Try it and report back. A weak vermicrete mix will do the same thing.

KB,

You given any thought of whether you will taper and bevel you dome bricks. If so, I did make an inexpensive jig to cut both the taper and bevel at the same time for a HF cheapo saw or you can look at my thread for pics. Good luck, the fun is beginning.

I'd say that an expansion joint would only be needed if you were to use different materials between hearth and dome. The one between dome and outer arch is to minimise heat bleeding out to an area that doesn't benefit the oven.

As Mr T said "don't overthink it".

Cracks will be cracks, the mechanical design takes care of that too. if the outside is bigger than the inside, it won't fall in!

Good luck!!

Yes Utah, or should I call you by name?
I plan to come up with some type of jig. Somewhere on the forum I saw a nice brand new wet saw that incorporated the vertical adjusts.
I ain,t got that kind of money. I bet it set him back grand or two.

I believe you replied to me a little while back on your jig, which you said you used scrap cuts to set the that angle I was wondering how that work for ya?

I think spending the little extra time to cut those bevel is well worth it. I also been wondering about the rounded floor cuts Iíve seen on the forum; not sure how they were done. I was thinking of making angle cuts to match straight face on the first solder course. Not sure how that would work.

PS.
Thanks everone for the support I was ready to pull my hair out a few days ago. its all coming together now. keep posting

Sorry for repeating myself on the jig. If you are going to taper and bevel as jig is very helpful. since each course, assuming it is symetrical (ie, use a IT) has basically the same taper and angle for that course. A jig helps you make consistent cuts. It work very well for this purpose. If you are not tapering and beveling then the jig is probably not in the cards. As far as the round floors, I did one, you can do it on wet saw by slowing feathering the cut, little slivers. However, if you are not building an igloo style and doing an enclosure, you can build the dome right on the floor bricks and not have to deal with the round floor cuts.

Russell,
No need for apologies.

Of course taper and beveling is in the cards. Call a spade a spade. My perfectionism and anal retentiveness is not obvious by now? Or is my job site not clean enough for ya? lol
