Oh when you cut all your bricks the paste in

Floor to lock the tiles? It's tight but ya get
1/8" gap here or there... Looking at going vertical.
Bubb, the IT does not look quite right in the picture. It seems like the top of the brick is aligned with the rod going to the center. The rod needs to be aligned with the center of the brick otherwise you will have a small offset in the radial direction where two courses meet.

Bubb,

I can't tell exactly from the pic, take a look at where the center of the rod on the IT hits the "L" shape wood block. The center of the IT rod needs to hit where the center of the brick or the tilt of the brick if off and becomes cumulative on each course then the domes gets off.

On the otherhand, don't despair. I'm pretty sure the guys at Pompeii had never heard of spreadsheets and calculators.

The reason I asked about your arch is because you have the dome bricks pushing against the back surface of the arch side bricks in your mock-up.
I am not an expert, by any means, but that doesn't quite look right. It looks like you will end up with the arch in front of the dome, instead of in the dome holding up the bricks above the opening.

Have you read this thread? I sure wish I did before I started.

I've been wading through a few threads looking for a picture that illustrates my concern, but naturally when you want one......
I settled for a pic of what we did on my friend's oven. It is a semicircular arch, but it does illustrate my point. The arch needs to back in under the dome if you get my drift. It's so much easier to do than it is to describe

I got what your saying about the arch. I'm laying up the
Arch as I go to get under it?! Buy I've seen plenty
Of builds where they build the arch first and just fill
In behind it. Your picture of a full arch is perfect, but I
Need shoulders on mine for biggest opening. ( for pigs )

I have OpenOffice on my Mac and it was free. There is also LibreOffice.

IT looks a lot better now.

Bubb, how tall is your first course? Can't tell from the picture.

Do you think you could modify your IT to be a bit lower? The 3 1/2" will get added to the height of the dome.

Bubb,

I have to go watch Germany play, so I went ahead and made a spreadsheet for you assuming 4 1/2" for the first course. I hope it is what you are looking for. Double-check that the inputs are correct (orange fields on left).
