course 12. Then the plug. Not far to go. Hopefully tomorrow and next weekend.

Thanks Ben, I tell you though I am bloody sore. Getting that brick to brick fit is Damn hard work fine tuning each brick. Up down backwards and forwards.

I hope the expectant father appreciates what I've done with his bricks.

Brickie I hope to dock next weekend.

That's a good looking dome. Great to see it all working out as planned.

Thanks Sharkey

and thanks for your assistance throughout the build. Esp. around that annoying triangle.

Hey I had a brain fart today and am thinking of polishing the inside of the dome and the floor or maybe just the floor. If I can work out how I might get in the dome to do it, stop safety glasses from fogging up. But then again .............

Not sure how or what tools to use though. Floor not an issue I have an orbital sander for floor, dome a bit harder I believe I could only use a 3" sander, grinder not sure. Any ideas of how I might achieve this and what to use?.

and by all means please try and talk me out of it

That is an oven worthy of high praise, beautiful brick work, I cannot wait to see what you do with the outside.

Thanks Chip for the vote of confidence. Its taken a while but must still be patient.

Sorry to disappoint but it wont be as elaborate as some. I viewed Gulf's build the other day and his is finish is amazing. Yours is amazing however my plan Chip is to stick with the igloo look. Not the dog house. Having some challenges figuring out the BBQ position with WFO being so close to the Corner but will worry about that later.

I am finishing the outer decorative arch with the same brick as my home, maybe with a larger central brick which I will Coat with a rust look finish that I have used on cement pots.

I am following a commercial oven builder's advice and using shiralite then the blanket, render and then finishing with a granite look finish coat.

Colin,

IMHO, leave the inside of dome as is, when you fire it will get sooted, then clear, get sooted, etc. You could smooth off any high edges on the "floor" that might catch a peel though. Nice build, excellent taper arch.
