Yep you are right, but that is from the sides, I was trying to figure out the distance from the back of the stand.

Thx

63 is your width side to side.. so the center of your slab should be the center of your dome.
31.5 inches from either side.

Now measure from the center of the back to 31.5 inches.

that will keep the same distance around the sides and the back.

18" + 4.5" + 1/2" + 1" + 4" = 28"
floor / brick / cladding / blanket / vermcrete Total 3.5 inches left

(... Enough room that you could build an enclosure....)

70" - 31.5" = 38.50" left over for the front.

18" + 4.5" + 4.5 " + 4.5" + 4.5" = 36"
floor / brick / inner entry / vent hole / outer entry

Looks like you will have 2.5 inches to spare up front....

I hope this makes sense.

Dave

Eddie,

Congrats on your progress, i too have been prograstinating the oven build. I live in Jax beach and would love to find out where you are procuring your fire brick and other technical products needed for the build. Also, wouldnt mind visiting the build as well! Good luck and look forward to hearing from you.

Hello woodhead (sorry; you did not leave a name)

I found the fire bricks at Jinkins Brick Factory, they are at Phillips highway, at the corner of JTB. they also have the fireclay by the bag. The firebricks are $1.15 each. I found the Vermiculite at Halls Ace Hardware, they are at San Jose Blvd, at the corner of Loretto, they have the 4CU ft bags for $16.00.
Everything else that I needed I found at Lowes. You will not find the high heat mortar You will have to follow the formula provided within this forum, Lowes has all the ingredients. Send me an email provided in my profile, and we will arrange to meet.

Looking forward to hear from you

Eddie

Today: Saturday 07/19/2008: I built the hearth support and assembled the frame, but I still need minor adjustments for the frame to fit right. I could not continue working, the rain came in.
I will try tomorrow.

Dave, like your layout for the placement of the oven. Am I mistaken that some people opt not to put in that "inner entry" brick and actually create the vent hole between the "brick" at the oven entry and the "outer entry" brick thus reducing the requirement in front by 4.5 inches and then take up that extra space up fron with a brick cladding?

Thanks, Tony

Today Saturday 08/02/2008, I completed the hearth. I followed the instructions provided by fornobravo, but I needed more vermiculite and more Portland cement.
I also added an additional internal frame to maintain external space to build surrounding bricks after the dome is built in the near future.

Hi Dave,

Do you know the formula(mixture) for cladding?

Thanks

Eddie
