Slloooowww, day today. Marrying the arch and course 3 kick my @#$, lots of trips to the HF saw. Now I understand GianniF's concept of "shaving" a brick. Came close to over cutting a couple times. Bet I walked a couple miles back and forth to the saw. But it is done. Having a martini now.............

Why isn't the saw next to the oven?

OK, take this as advice, not criticism, but the joints next to the arch are stacking vertically. Why not cut a few further away so that you are leaving the closer as a full or near full brick.

Russell, a angle grinder might prove to be a big help with those course to arch joints. I took mine out yesterday. What a big difference with precision. If you look at Gianni's build photos.....you can see the angle grinder in some. Try it out. Rough cut it with the HF wet saw and precision it with an angle grinder. It works wonders.

I just noticed those are the arch brick. In the words of Rosanna-Rosanna-Danna, "Nevermind".

FlysiherEx,

Duh, on my end, had my diamond cub grinder and grinder sitting in the garage. Guess I got caught up in the moment with the saw. Hit me over the head with a brick................

I was going to build my arch first (before dome) but after reading the last few posts I can see the value of using their width when transitioning dome to arch AND also to assist with avoiding vertical joints (stacking) in the dome.

I guess you don't see the inner arch (outer edge) anyway
