Looking nice - that part is the most fun (although it all is pretty fun). Enjoy!

Re: 42" Oven
starting on the arch openings and noticed that there are all sorts of different sizes. Since I'm doing a 42" oven (Tuscan style - higher dome), should I start the arch after my fourth brick on the sides, going up to the height of 12.5"? I noticed lots of people doing it after the third brick, but that starts at 7.5" and looks like it arches up another 2-3", so I'm assuming they're doing the lower domed ovens? Thanks for any help...

Re: 42" Oven
I started at the third brick with an opening of 12.5 inches. It gives me plenty of room to cook and gives the arch sufficient strength. My oven it 42 inches and the dome height is 21 (a little less due to the flatness of the plug). Hope this helps.

Fourth course down...also started the base for the arches. Perfect weather for building.

Looking great so far.

Good to see you have taken the plunge and rebated your Openning/Inner arch.

It is fairly complex but worth the time spent

Re: 42" Oven
Hey John,
Thanks. Have a question. What do rebating my opening/inner arch refer to?
