I can't say anymore than has already been said already, but WOW . I am very much, looking forward to you finale for the vent cover and the flu.

I haven't worked with copper to a large extent. Just as a flashing from time to time and as roofs over a couple of bay windows. In each of those cases, we just installed, and left things to age naturally. Are you going to use any of the recomendadions on the net for speeding up the process?

I'd try the homebrew on something besides your masterpiece and see how it works... test it for a year! By that time, your dome will have naturally changed to a less reflective aged surface. There is so much "crap" floating around in the air right now, cannot do much more to make it oxidize quicker.
Anyway, what's the rush?

Have you seen any strange lights at night criss-crossing the sky? They probably think your dome is a juvenile ufo that got lose and needs to be brought back into the fold.

Hey, I just wanted to mention that I enjoy your posts and love your oven. I'm here in American Fork and starting up a build. I want to do a 42" corner oven like yours and while I have read the posts, seen the pictures, and downloaded the manual, I'm wondering if you have any global recommendations to make? I am a bit overwhelmed by all the alternatives, can I follow the manual pretty closely?

TIA

Good advice, boiled down to a few key facts. For me, I think cutting the bricks into a circle inside the dome was a good introduction to brick cutting, and i might add... make yourself an "IT". It will help you in more ways than you can count.

But make it right I will add chip. I.e arm of IT must be centred on brick face.

Never heard that one. I've always heard of vinegar, salt and ammonia.

If you delete the salt, it makes a great glass cleaner.

Pee might work, but on an oven? Why not just let it age on its own? Best results would be to degrease it first so you don't have ugly fingerprint marks that age quicker. Oil and wax remover used for prepping for paint might clean it nicely.

Don't try to fool us! Chilling and relaxing? Bet you'll be tinkering before long with something! Got all your tools made? How about a place to neatly display and store them? And that detail for covering the stainless chimney....but that is a ball of worms (once you start covering, where does it end? storm flashing...and how do you keep it all in proportion to the beauty you have now?) If you are at all like the rest of us tinkers...mind never rests even while sleeping!

Have a great party and best wishes to your wife on her birthday!
