Those tools are way too clean! Once your oven is cured, I don't think there is a "too fast" on heating it.

Well everyone, the inevitable has happened. I have my first crack in my dome. Bottom left you can also see another very small one forming. Any thoughts on this. Do I just leave it be? It's pretty close to the top of my dome about 2/3 the way up.

Wear it like a badge of honour. The ovens without a fine crack somewhere are the exception to the rule. IMHO. It will settle to where it wants to be and physics say that it will not fall.

Bask in the joys of the oven.......... That is what the work was all about.

I would show you mine but I am a modest soul and try to refrain from exhibitionism!

K79,

If anyone says they don't have cracks in their build then they are probably giving you a politician's answer. I don't even look anymore, just did a 35 pie party last night and never gave it a second thought and the guest said the pizzas were great, cracks or no cracks............

Those aren't cracks. Those are "Thermal Adjustment Expansion Joints".
Just like my wife doesn't have wrinkles, she has laugh lines.

I build mine the same way everytime.
2 logs on the bottom
2 in the middle set off 90deg
2 on top.
Insert my fire stick and off it goes.
No paper, never fails.
