BJ,

Tip, run a strip of duct tape over the gap between the floor and dome wall. This will keep mortar from dropping down the gap and help minimize stress/cracking potential with the different thermal expansions between the floor and the dome.

Question Re: Joe's 42 in Port Townsend

Joe

Are you using an IT for your build? IF so, better get it in there for the tilt.

My progress got derailed by a few priority projects like window replacements in the house and due to salmon season, many fishing trips.

So here are a few photos of some real progress in the last few weeks. The dates on the pictures are not correct by the way.

Whole bricks that's interesting. Won't that leave huge gaps around the floor of the oven.. what's the intention as you move up the oven.

Collin,

Not sure what you're referring to, but here's a pic of the floor and first two courses. I left a little gap between the floor bricks and the wall bricks. I do have substantially more overhang by using full bricks. As I go up, the bricks get smaller. I'll post some more pics soon that will show how it has developed.

Thanks for your interest,

Joe

After much angst over the "arch and transition," once I got into it, it all started to make sense and before I knew it, I was fitting the bricks for the course above it. I am actually starting to think I might finish the dome in a few days!
I'll post progress pics in the next post.

It appears to me that you did this very well.

Very nice job on that arch and dome tie in. Something to be proud of for sure.

Nice work, no sign of the dreaded droop at the arch, on the home stretch.
