    Got a lot of clean up to do but so far the dome is rising right on the bubble. Let's hope that level continues to be kind to me!

    Thanks that's exactly what I had to do, just exported them to a file and they load fine, I haven't curt the size but I did notice one that wouldn't load and feel sure that's the problem with that one. Thanks again!

    On your Mac in iPhoto, just go to export....you can export them to a folder and cut the size a bit. It works and is fast. Takes seconds to export the JPG file to a more manageable size.

    That will do it.

    You don't need a ball, just keep the tool in to the end when your hole is big enough to get it out, the bricks hold all the way to vertical with both heat stop50 and home brew stick fine, the IT holds the first, then second / first together and I would let this set for maybe 10 minutes and ramble on through the course.

    I'm actually a couple courses further than those pics, I'll be above the arch tomorrow if I get a chance to work on it, if not Friday for sure and hopefully two more courses this weekend. Then remove the tool and get the top of the dome done. Thinking about using an exercise ball for that form, I'll see when I get to that point. Hopefully soon! ;-)

    Looks great, you're on the downhill slide the minute you get to the top of your arch. You're at the part that de-motivated me and gave me an excuse to do a lot of other stuff

    Well I guess I better put forth a few pics. I've been working on the oven as time allows and quite frankly have gotten farther than I thought I would have by now, mostly due to cooperative weather.

    Other than the photos on the prior page I haven't made a tremendous amount of progress, at least that is detectable. Mostly cutting brick etc, should be able to begin the first course of dome this week and begin work on dome arch. Thanks

    I would like to see your build. Find a program to re size them to 800x600

    I do a save as add an a letter to the end of the file name so I keep my original sized photos.

    I'm starting my build. The dead tree had to go first.
