Apologizes Gulf, I just realized I have not posted anything on your thread. Please allow me introduce myself. I am very impressed by your build. I really like your brick splits…... I hope to incorporate them on my dome enclosure dog house.

I'm sure you've seen the big ones, that may scare Brickie away.

No apologies necessary KB,
It is I who should apologize for not welcoming you on board when you first started your build. The last several months have called for lots of hours at work. I have been checking most nights to review the new posts. I have been watching your build. Great job! When I am not working on mine, my hobby has become watching others progress. There are some brick products out there that would help you give your enclosure the look of real brick. I used flooring splits for my dome. Probably cut a little different than what you want to do. But they would work if you size your cuts to get the most out of each split. If you are looking for a raked joint look, they are a breeze.

Thanks Russell and Stonecutter.

Russell,
That is one "bedonkadonk" that I have been wanting to cover up .

Stonecutter,
I bought precut flooring splits for the dome.

I have cut some of my own on the 10" saw to mix in but, that requires two cuts to get a face split. Not that hard to do but, I needed to save a little time for other chores.

Yeah, like a double ramp sink and bar stools.

Gudday Gulf
Just saw you brick splits , amazing, never seen any thing like those before. Certainly makes the job of covering the dome nice and neat.
I'm covering my dome with brick as well but a bit more of a rustic effect as I'm using a brick bulster. Takes some time .... But what the hell with the oven I have all the time in the world to fiddle along as I wish.
I inspired by those brick splits as I still have to tile the surface around the oven...might even have to use a brick saw after all this time.
Regards dave

Bunnings used to sell them in the tile section, failing that try a tile shop.

My mate cuts them for Boral.

Dave,
The splits that I have are all face cuts. They are a little rough, uneven, and different sizes. The interior cuts of the brick are usually identical thicknesses. In my neck of the woods most floors and a few counters tops are done with the interior cuts. The face cuts are more difficult to install for an even finish. But that is what I wanted for the dome to keep with the old brick look.
I hope Brickie's lead helps you find the right product for you .

I do like love the look of your brick oven and chimney. I can only admire the work that has gone into it, and especially the fitting of the dome brick with a brick set .

It is really looking great!

Well, I almost had this post finished and accidently closed the d@mn window.

I knew that the tear drop was coming because of the lack of inverted v's forming in the head and bed joints where the dome meats the chimney.

Oh well, just fix it and go on. It's hidden under a shelf anyway.


The hole in the middle is a 1" threaded pvc fitting for the vent.

I kept the joints raked and swept as I applied the splits. Unless someone looks real close they would think that it is finished. And that is the way the dome will probably look for some time. I intend to tuck point the joints but, not before a few other things get done.

Gulf,

Looks very fine, seems you can't get away from building some type of brick dome............you see those maters being grown in AZ? My seedlings are beginning to do well.
