    Starting on my cast entry arch and vent. Here is a pic of the foam form I'll use to build the full form around. Quick job with a 1 1/2" 4'x8' sheet of foam board from Home Depot. Snowed week is supposed to be above freezing. Hopefully get some work done outside next week.

      Terratree, below are three posts where I have discussed IT designs - at least the way I understand how they work. The first is from my build. There are quite a few designs that get your axis of rotation and pivot point at the center of the oven - you just need to be creative. I was inspired by Gulf's design, and cannibalized an old bike rack to get the piece I used for my IT centerpoint. Did you attach a pic of your IT - I didn't see it?
      Also, I built my dome on top of my floor bricks, and had read somewhere of using news paper to keep the dome bricks from adhering to the floor - possibly allowing some float. Don't know if it was needed but as I said I was just following instructions.
      Lastly, I had a couple different versions of the spread sheet, but between my ability to measure an angle and replicate it on my saw I found it easier to just make two cuts on scrap and see if the bricks fit together enough to eliminate the vertical vee.

        I built a canopy under which I dry firewood. It consists of 3 walls and a roof. I thought that one open side is enough, because I will not climb into the very middle of a pile of firewood, but I will take those that I hide. If the weather is wet, then cover the open side with a tarp. It took me a long time to make such a small building for firewood, but while there were warm dry days in winter, I tried out my new cordless tools and assembled this shed literally in a day. Of course, I ordered the wood earlier, it was in my garage so as not to damp it in winter. Now, hopefully, I will always have good dry wood for the stove or for the barbecue.
