Here's quick and dirty mockup on how I plan on buttressing my outer arch.
I'll be anchoring the cinder blocks with some rebar into the table top and filling the cinderblocks with concrete so they can't slide.
I went with cinder blocks because I couldn't decide on how I wanted the front to look. This way I can either render it with stucco or use brick or stone veneer.
The reveal will be about 3 cm.

Got my outer arch done and now its time to figure out how to attach a steel chimney. Is it really necessary to use a 200 mm chimney on these things? The biggest they use in Norway is 175 mm. 200 mm is available but nobody seems to have them in stock.

Thumbs up Re: 42 inch Pompeii build i Norway

G'day
If 175 mm ( 7in ) is what's available, I can't see why not. Smoke is only a real problem at start up when things are cold. ( unless you wood not properly dry)
Start your fire on the hearth under the chimney, so the chimneys good and hot and drawing well. Then its a case of just pushing the fire into the oven proper after alls good and hot.
Regards dave

I ran out of Lime and have only 12 bricks to lay and my chimney is done. Should I buy another bag of lime to finish the chimney or could I use regular mortar?

Type N mortar (before adding sand) is 1/2 lime and 1/2 portland. So, 2 parts type N is equal to 1 part of each. I used type N to make home brew for laying my flu and chimney .

I purchased a bag of KC 50/50 which most likely is what you used. I'll just add clay to that mix. Thanks....

This coming friday I plan to start some very small curing fires, have a few beers and just enjoy looking at it.

I looks like you might have a neighbor in the background of your photo that is anxious to see some pizzas coming out of your oven. Looking good!

Started curing my oven on Thursday. Had a small fire going for about 6 hours and tried to keep the temp at around 200 F. You could really see the water vapor coming out of the bricks.
On Friday I had a 12 hour cure at around 300 F. This time I moved the fire around in the dome. As the bricks got drier the temperature increased on the outside of the bricks.
Today I plan on 350 to 400 F and then I might insulated with the blanket if I feel that the bricks are dry enough.
