How to build chimney and outer arch
 
Hi, I'm building from a kit ( http://www.pizzaovens4u.com/download...Stepbystep.pdf ) but I'm considering building my own chimney and arch from red brick rather than firebrick or the vermiculite structure supplied with the kit. Has anyone got plans for the outer arch and chimney structure ? And can anyone comment on my idea please ?
Thank
Richard

RichC,
Welcome to the forum……….Hope ya don’t mind me stepping in on the thread.........Here's a question I feel is fitting for this thread and also a good starting topic…………. How much chimney will a hearth slab support that is 3 1/2" thick with 1/2" rebar on 8" square centers?

Thanks guys, I've only recently discovered this forum and its a treasure trove of information and experience. I always thought this site was just about selling a particular brand!!! Glad I found it when I did as I'm just about ready for the supporting slab
Thanks KB! That probably would have been one of my next questions:)

Just open another window and find the thread that you want to link to. In this case the first page of your build. Left click on the browser link at the top of the page and copy (control c on the keyboard).

Go back to the "reply to thread" window and type in a few identifying words like Dave's Build. Highlight those words and then click on the icon at the top of the page that looks like the earth with a paperclip. It will bring up a box that will let you paste the link(control v on the keyboard) and attach the link to the highlighted words :). A word of warning though :rolleyes:. Always go to the review post and check out the link before submitting. If you made a mistake and the last thing you copied was,............ say like calendergirls.com it could be embarassing :D

A hell of a lot more than you can build your chimney high. :D
Ive got 100mm of concrete and the chimney stack is over 2M above the top of the oven.

The main problem most ppl forget about is sideways buttressing to stop the entry arch from pushing down and out.
