I used a Bosch 10" sliding compound miter saw with a diamond blade and used a garden pressure spray bottle to spray water on the blade also a fan to blow any spray/dust away from the say motor ant myself little dust and no issues.
My build is based on using tapered bricks and I have generally a 2mm joint to all faces.

It's official chop saws against wet saws....LOL!!

I have been working on my enclosure during curing fires today I built a box around the clay flue and covered it with cement board my goal is to do some brick veneer so I could do the flashing on the roof properly. I think I'm going to use plywood for the roof I'm not worried about combustion I have plenty of insulation around the oven and as it will be filled with loose vermiculite I am wondering how do you nail the asphalt shingles to cement board if I were to use it? I would like to do a copper roof but its out of budget assuming the cost for the veneer stone that I need to purchase I guess I could always change it later so for now its architectural shingles to match my home.

I have lit 4 fires so far
1st day 150 deg w/ charcoal
2nd day 225 deg w/ charcoal & wood
3rd day 300-350 wood
4th day 350-450 wood
**ended tonight**

5th night tomorrow I'm hoping 450-600 w/wood
6th night sat 600-900 w/wood
and then cook some damn pizza!!!!!

I like that you cut the ends of your eaves parallel to the house! I think that is a nice finishing touch.

Have you given thought to how you are going to flash the brick on your chimney chase?

Wow, I'm impressed with the quality of your build your speed and a chop saw, well done. I'm at nine months and well behind you. Enjoy your baby. I'm overdue and my back hurts. Enjoyed reading you build tonight.

I have been taken vacation to work on the oven so far 2 1/2weeks used up plus weekends my wife has been very patient with me.
I will be flashing the chimney with copper I have some leftover scraps from my home install hopefully it will be enough it will be just a standard flashing although I will slide the flashing in the brick line b4 I grout. The only issue I thought of was that the chimney is only 12" high on the gable end and with a 3-4" high flashing that really isn't high enough for snow as a matter of fact the chimney isn't even that high to the top of the flue is 18" But for rain no problem. I will definitely be clearing snow off the winter at least not because of the weight.
Has anyone ever made there own chimney cap just looking on line and the homeowner special isn't that special and it runs about $65 for steel I was hoping to get a copper cover but the price jumps to about $150 up!!
