This is what most people do.

Wayne, thanks for the suggestions. I made some forms but had trouble getting them to line up with the actual door. I ended up using the door with wedges underneath and some aluminum flashing over the top. I hope to be able to keep working on my own. I brought the standing issue up to give me a cop out for the erratic mortar work. Bruce

I recon you know best what you can do my main concern is the wheather. Your summers are about the same as ours the temps are not the worse thing its that humidity that saps you. You take it easy !
Once you get about that arch transition you might consider changing your methods to compensate for the height. You could start to build on a form.
One easy way is to use one of those blow up exercise balls. Put it in the oven blow it up and build to that. I would not be concerned with possible gapes in the mortar , my own dome was built on a form has heaps of gapes and no dome cracks but hairline cracks near the entrance were my mortaring was the best.
At the end a inch of mortar over the dome to lock it in.
Don't ever forget your building a dome which owes it strength to gravity more than the mortar.
Regards dave

Dave, thanks for your concern. Since I can't work very long at a time, I take frequent breaks and cool off. Reminds me of an interview I listened to of a North
Florida bank executive who was retiring after over 50 years (he started as a teller). He was asked what the greatest innovation he had seen in banking over his career (the interviewer clearly expected an answer related to computers). He answered "air conditioning" saying you wouldn't believe how the fans blew all the paper around previously. Bruce

First time I've been upstaged by a door.

I am pretty pleased with it. I haven't had a chance to finish it but I think the hard parts are done. I just hope warping is not a problem. Bruce

I have an arch. I ended up using the brute force and massive ignorance approach. Will finish up the transition tomorrow.

Bruce,

Your persistence and determination is inspiring to me. Keep it up and soon there will be an oven for you.

Thanks, I appreciate the encouragement. Feels good to see the dome take shape. Bruce
