Nice video Warren, but it appears that your design lacks any insulation under the floor. If this is so you will have difficulty getting and keeping high temps in the floor.

Your oven look amazing, you should be proud. I do agree with David though in regards to the insulation under the floor. If you havenít insulated the floor you could always lift the floor up, (thatís if the solider course isnít sitting on top of the oven floor which it doesnít seem to be) and put some insulation board under the floor. It will raise the hight of the floor and you will still have the soliderís directly on concrete but it will be better then nothing. It will also put out the dome hight to opening height ratio which is usually about 63%.

Lot of work but look how much work you have put into it already. One more thing, I donít know if that kind of heat will degrade the structural slab underneath over time. I will leave that to someone who knows about concrete to answer that.
