Only in english is "peasant" derogatory. It comes from the French paysan(ne), or someone from the countryside. What we know as a farmer. The US press is fond of calling our local country people "farmers" and those in other countries "peasants". If a reporter were to write that the US political process is held hostage to the interests of the peasantry, he'd be linched.

This link will take you to drawings for the arch, the floor space from back of arch to front of oven is 14.5", because the back of the arch was trimmed to conform to the dome curve and the front of the floor extends one inche beyond the arch. The 11.5" illustrated is from the front of where the door will be to the front of the arch.

Happy building!

Your arch drawing looks lovely.

I would just comment, that you may want to consider an alteration. The arch will be stronger if the bricks are cut to taper and the mortar joints kept to a minimum. The idea being that it will be freestanding on it own, even if the mortar fails.

This is a very good idea. I'm learning the hard way.
