Ahh...shot rock. Your laying it up well....an organic layup is better than chiseling it, there are bound to be lots of hidden fissures created by the blast....causing bad breaks on the last chisel hit.

A good penetrating sealer should do trick. I'm not sure whats available to you, but shoot me a PM if you want some recommendations.

I haven't gone back to your first pages yet, I'll take a look. Yes, my post was about water infiltration along the cold joint of your dome finish and the travertine.

Kerdi-Band ( Schluter), or Durock tile backer tape....anything alkali-resistant. Same thing for liquid memebrane.

I think the liquid membrane is the better choice.....when turning the diameter of the oven, it will be difficult to avoid wrinkling the tape, which could create a place for water penetration.

It appears that you left about 1/4"-3/8" space between the oven brick and the travertine. Did you leave it open or fill it with the insulation mix?

It should be fine either way, the only way it might tent the tile is if there were something solid filling in the space...like mortar, thin-set, grout or concrete.

Thanks mirassou. I found travertine easy to work with. Much softer than granite.

Stonecutter I ended up using Eternabond tape. Its made for RV roofs and is very sticky like bituthene.
Its backed with vinyl so it should act as a slipsheet and direct any crack to the cold joint.

I live in the foothills and winter and spring storms drop a lot of rock on the roads.
The crews usually stockpile it so we visit the piles and glean a lot of landscape rock.
This wasn't blasted but it is on the soft side.
Easy to work with as I only cut about 10 pieces on the whole install.

I need to finish the firebrick still.
I want to eliminate any horizontal surfaces that would pool water.

I had to drill a few extra holes for the pencil rod but I'm happy with how tight it went on.
I'd recommend installing wire between the firebrick to anyone planning to use stucco lath.

Wire is on and ready for 1st coat. Just tie it on and tighten with needle nose pliers until it sings.

I wish I had access to talus that looked like that....bonus that it is soft too. Usually stone with iron oxide is hard and does a number on chisels.

Finally had our clearing fire tonight. Ran 2 milk crates of oak thru it. Outside was 80 to 110 degrees.
Hearth brick was 220
and adjacent travertine tile was 110 with 1/8" air gap. Under slab was 70.
My wife decided to cook some sausages for dinner. :-D

Scratch coat tomorrow.

Thanks boerwarrior. Go ahead and pick a title and I'll change it. lol

Scratch is done. Not satisfied with the chimney transition tho. I have 8" on for a temporary flue.
My 6" came yesterday. I think I need a big piece of flagstone for a lid,
just put a 6" hole in it and call it a lid. :-D We will see.

That would look cool, though you may want to somehow buffer the stone with insulation, and not set it directly on the vent brick. Or use soapstone...that would look awesome IMO.
