The molding clay idea is great. Way to think out of the box.

It might also work for other difficult cuts like at the inner arch transition or flue transition.

Do not worry about that hidden brick, the mortar will eventually fall into one of your future pizza's and you will again see the brick.

Well we have a dome happy to be the first to congratulate you!
I wouldn't worry about that mortar its V shaped so its not like it will drop in on anything I recon.
Would like to see some of the inside though. Yes I know its not like some of those perfect fitting brickwork ovens that we all seem to admire.
Myself If I was a betting man my money would be on little cracks in you oven. Those few extra gapes etc will I sorb the movement in the heating and cooling of you oven. Well there is only one way to find out.
So on to the insulation layer? Sparing layer?There seems to be a bit of talk about the importance of insulating in prevention cracking as well . I'm not sure but it wouldnt hurt.
Regards dave

Dave, Thanks for the congrats. Yes, I pounded the keystone in to the delight and cheers of the crowd, the popping of champagne corks, and the sound of trumpets. Well not so much any of that last part. I will attach pics to this post, fair warning, they aren't pretty (I'm referring to the brick work; not to me). Still I think the dome will support itself and I did keep the dome height right at 19". Still, having it to do over I would take down a few rows rather then try do it the way I did.

I think the next step is to add the extra thermal mass to the dome. Should I add anything to the refractory mortar (like stainless steel needles or firebrick sludge). After insulation, curing , and working out the entry. Somewhere in there waterproofing.

I hear it gives it that special DIY WFO flavor.

Gapes don't matter
Use stainless needles ..... I wouldn't bother the domes strong enough by its self to hold up the sparging layer. Firebrick sludge .... Don't know it would be the same as the dome for thermal mass I suppose as its firebrick. It would treat the propotions as for the sand ...the agregeate .If you using the store brought high temp mortar ... Perhaps not, as it would possibly effect the strength of the product.
Anyway there my thoughts on that. Again well done on the dome!
Regards dave

Nice to know my gaps are (as Microsoft would put it) a feature not a bug.

I spent this a.m. cleaning up the oven. I then tackled and the tile saw and I ended up with a bucket of sludge. Anyways here are a few more pics.
