Oh, and starting course 12, I'm still using the IT and not using the exercise ball yet....going to see how far I can go. I figure cutting bricks for the vent transition to the chimney and alternating mortaring between the courses and the transition permits the vertical brick to set before mortaring the next one

The only problem is that the final course layout is out of round, due to errors in angles. It probably won't look pretty, but it'll get done

That brilliant ! Alternate between the entrance and the dome. No wasted time no wasted mortar.

If you are determined you will get right through the dome with the IT. With the benefit of various bits to hold it together until the mortar goes off. I didn't use forms and it worked out fine.

All about personal preferences. Push the envelope.

Just a few more bricks to close the dome. I'm still using the IT, switching back and forth between the vent transition and the dome. I don't have the angles, so I'm going to cut triangles to fit between bricks in the last course before the final key stones. Can't wait to finish the dome and start the first curing fire!

Looks great. The alternating between dome and arch was a good idea and seems to be working good for you.

Definitely, and Deejayoh's comment about mixing a little wetter works well if you can find that sweet spot.
