Russ,

Everything is looking great. I am glad that the anchor method is working well for you. You will be done with the dome shortly. When you place the final keystone on the dome, it is going to feel like you are on top of a mountain and it is an awesome feeling. Keep up with the good work.

It always fun to see fellow WFO builders appoarching a big goal.

Crikey Russell, its rain, rain, rain here! You guys need some?
Had a couple of days where i've got out, and laid more of the rest of my Garden Cooking experience. But since then, more rain, and no photo oppos.

I believe we're gonna get some of that sunny dry stuff that's been over the states soon. It'll be sand storms and brushfires in a couple of weeks!

I found this was facinating as well when I built mine dvm:

Sometimes, no bevel-cuts and maybe a slight thickening of the rear of the brick is all that is needed to complete that row in the correct angle to get to next row and eventually close the dome.

Russell,
Your oven's looking good. Nice joints and it looks like you are cleaning up a bit as you go. It will be much harder after it dries so try to keep up with it. Good work.

Sound like the mortar did set but you just went out of town with the rubber mallet. The mortar can only handle so much. Instead of using mortar, you can give Krazy glue a shot.

Russell,

It looks great! Nice work! I hope I can keep mine as good as yours.

Pizzas in a few more weeks?!

If I had it to do again I would try this technique that Tscarborough shared on post #37 of DTHERR's build (Dtherr Build in Mississippi).

Hey Russell,

My build is still moving but just not as fast as I had hoped. I pulled the forms and supports off yesterday after pouring my hearth slab last week. I need to take photos and update my build thread so that I don't look like such a slacker.

End of august or labor day sounds great. Good luck!

Nate

Don't acid wash the interior. If you just have a light film, use vinegar straight, but I wouldn't worry about it too much.
