It will all work out fine. I did not adjust for the size of the wood below my ID tool that was 3/8". I made an adjustment about the 10th chain and all worked out good!

oops, I forgot about the 3/4" wood on the bottom.
I guess my dome interior height would be around 22".
It should not make that much difference.

Finally done with the dome and ready to start the outer arch and flue entrance.
The inside dome looks pretty cool.

- Nice job. How is the arch and vent going to go?

I plan on building the vent area and arch from the fire brick and then use a row of insulating brick prior to the clay flue liner.
Right now I am starting at about a 22" wide x 8" ( inside dimensions)deep gathering area for the vent. I am going to take this up above the inner arch a few brick before the thermal break using the insulating brick. At this point I hope to have the opening 8" x 8" to match the flue pipe.
I am wondering if I should go higher with the larger area prior to closing it in to 8"x8"?

Default More progress

I finished the outter arch of the vent area in about an hour today.
I hope to have the vent and flue liner done within a week. Keep running out of daylight.

I didnt want to lose more heat from the oven by adding more heat to the clay flue as well as the rest of the chimney. The flue liner and outter finish stone will meet at the top of the chimney.
I know I would not lose too much here but the thermal break using insulating brick will help stop the transfer of heat above the insulating brick.
Here is a pick of that area I just finished yesterday.
I cut a seat into the insulating brick for the 8x12 (6.5 x 10 interior size) clay flue liner. I installed it today but dont have any pics because I wrapped it up in a tarp for now.

More pics of the smoke gathering area transitioning into the chimney.



Also, a night light glowing in the dome. It was getting cold here last night and I wanted to keep the mortar from getting too cold. The light kept the dome at a comfortable 60 degrees over night.

This is a top view of the insulating brick thermal break isolating the flue liner from the beginning of the chimney. You can see the seat I cut out of the insulating brick to accept the clay flue liner.

I installed the 12 x 8 clay flue pipe on the insulating brick, it fit in the seat nicely with room to add cement all the way around.
This may be it until spring. The whole thing is wrapped up in a tarp as the wind was getting to be too much for the canopy cover I was using. We got about an inch of snow a few days ago, too much for it to handle so we took it down today.
