I was going to recommend that you use a slicker or jointer instead of a tuck pointer but I see two of them in the picture. Nice work.

I tried a grout bag once, very early in my career. It got thrown in the trash after a minute of use.

Hi-V,

The finish is great, but wasn't that a ass-backward way of doing it, and a waste of time and materials?

Absolutly not. As a matter of fact i made more use of the bricks. I doubled the use of each bricks. The time to apply the mortar was about 1 hour, which is nothing. It was well worth it.

If don't have the LIKE button still, but would have given one if I could . I did the same thing with a brick face on mine. I don't see any difference between applying a brick look with thin-set than doing the same with faux stone.

Sorry about that sir,
If, you are questioning: Why not build the entire stand out of brick? That can be done. It would be no sweat for a brick layer. There are plenty of people on this site who could do that now that have some experience with a trial. But, adding a veneer to a block stand already built to the specifications of the FB plans, is within the abilities of the rest of us.

And it also gives us some leeway on what the final look of the oven will be .

Agree. With my brick laying skills, I'd much rather have a concrete stand with brick veneer than a brick stand. And I have to say, IMO tuck pointing is actually easier than laying brick for those of us with not so much masonry experience

oh, and concrete is quite a bit cheaper than brick too...
