On the IR thermometer, it may be too late now but I got one that goes to about 1250 degree Fahrenheit. When the dome is coming up to temperature I read about 1050 degrees at the top of the dome. But then it cools off to under 1,000

So you'll probably be fine with one that reads to 1,000 - but you might find the slightly higher temp one useful if you haven't bought it already

I would like stone but I'm trying to keep cost down.

Today I'm building the forms for the chimney arches. I hope to make some much needed progress. August get together planned

Nice dome, seems there are a few finishing presently. It looks great, nice tight fitting bricks.

Must ask where's the head in the oven photo. I'm told it is a ritual.

next photo posted must be the body in the oven shot.

Thanks Colin,

This is purely ritualistic. I crawled back in , I didnít get any pictures when setting the keystone and cleaning the inside of dome, I was scared then and only put one arm and head in. This time itís official, both arms.

Finished the outer arch chimney support form today, and bought some insulating brick to set the arches on.

I got a little accomplished today.......I set the form, it took awhile the face of my inner arch was tilted so it made leveling and squaring difficult.

I also cut some brick and did some dry fitting. I'm beginning to realize the cost of my cut to fit approach, aka. "Geometry for dummies". I'm just wore out my fourth blade. I hope just one more at the $60 bucks a pop, although I should return my buddy his saw with a new one on it.

What are the dimensions of the entry? Looks like about 22" wide and maybe 16" high. No guess as to how deep. Glad you are ahead of me in your build as I have learned a great deal following your thread. Bruce
