HI all - making quite a bit of progress here, but may need someone else's wisdom to proceed further!! I have reached the 5th ring of the dome fairly easily. I am using just one vane to help me get the correct angle and then not using any shims but simply putting the correct amount of mortar as I go along. It seems to be working so far!! I am building a 42" diameter dome and am aiming for it to be 21" high. The door is 20" across and can now be closed off at 12.5".

I have opted to use the angle iron approach as per many other ovens built however I cannot grasp exactly how the dome bricks (going round and pointing down at quite a steep angle) will now marry the bricks above the door??? How should these now rest on the angle iron? I cannot seem to find details of this process anywhere so any help will be appreciated.

I will start a new thread with photos to show my progress to date if I manage to work out how to upload small pics. I aim to get the whole dome done in the next couple of days if at all possible.

thanks

John
