Include the soldier course in your elliptical shape.

Although the first 4 1/2 inches is vertical, you can "catch up" to the ellipse in the second and third course.

Congratulations, the counter and bar look great. Your tile work looks nice so I bet once you get a dome design squared away, you'll have no trouble on the build.

Neils right about the 62-63% entry door height. But I'll have to see what shuboyje has for his door on his low dome. Didn't realize he went that low.

I thinks it's great to have a low-dome contingency on the forum. As long as you can slide a casserole dish in, you can still cook almost anything
Cheers, Dino

I appreciate the comments and suggestions. As noted prior, this forum is a incredible resource.

See any problems I am creating for myself? I like what I see, but I may be running off a cliff and not know it.





The opening will be 10 inches high and 18 wide on the inside. The outer opening will be 20 wide to account for the reveal. I don't have, nor want, a deep vent tunnel. So, I designed the interior arch at 2.5 deep. Should I do the same for the outer arch when considering the vent for the 8 inch chimney? I ordered the base plate and it should be here tomorrow or friday. Then I can see how to work it in based on the footprint.

I just made the dome template and now see what you mean Neil (regarding the ellipse height and side angle). Thanks for the heads up. It will be easier this way and accomplish what I desire.

How many rings should I try and make up the angle difference? It looks like a pretty good angle to cut back in. About 13 degrees eases it in over 5 rings. It creates a pretty fat wedge on the back side.

I ran mine in over 4 rings. I filled the back side wedges with shards of brick and with refractory mortar extended 1:2 with masonry sand.

The inside 1/3 or so of all wedges I used straight mortar.

"See any problems I am creating for myself? "

Since you asked;

Rotate your base 45 degrees counterclockwise so you can slide your pizza, pots, turkey pans, etc directly from your counter into the oven without lifting them.

You might even be able to move it forward so, that at the left side of the door, you can stand closer to the oven without reaching over the counter.

Neil,

I remember your oven from my first days browsing here. Love it.

I plan to tie the prep surface to the left of the oven to the small area on the right with a narrow landing (in front of the oven). That gorgeous 3x6 cedar edging should tie it together nicely; with a nice layer of tile over the span. But, I like how you think.
