Default Closing the dome

Continuing courses as we go.
We used a foam form and pre-cut wedges of wood to follow the correct profile.
Completing the dome with the "keystone". I should comment that each row also has a "keystone". The keystone is the last stone cut to fit and lock all other supporting brick.
A shot of supporting the dome from the inside.
Should have heard my choice words attempting to my fat a** in and out of there...
Lastly the arch before we started the flue.
2" foam insulation is an insensible tool for this project. We found the "I-tool" really was not that useful and quit using it after the third course.
