Glen, that looks sooo nice. I like your flared entry. And did you use a "Lazy Susan" spinning thing (I'm not a carpenter) to spin your measuring tool around for the bricks? Really cool. The more accurate you are at the start, the better the finish will be. Keep up the good work, Dino

The Indispensable tool variation as very helpful in identifying the some of the angles needed to complete a WFO. I wanted to cut a few brick courses but I just could not wait and I had to start. I numbered all the pieces and then when I placed them in the water to soak. I lost all the numbers. Here is a TIP donít use pencil. More to follow soon.

I like that tapered opening. Dino convinced me that it is beneficial to have that. But how will you build your arches to be perpendicular to the entrance? If I understood Dino correctly, he mentioned that a little mortar can skew the angled arch "shoulder" brick enough to keep the arch perpendicular.
Your build is looking great! I'm not too far behind - I just poured my vermicrete/Foamglas layer.

Regards,
Bob

If you can get the TAVY Tile Puck to set the floor, it will help you set the floor and reduce the potential of the peel catching on a joint line. It is perfect to set tile with. Now a good time for a home brew "after" setting the floor. Next set the first course and check it with the "Indispensable tool". More to follow.

Pizza Bob I am having trouble uploading photos, sorry it took so long to get back with you. The vent bricks were tapered slightly (top to bottom) and placed perpendicular to the dome arch. I tapered a few bricks on the sides (front to back) You will need to build a form that can be removed after the bricks have set. Tip-cut the form short and use wedges or shims that can be removed so the form will drop enough to remove it in one piece. I will post pics when I can. Good luck.

Just returning from some time off and getting caught up. Your build looks great. Really clean, tight joints. Your jig seems to be working well, as you WFO looks to be very symmetric. Looking forward to it's closing up!

Wow! I could drink a 12 pack and a bottle of wine and find the entry to this puppy. Very cool entry. Nice job!
