Thanks John. I bought one of those 10 x 10 canopies so the rain is not an issue for me now. I bought it because it seems like that FB Board could possibly soak up the water and that would not be good. I hope to get the 4,5 and 6 course done by Sunday.

I'm still winging stuff, but all in all it seems to be working out. I changed my first indispensable tool. I found that it just was not gonna cut it. I borrowed the idea for the new one from yours. Its adjustable and works well. Thanks

Happy Fathers Day to all you fathers out there! I have a question! I got my inner arch done and am starting my 5th course. The inverted V's are starting to develop when laying out a few dry bricks.

I read a lot of threads last night. First off...you guys are patient. Some are extremely patient and it shows in the dome.

Is there a formula to cutting and beveling? Or do most just eye ball it? Do you always use half bricks all the way up and the angle and bevel just increases?

Thanks

Wow,

Full speed ahead, I am going notoriously slow. Tscarbough pointed out to me on my build to try and make the closer brick bigger ay making taking some of the brick next to closer to make it bigger and not a chip. I am passing this valuable tidbit on to you for your future chains. Good luck.

Flyfisherx,

Attached is a bevel/taper table from JCG31 it is a good baseline. Why reinvent the wheel.

My cuts got a little better for the fifth course. Hopefully will get even better on the 6th. My mortaring skills evolved for the better on my last 8 or so bricks on the 5th course.

I took out the inner arch form and need to do some cleanup tomorrow on it. I am building a 36 inch oven. I used the plans dimensions for a 19 inch opening wide by 12 inch high. I actually measure from the floor 12 1/4 high by 18 3/4 wide. It looks high to me. It looked too small with the form in place. Now it looks too high . It does fit within the ratio of dome height to opening. My actual dome height may end up being 19". We will see.

Any one else out there with a 36 inch oven and 12 inch or so high arch? Any issues.

Well I got the 6th course in today. I had to make a run to buy 80 more bricks. I also enjoyed the pool with the family between cuts and mortaring. I am planning on getting the 7th done tomorrow and get past the arch! Think I might need to go to third bricks for this course to keep my joints staggered.
