    Re: Locating the arch????

    I'd like to thank Cheesecake for starting this thread. You saved me a ton of grief and work. I had not thought about the placement of the arch inside the dome. I only measured the opening and height.

    Since reading this post I have re-designed my opening. During the redesign I noticed that the distance of the arch from the center of the oven is dependent on the curve selected. The closer the arch is to the center the wider the horizontal opening which must be compensated by the arch side walls.

    I am building a corner oven so my landing will be longer due to the diagonal of my stand so I needed a longer oven landing. In the attached you'll see the two versions of the 44" oven (round and oval). The oval will be more like the Neapolitan style even though the dimensions make it more of a hybrid. Using the oval I have a opening to height ration of .63. The 44" Premio2G has a ratio of .65 so I should be OK. I think I'll cut out some cardboard templates as a double check.

    I laid out the floor last weekend and I will start the dome this weekend.

    Hopefully all my readings in this forum will help me avoid more major mishaps.

      Other than a hemispherical arch being inherently strong I think the arch being tied into the dome well prevents spreading too.

      Wow you have a great location for your oven. Do you have any wider angle views of where it is? And how are you planning to finish the exterior?

        Thanks Chip. Here is my build thread.

        I keep changing my mind on how I'm going to finish it so I haven't done any work on it for a couple of months but it is cooking great pizza and bread.

        I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.
