I might come up with some kind of cork to put in it that ain't to noticeable from the ground once the brick are layed on the dome. There is also the option of putting a decorative plate over it like was mentioned a page or two back.

That's pretty cool Amac,
I hope that I have enough blanket between the dome and the vcrete for it not to work. Though, your giving me an idea for the chimney cap . And thanks for the compliment on the vcrete but, it's kind of embarassing to see a perfectly round dome like yours done strictly by eye. Now that was a helluva good job .

Good accent on the helluva by the way. It depends on what part of the US for pronuciation. Down here where I'm from we tend to take large blocks of words in a sentence and squeeze them down to as few syllables as possible .

Gulf,

Reread your post about closing the dome and going to use your idea of multi discs to complete last few courses. Thanks for the innovation......also going to drill a hole in the last disk for the mortar to push out.

Thank's Russell,
But, if you reference back to (Karangi Kitchen 48inch ready to start)Karangi Dude's Build , you will see where I got the idea .

Gulf,

I did see the Karanga Dude did this innovation originally but you improved his great idea by just screwing a smaller disk to the larger one below. A nice improvement to KD design plus the mortar hole for the plug. But one thing, you have some serious competition on the cooking end between KD and Tu.

No competition . I know how to cook a little, but I want to learn how to cook a lot .

Thanks' Russell,
It's been slow around here of late, in not getting any real progress done on the MQ. I saw a post by Ken and saw his new
KEEP CALM
and
COOK
PIZZA
, signature and noticed that the crown had a fluer de lis. Well that and a few "skull heads", (a local slang for Budwieser, the non-diet version) , and that is what I came up with. At least until I can get a finished pic of her complete .

For the face of the stand, I cut 1" slits from old face brick. I used Speedset to attach them to the block and monolithic arch. I retro fitted a piece of sunlight resistant/direct burial electrical wire to light the wood storage area. I drilled through "between" the poured cells and ran it along a mortar joint to hide it in the face brick..

Removing the (+ or -70 alumina content) kiln brick, which had been toothed out was a chore. That stuff is hard. I was able to cut a couple in place, but found it easier to chissel the mortar out and replace. I made the mistake of cutting one on the wet saw and finnished off a blade.

I added three more narrow bands of luan plywood to the outside of the original form for the monolithic arch to allow for a reveal.

I have tuck pointed all of this in but, I dont have a pic at the moment. Now that it is daylight enough to see, I have to go out and get ready for another dmn hurricane.

Long time Gulf,

Liking your brick arch and keystone. Yes, those high alumina bricks kill off the diamond blades. Liking the idea of thin strips of brick for veneer. May thug your idea for my build. Hoping you don't hit too bad the hurricane.
