Thanks. I am hoping that posting as I go will encourage me to finish it at this attempt!

I was not surprised to find that when I took a closer look at the project I had forgotten a lot of what I had planned. The solution to the eternal arch meets dome problem, that I finally got straight in my head before the last break, had dissapeared from my memory completely.

I just got on and cut some bricks to get back in the swing of it. It only took me 7 hours to dig my way to the back of the shed to extract the bench saw

Bricks soaking. Next chain about to start.

Glad to see your back on the job. Hope I can be some encouragement. Don't feel bad, I have gotten plenty of the harassment from my friends about the WFO.

Below is a quote from my thread were I begin to tie in the arch to my dome. I some what modeled this after Utahbeehiver's build. Hope this help jogs your memory a little.

Attached is the outcome,I settled for tighter joints verses staggering

Cheers guys. It's all coming back to me after a quick read and a look at the photos.
Started slow. I had never touched a brick before starting this so it's taken an hour or two to get back into it.

When you say small do you mean not very tall, not very wide or not very deep? Or some combination ?

Not so I thought. Inner arch where it meets the dome is 18" wide by 12" high. Ratio to dome size is spot on according to what I've read.
There will be two reveals as the arches widen towards the front.

Thanks. It's not my bricklaying skills but an obsessiveness I have about anything I take on. It annoys me and I wish I could shake it so I got more done

My apology, I mistook the shadow of the R/H side of the dome as being the brickwork. Your numbers are right.

Tidy brickwork as well, looks good.
