I dont have a brick saw and was thinking about splitting the bricks for my dome. I have split about fifty so far and 60% are pretty even, but some split about a 3/8 " off center. Is this a big deal when the the outside layer will be covered with mortar? the smooth face is on the inside for the appearance, but will some this lead to uneven distribution of heat later on?
