Default Re: Expansion gap question on dome

"This seems like a good idea to allow for thermal expansion. "

I would not bother with this as a design detail. Even if you leave a gap, this will eventually fill up with ash, bits of burnt pizza, dirt from the firewood etc and cease functioning as an expansion gap.

Your oven will continue to slowly expand and in 12 or 15 years a brick will fall out.

Wow Arthur,
I did not think to look for your album. It's a little difficult for me believe that those are your first brick to lay.

I hope you don't mind me adding this link to your album. This is something to see. An all brick stand. Impressive. I really like what you've done

Nice work..... Like the idea of angle on each corner, should have done that myself.
