3 more working days and the dome and arch are done! Next Sunday I'll get the smoke chamber and flues finished. Also It was dark by the time I finished tuck pointing the interior and installing the plug so I'll have to get pics and post them of the finished interior later. The in process stuff looks rough to me.

Wow that was fast. 3 days to do the dome? Really? It looks beautiful, I wish I could build one that fast.

Thank you very much guys! Yeah 3 long days, I like to put in 10 hour days, I have 1 Saturday and 2 Sundays building the dome Solo. Really if you build yourself a quality indispensable tool then it goes really fast. Also something that might help everyone is that when dealing with small pieces of brick like this masons trowels are actually too big and cumbersome to work with. I much prefer a Margin Trowel, they are much more efficient with little squares of firebrick.

Nic,

Fantastic proportions to your dome! Can you share the inside height of the dome as well as the dimensions of your inner arch? The inner arch looks slightly wider, to accomodate that massive 50" girth!

John,

The inside height of the dome is spot on 18 inches, and the inner arch is 11.5 inches, doing my best to stick to proven height ratios there. The inner door width is 24 wide and the arch on the top is the exact same radius as the the oven so that the forms would look complimentary.


Ikhan42,

Forno does not have plans for an elliptical dome Pompeii oven, but if memory serves me right all of their modular kit ovens have a very elliptical profile to them. This oven is technically a half ellipse, looking strictly at the cross section of the dome. The best illustration of the dome's shape are the quick Cad drawings in my first post. As for the footprint, it is a perfect 50" circle, nothing elliptical about it.

The edge of the dome is really quite close to the fence in one of the pictures, do you think it could pose a problem? If not with the actual heat from the dome what about the heat of the chimney gasses? I'm currently on a build with a similar problem and I still am not 100% happy it will be safe but in the end if I think it's a problem I'll remove the fence and build a wall. Would rather not though as the cost of my build is already way over target!
