That dome closing in looks great! Nice and round. Ken's keystone is great. I say go for it. You'll have a better feel for how you want it once you get to it.

It's about as good as it get's - you are building a round thing with square product. Nice job!

Les. I just went back and looked at your keystone...did you just cut it close and shave it with a grinder?

Mark - I glued 3 bricks together. I propped up a piece of poster board from the inside and drew the circle from the top (I don't do inside). Cut out the shape and traced it onto the brick. From there I just kept working the grinder until it fell into place.

One more thing to note - I used my kid's sidewalk chalk to mark the high spots as it worked it's way down the hole.

Thanks Kemo,
I think part of the clean factor is that I made compound miter cuts on each brick which really reduced the amount of mortar I used. The area on my basketball court where I am cutting my bricks is a disaster (I'll probably have to powerwash when I'm done). I am actually kind of bummed we came to Vagas for 4 days and I haven't been able to work on the oven. Crazy huh! Oh well soon enough.
