This is just a suggestion, but I think it helps with the smoking out of the front. In the shaded area, I cut my brick on a chamfer, and you could do the same with a grinding wheel pretty easily at this point.

Thank you. It is on the inside to help smooth the airflow out of the oven into the vent. Don't take it to a point, leave 1/2" to 3/4" width on the outside of the arch and just chamfer inward from there.

The surprise (to me) was on the upper courses when the angle of the bricks needed to decrease (after increasing slightly for each of several courses) and the bevel suddenly increased! Definitely cut a few, dry set, adjust, mortar, repeat.

Looking Good!
I spent all last Saturday trying to start a new course. I had not placed the first brick previous, and tried to start up and go. After jostling the "first brick" three times (and having to re-start), I finally placed it and walked away for 3 hours. once it was solid it all became much easier.

Russell
Have you done a mockup of your finish of your corner build? i am looking to steal some ideas because i am stuck on my corner build. I wish i would have poured my hearth flat at the corner like yours. DJ had a good idea on mine to pour concrete and flatten it out. Anyway, any help appreciated and will be credited.

I have one more course to go then a plug. I plan to use 4 blocks per brick for the last course. That leave the plug - I think the diameter on the dome side will be < 4-1/2" I have been toying with the idea of using the grinder to bring the opening to a perfect circle before forming the plug.
