How many tubes of caulk did you need?

I used this caulk - one tube was enough

For the gap, I stuffed it with ceramic fiber rope. It was waaay cheaper than that as I bought by the foot. IIRC, they sell it at seattle pottery supply by the foot.

Results from the calculation spreadsheet:


8" chimney:
3 meter height 0.13276 m^3/s
1 meter height 0.07665 m^3/s


6" chimney:
3 meter height 0.07468 m^3/s

I think people would agree that a 1 meter high 8" dia pipe should be sufficient for a 38" oven. What is the benefit of twice the draft? Faster heating?

After taking a week off because it was too hot for me to work here in Seattle. I finished row 9 today. Took extra time because my blade finally ran out of diamonds. Probably took as much time to free the arbor nut as to drive to the hardware store and buy a new blade.

Still, finished the row tonight after sundown. Watching the mosquitos resting on the dome after biting me, I've officially put my blood and sweat into this oven. The tears have all been away from the oven itself.

I used sticks to prop up the bricks until the keystone was done, then crawled inside to clean up. Good times. I think I made the door too big, but it sure didn't feel like it while I was inside there.

I think I can do a 3 brick top layer, and finish up the dome tomorrow. Yeah.

Time for a celebratory pint.

I got a little sloppy at the end, but it's all mortared together and I'm taking the rest of my afternoon off.

Yeah.

Congrats! I am sure it feels good. Great thing is that while only a few will ever look at the inside of your dome - no one will see the outside of the plug!

Ahh, I love panicking and worrying when I can't work. I neglected to put a cardboard spacer between the floor and the dome bricks for an expansion joint. Should I go in there and pull the floor bricks and shave them down?

I'm recovering from a back injury, probably contributed to by my crawling in the oven to clean the last bricks, so I don't relish it. At least it would be face down this time.

Any tips on pulling up floor bricks? If it was smooth I'd use a suction cup, but I'm thinking that won't work here.

Don't worry about it. It will be fine.

Calculate the thermal expansion of the circumference of the oven VS the diameter and you will have your answer. In other words, no, there is no need for an expansion joint there.
