None of the caulks I've tried, and I've tried quite few, remain elastic at anything exceeding 350 C. They all go brittle or burn. Can you suggest a brand that works?

Thanks guys for all the good advice.

Solid voussoirs, good point. I was impatient and choose to not cut them after cutting all those fire brick. With my cut to fit approach I must have made well over 2000 cuts on the fire brick for the dome and inner and outer arches After finishing the decorative oven arch. I thought I was ok with the out come. I did not want to tear it down and move backwards, the teardown would have destroyed more than just the arch. Looking back I kind of wish I would have cut them. I still think it turned out nicely. Maybe not by a Roman stonecutter's perception . Thanks for you rsupport I value your opinion.

As for chaulk, caulk , wahtever We all make mistakes. Backer rod very good point I wish I would have learned this a little earlier In my build. Thanks for the insight. I hope all my caulking holds up as it is all covered up now. A good paint job is my only hope. I used this high temp caulk for the heat break. seems to be holding up well.Kaowool Caulk Details

As far as my counters go it will be a while. I need to finish the painting, close up the screen enclosure, Pressure wash and paint the whole patio area and replace all the furniture. Thanks Utah, for the info and all the links. makes it much easier to sift thru. This sight also has a lot of good info maybe you can include links like these on your countertop thread.

Thanks all time to get to work.

Painting of patio and oven almost complete.......After the countertops are placed, the wife and I will decide on the backsplash tile. I'm not sure how the colors for the counter will turn out so we will have to wait...... I have not put on the chimney extension yet, I was hoping I could get away from using it, I really like the lower profile. Although the screen is flame resistant I want more clearance.

Bartman,
Very nicely done. Your build certainly adds a focal point to your caged pool area. You still have lots of room for parties and guests.

I think a handmade terra cotta tile would look great on that...or a Noce unfilled tumbled travertine.

Congratulations. That is quite a project and I am sure that whatever you decide to finish it with will be as tastefully done as the rest of the job. An aspirational and inspirational build!

I hope it brings many memorable gatherings.
