Tony, do you have any pictures?

From what I can tell, the angle and location of when and where the course bricks meet the arch changes based on the location of the arch (how deep into the circle the arch is), the radius of your oven and dome height. If your arch is too far away from your circle...I'm not sure how that's going to work while maintaining a circle with each course. Maybe the bottom will look like a teardrop and you can slowly bring it back to round as you go up?

A teardrop is a pretty good description. I did manage to get it back to round and closed the oven up.
Thx

I'm sure a teardrop is common, mine did the same thing. It's at the front of the oven and nobody will notice.
Hey it may even help channel the smoke flow.

Wanted to post the latest pic. The brickwork and chimney are all done. Now need to enclose the back and put a roof on it.

Tony.

Very nice, I like the look with different levels... Can't wait to see what it looks like without the forms!

I agree! The multiple levels really looks nice. This really caught my wife's eye. Please be sure to post follow up photos!

I really like that. What is the finish material going to be on the horizontal sections? Very cool.

I am going to frame metal studs with wonderboard around the perimeter. Then create trusses up from there to the chimney and cover it with galvanized roofing. Plan have have the roof come forward about a 1 - 1.5 feet in front of the oven. THen cover all the wonderboard with split bricks. Roofing has a slate shake look to it.

I think it will look OK.
