A Forno is born - Escondido, CA
We finished the dome yesterday
after a four day effort
(the base was poured a few weeks ago)
I would like to thank FB forum members
for all the cumulative knowledge here
what a great resource
Our oven is being built at La Milpa Organica farm
in Escondido California
We have outgrown the three-year old clay oven
you can see in the background of one of the build photos
We are hoping to have it insulated and clad tomorrow (done)
and baking a week later
Longer term we plan to put a tile mosaic mural on it
The bricks were laid without using a form
We found that a protractor cut to the shape of the dome's inside contour was helpful in positioning and supporting bricks as they were laid
I didn't see this nifty device while reading the forum so
perhaps here's my contribution to the art:
Z shaped sheet metal clips tied to a 18" long string with a brick counter weight on the other end that hooked to the newly set bricks
The clips held the bricks in place for a few minutes while the mortar set
my phpGraphy site
The Duratech anchor plate was attached using both expanding anchors
(only lightly but snugly set) and Tapcon screws. This seemed a straightforward solution and the bricks did not seem too brittle for the fasteners.
Again thank you everyone here
for you help

Great job - I should have patented the BS, but hey, if it works, lets use it! The use of the clip is absolutely brilliant! I thought I was outside the box using hot melt glue....
