Dave, sounds like you recommend setting the CF board and floor first (wouldn't I need to before laying the plywood?). Thanks

Thanks for buying the book Bruce.

I deleted the website because unfortunately I had to many spammers and scammers coming to the site, it was wearing me down,
I did the site to help ppl understand brickwork but there are too many scammers wanting to take advantage.

CF board, hearth brick lay you ply guide/ IT tool mount/floor protector. Lay your dome bricks around the outside of it on the hearth bricks. No soldier sailor tinker tailor, in its simplicity lies it strength.

Weather was threatening most of the day. There never was any rain and I was away from the house most of the day. I was able to cut out a plywood template and left extra room in front so could work out entry area. My understanding is that the outer entry and vent area can be built free standing with a thermal break. However, I need to work out at least the inner entry before I can start laying bricks since it needs to be tied into the dome. I'm going to check out some of the other builds to see their entry design.

Question Re: 36" build in Tallahassee - AKA Bruce's Folly

Gudday Bruce
Re. Entry area. You have already figured out it can't be to deep.
What about width and height? I can't think of any reason you can't make it higher and wider than than what is considered normal apart from the proportion aspect. All the entry does really is carry the chimney externally to the oven.
There is no reason the outer entry can not be made of normal brick either ....you must admitt firebricks are a bit bland.
Just a thought
Regards dave

I'll retract the comment about the entry just being there to carry the chimney. I went back to a thread "Oven on wheels" in the other ovens section. That oven started with a stainless/S hood,no sides. It was wind effected, so bricks were stacked on the sides and finally mortared in permanently. So the sides diffinitly do serve to stop the breeze effecting the oven,blowing the smoke away before it can exit the chimney.
Regards dave

Default Re: 36" build in Tallahassee - AKA Bruce's Folly

I was having difficulty visualizing how the dome would meet up with the entry, so I tried to do a rough mock up. The images below show the various stages starting with creating a section of the dome using the bricks I had cut to surround the oven floor supported by my IT. The make shift arch's apex is approximately 12". Eyeballing the setup, it appears to me that the tie in to the dome should not be too hard and that I can start with vertical full bricks on both sides and work out the details as the course approach the top of the side bricks. Won't have a lot of time to work on the oven but will try to get the cf board cut and try laying out the floor. Any feedback appreciated. Bruce
