"Jambs",............."Carpenter" huh,

It's all right by me. I grew up in a carpenter family. We built homes from the foundation up. That meant: footers, slab, septic tanks, fraiming, roofing, fireplaces, wiring, BBQ pits, etc. etc.

It ain't easy "meshing" all the "trade names" + the "local terms" in to my posts, as well .

Gulf, actually I am a 32 yr. veteran mason building his first oven. Should be fun and go fairly quick for me. Building it at my summer home on weekends at a campground. Sorry about the construction slang, lol Wayne

I also like the appearance of a semicircular opening but I also wanted a large opening to allow me to slide turkeys and beer can chickens through the entry way. So I compromised...

I created a semicircular opening on the outer arch (where you can see it) and a shallower arch with vertical "jambs" on the inside to maximize my opening size. I think my inner arch is 12.5" tall x 20" wide (10" vertical jambs) and my outer semicircle is 13.5" tall x 22" wide.

Good luck and post some pictures.

Regards,
AT
