I was pretty excited about this part, my first masonry arch!


I was even more excited when I removed the form and it stayed standing!


And then I was even more excited when I found that they now sell Shiner in new Jersey! Its about time!

This is where it is really starting to look like an oven.


I ran out of tan bricks, also lost my circle shape, oh well...


The final bricks go in...


And here is where I will not say that my design strayed from a perfect circle. Instead I will say I planned it to look like an arrowhead. yeah, that's my story and I am sticking to it!


PS: the arrowhead does point due North, well magnetic North anyway. That's gotta count for something.

An outside shot of the completed dome.


Another one.


Ok, that gets me up to today. The plan now is to clean up inside the dome, which will get done by son number 2, because I can't fit inside the opening. Then I will start on the chimney and also on the second outer dome that will be done in old bricks. I will leave a few inches between domes and fill the void with vermiculite for insulation. Will post more pics as I go.

I'm close to VA Tech near Blacksburg. Do you know the dog kennel in Greendell? My Family started that kennel in the late 60's. Such a small world.

I reconfigured the form for the inner arch so I could use it for the outer arch. I wanted the outer arch larger so I had room to fit a door to seal off the inner arch.


Got the outer arch built.


Here is a shot of the lower end of the chimney transition.

Once I finished the outer arch it was Miller time! Well not really Miller, but you know what I mean. While having my first barley pop I got the great idea to start the cycle of curing fires. So I lit a small fire. Was able to get the center of the dome to 200 degrees, and it held 200 degrees as long as the fire stayed burning quickly. As soon as the fire burned down a little, the temp instantly dropped.


It was very cool having my first fire lit! And since it got dark, I walked back about 75 feet and all I could see was the opening of the oven with the flame burning. Very cool indeed.

I also took this picture because I thought the smoke cloud looked cool.
