I just added water - dried hard as diamond. You mentioned 2 bags, not sure of the build you have in mind but you may consider the home brew - a WHOLE lot cheaper. Nice choice of dog, looks a lot like mine, 11 -12 years old? Hard to tell on my lap top...

Too funny Oz!

Thanks Les. The lab in the picture is named Dash. He is 7 years old and thinks he is 7 months old. I do have his mom who is 11 but shes on the tail end of life. (poor girl)...cant go wrong with chocolate! (unless it gets too close to the pizza oven ad Oz said)

Got some more done today. Put rebar in the bond beam top layer of blocks, made hardibacker floor for hearth slab with supports.

next is fill corner and mid wall cores, rebar for hearth slab and pour it this weekend. 4inches of slab, two layers of CalSi board and then lay out cooking floor bricks. It is going faster than I thought with the help of my father in law Jim. Thanks Jim!

Pictures this weekend.

Buggy,

That is quite some progress. Will be cooking pies in no time. Looking forward to seeing pics.

Well,

Its been since November when I finished the hearth slab since I've done any work on the oven. Busy Holidays and Kids sports not to mention hunting season back at it though. ready to "start going vertical". I'll post picts of the final stand stuff(came out great).

Anyone have any links to threads on cutting bricks with least number of passes etc? I had some bookmarked but cant find the page??? Im not looking to get crazy with my brick cutting just the most efficient for the standard at least.

It will be a igloo type oven so the inside of the dome will be the only part visible...I dont want to give it a hack job, just something efficient and not too intricate.

Chirobuggy,

Take a look at the jig and procedure I used here it may help or just give you a few ideas as food for thought.

Boylanta also contributed to this post with a nice jig of his own.

Thanks Chip...great idea! Ive been kind of hesitant to start the brick cutting and such because there are so many variables i haven't figured out yet and dont see how i can figure them out until i start and see them for myself. I am not looking to make the oven with the smallest mortar gaps etc. Just want to do a good job on it the most efficient way I can and still have a great oven.

I came to the conclusion that I just need to jump in and swim!

my father in law made me a great IT hinge I will post pictures of when I get a chance. He is a machinist, very handy and loves a good challenge. I showed him the thread and he came up with a great hinge that keeps the pivot as low as possible and rotates great.

thanks to all for the info. And thanks to mt father-in-law Jim for the help!

A couple of obvious things from the learning curve. OK obvious in retrospect...

1) All of the bricks on a particular row will be the same angles, (if cut properly).
2) Do not cut more bricks than you need for a particular row. I left my saw set-up to cut a row of bricks and cut a few short of what I thought I would use so I did not have left overs,
( OK I learned this after cutting way to many of the wrong size first)
3) Remember to stagger your joints. This may require some small bricks somewhere on the lrow. The small bricks will still have the same angles but just not a big a brick.
4) If you decide to taper the top or bottom -- choose to taper the bottom as it will be easier to properly align the bricks with your IT. Or said another way DO NOT TAPER THE TOPS OF YOUR BRICKS!!!! - unless you taper both the top and bottom equaly and - Boy that would be a bunch of work.
5) and the last obvious thing. Bricks get smaller as they get more vertical.
