Brick Oven Detailing
I recently was able to reuse the same arch form on two very different brick oven projects. In addition, I used two-by lumber to maintain the plane of the face of each arch (and support a cantilevered brick shape until the shelf and wall above it were in place.
Forms can be varied and useful, whether for pouring a monolithic base, forming the structural slab or the insulating slab on which the oven is built, or for supporting masonry that will complete the facade of the oven.
