You probably have thin joint glue, its meant for joints no thicker than a couple of mm, above a couple mm and it cracks as it drys.
There is a thick joint glue for larger joints.

Yeah al
think thats the case , to cut a dome perfectly with 1-2mm joints front to back side to side etc all the way to the top is dream land . Its definately a possibility with a barrel oven such as youve done though. Ive used same brand mortar as you. If I built another I would definately use homebrew and not taper bricks until top.
cheers

Good day today ! Gave the dome a bit of a touch up with the sander pretty dusty but i had big industrial vac sitting in the hole at the top so cleared pretty quick. After all the dramas of the transition the last couple of chains and keystone was easy came up pretty good after all!. Now to finish off the flue and start curing , didnt think i was ever gonna get there.
Its prob well know but i drilled a small hole in the keystone and fitted plastic plug in the top , made it real easy to fit and remove whilst shaping.
Anyway heres a couple of shots

Ain't it a great feeling to have cut your last firebrick!!!!!!!!!! You have to be doing the happy dance fer sure. Nice build, I wish you would have posted the laser idea months ago tho! That looks like it really worked well for you. I am just starting curing fires myself. what kind of chimney will you be using? Clay or Stainless Steel? Good Luck and keep up the great work!

I was in a dilema trying to decide what to do about the front arch , any way just started laying bricks and came up with this. i left a 8mm gap between the front arch and the vent arch. Just gotta cure it now so i can insulate!
cheers

Hi Doug
That hole was 215mm my stainless flue is 200mm , in that photo I had a piece of 250 galvanized outer flue which will be above the roof line to make the tin weatherproof and the stainless flue will run inside that to a hat .
Im gonna render over two layers of blanket and blend into the back of the front arch.
Drilling that hole was cheating really as i run a Concrete Cutting & Drilling business. Ive got diamond drills from 16mm up to 600mm diametre. Ive cut thousands of metres of windows and doorways in brick walls in the last 18 years but the cuts on the oven were something i dont wanna do again in a hurry.
Cheers
