      Some have slightly rounded the top edges of the floor brick/tiles. I have found that, over time, the sharp square edges round naturally with use.

        What's the size of your floor tiles? I can draw a few options.

          The fire bricks are 18 x 18 mark.. 4 big squares.. I got 1 square for the flue galley.. and 1 extra brick if one broke in shipping... so I have a total of 6 @ 18 x 18 fire bricks
          I don’t mind the way it is... was trying to minimize cutting these things... they look very hard to cut... they are 3 inches thick... very heavy.. and all the edges pretty good.. sides flat... I have graft paper but don’t have a drawing compass... I’ll get one soon and try play around on paper.. thanks mark appreciate it...

          I am cutting my foundations form today... and cleaning up foundation area.. be pouring slab soon... mahalo

            got my 2x6 slab form done... painter is one of my many jobs so I have lots of paint stuff... painted and clear coated my concrete slab form so concrete can’t stick to it...

            painted my oven template and cleared coated it.. tomorrow I’ll will perfectly cut out the outer black line... this outer black line is 4 inch foamglas and 2 inch CalSil line cut 2 inches past my cast dome.. this way my 2 inch of fire blanket can rest on the glass foam and calsil and not touch the concrete table... the grey line is my 2 1/2 cast dome... thank for all the help and guidance... aloha

                Here ya go Boogie - I've drawn your drawing to scale. From that, I realised that you did not have a 'lip' for the door to seat against. Not sure if that's intentional or not. So, I've drawn an alternative which only makes the landing 2 inches deeper. But, if you do create a door 'lip' then that will push your landing width wider (on the outside arch) than your inner arch 18" width, so that brings me neatly back to the idea of using your six floor tiles on the diagonal which solves that problem nicely. I've used your 10.5" door height, but on the outer arch that will, of course, be 1 inch higher than the inner arch. Happy to add dimensions but, really, it's all as per your drawing - except for the door arch changes, of course.

                Let me know what you think!

ID:	435792 Aloha Mark nice work!!! .. thank you.... I like it... my only concern is that there is a bit of cutoff waste and a few more perfectly straight cuts to preform (worried about cutting this stuff)... but looks very good... I am wondering if I cut one of those entry bricks and flip it over, is there enough left to make the other side thus saving cutting another brick... all in all I did ok with the bricks and shipping cost.. and I could probably figure out something to do with the cutoff left overs... so pretty keen to give it a go... I have a tile setter buddy with all the saws he is going to help me cut these beasts... I’ll send your plan over to him.. my confidence is low cutting perfect lines in such thick heavy brick...

                  I am planning to cast in 2 sessions as advised my David... quote from david s “It is far easier to cast the dome with an oven mouth plate set in place, then remove it when the cast has set, then make the flue gallery mould in front of the oven mouth. This method also makes a better rebate for the oven door to sit against”” end quote; that’s from serge’s build.... my dome cast is 2 1/2 inches thick.. so going to make a door mold that thickness... my flue galley cast will be 2 inches thick and give me the 1/2 door reveal..

                  I have a lot of time to work this out as I’ll be pouring my foundation slab soon... thanks Mark Aloha

                    Hi Boogie. Yes, you'll easily get those pieces out of one tile, with some spare! I only drew it that way because it was easy. LOL I can draw the cuts from the one tile for you.

                      A recent build I'm on shows how you can cast a shallow flue gallery. There's plenty of room near the top to accomodate the flue pipe because as it gets closer to the top of the dome you have more room at the back of the gallery.. Pics tell the story. You could easily halve the depth the gallery that Mark's drawing provides.
