I will take pics in the am. I had to lay the floor 2 times. The stand was level and the insulation appeard uniform but the floor still required some leveling to be perfect. It had a slope to it and likely nobody would have noticed or cared but me. But it is now perfect and the first course should be set in the am

Any picture editor will reduce picture size. I use irfanview. It's free and easy to use.

So I was trying to figure out how to conquer that aggressive angle and I attached a quarter brick set back 2 1/4 inches which allows the first coarse to rest on this brick instead of just mortar. My build is a bit messy and I don't think I will win oven of the year or anything. I am just hopeful for tasty pizzas and other yummy food.

The basic dome is finished. My hats off to a lot of you who have really great looking joints and masonry. Mine is a bit rough but I was able to do all of the cuts with a stone hammer and a set. I really tried with my tile saw but the clearance was too small and required too many passes. The wife would have had a seizure if I bought a new tile saw so.... The rough look it is.

I started a new thread on roof design. I am looking for some design help for a roof on the corner install. I am hoping for something a little more appealing than the simple shed.

Also, I used the Thermal Ceramics "Smoothset" and it looks like it is working well. The areas that have set the longest are rock hard. I will let you know more in a few weeks when I can get the fire going.
