Default Re: 36" in Seattle

Key stone halves.

Also, I finally broke my entry arch by smacking it with my head while entering the oven to clean off the mortar. Sigh. The mortar seems to chip off the exposed faces relatively easily so I think I can clean the joints and rejoin them without too much trouble...although I have already broken a second adjacent joint while attempting to chip-clean one of the initial breaks. Guess I was too rough with the screw driver. UGH! Slow and steady...slow and steady...

BTW, any thoughts on this are welcome. Should this not have happened or is a lateral hit such as I described (which is clearly not along the axis of support) with small faces of connection such as those shown in the photo a fair cop for a break without any associated wrong-doing?...or did I mix or otherwise use the mortar incorrectly?

Bear in mind, these are very old joints, thoroughly set. Weeks, literally.

What you mean is, you wish you had broken your entry arch trying to do it.

Thanks.

Cheers!

Zing! I've been following your thread but I hadn't memorized whose it was, so your ID didn't trigger a recognition. Your oven is very original.

Cheers!

Rebuilt the broken entry arch. Cut the bricks for the vent. Started mortaring the vent bricks in.
