Looking Great there Bee've,
I started looking around a couple of days ago for my inner arch template. I found it on my trailer which was bound for the dump. You may be able to put yours back together allowing for the saw cuts for a perfect door template .

Good work Russell. The picture from the inside is awesome. Will your next row 7 go over the top or will it be row 8? Crossing the top is both scary and very rewarding, I think you'll do fine job.

Looking real good. I still have my arch template, I have used it to build 4 doors. This last one looks to work though.

Any tip welcome, small bricks, large bricks?

Looking at your pics from the 07/04/12 from the inside shot. It looks like just some really small droop next to arch on course 5. Those arch tie-ins will lie to you. Will your IT lock on plane? i.e (lock so it is set on a level horizontal plan) that will really help keep them level. Gianni advised me to even tilt them up slightly and i still had some droop. That may be what is giving you grief on tieing in 6.

I didn't really "plan" the thermal break. I wanted to include one, but couldn't wrap my head around how to do it when i started. It worked out good i think. I like Tscars comment about the size. They don't have to be that big, only 1/8 to 1/4". I went with 3/8 to have margin for error. My inner arch was not exactly vertical. It protrudes slightly towards the top. I found some 3/8" braided square rope gasket that i think will work good. I plan on multiple layers of the stuff to seal all that hot stuff coming out of the oven. The breaks get tricky at the top of the vent for me since i have to transition back towards the oven. I didn't want a deep vent and the increased reach into cooking floor. It is a long way already.

I am super impressed with your build.Your arch transitions look great, and working in that heat (with I suspect ultra-fast setting mortar) adds to the challenge.
Keep up the good work!

Great work Russell! I am pretty sure there is now no way I will ever catch you. Your work looks great. I just hope I can do half as well as you.

Hi,

I have have enjoyed your build progress and have been learning a lot.

Thanks for your angle-bevel tool pics. I modeled mine after yours. I still have to gain some experience in setting the angles correctly.
