One flue behind the other will mean that you end up with a really deep entry and the oven will be a pain to work. Having the flues side by side will allow you a shallower entry.You could cast your entry so you have a manifold going to the two pipes.

Hey David,

I would definitely be going for the side by side option. I have attached a very highly photoshopped (mspaint) image that I have created

It may be easier no have a flat top rather than the angle though.

I think castable might be outside my skill level / budget sadly!

Thanks for chipping in!

Bevan,
Like David, I think that your double barrel side/by/side flu's do look great. But, I am wondering if your artwork is true to scale. What size brick are you representing in your pic? I am thinking that you will end up with a much wider chimney than what I see in your artwork. Not, that it is a problem, just something to consider.

Very good point!

I think if I can use 1/2 bricks (2 inch wide) for the chimney brick work the total width would be 16 inches. So instead of the 'brick and a half' width, it would be 2 bricks.

Hopefully that width is not too dominating.


Of course that is assuming I can use half bricks without issue...which I have no idea about

Thanks for you comments and please do point out things I may have over looked.

Cheers,

Bevan

This is where my build takes a different path from most of you guys.

I have begun building the dome, but not using any cuts. And because I am using pavers with a rounded top edge the mortar joints look bigger than I hoped.

I also decided to make some changes based on info I have found on the fourm, such as more sand in my poor man's mortar and not wetting the bricks.

I would like to shorten my IT at some point soon to start bringing the dome closer in. This is because the pivot point of the tool is higher and if I don't bring it in I will end up with a 19" high dome. Better to do it a couple of times to make the transition smoother and earlier right?

If these are mistakes please let me know!

Are your pavers concrete? If so I see a problem.

Sorry, did not see conversation on clay in prior posts....

Nope, clay pavers fired to 1200c. They should be fine. There was a run down on them and the other options a few pages back.

I am scared to post photos of my recent progress. I'm just after an oven to cook some pizza's well, so it's not pretty!

Gravity is starting to be a real PITA with keeping the bricks in place, so I think it is time to retire the IT and seek out a swiss exercise ball to finish the dome off.

When am I able to remove the arch form? Should be fine tomorrow right?

Cheers,

Bevan
