You pick up a brick and give it a crack with a hammer, aka snap headers.

BACTERIUM, you have cut me deep. I am "fabby", not FLABBY!

oK, NO MORE BEER FOR ME. I am officially on a diet.

Dadgummit, what am I building a pizza oven for if I am already flabby.

Seriously, thanks for all the comments. I will start my future courses in the middle back to help the bricks to look staggered. Should I continue to use a 1/2 brick to try and keep the joints offset or does that matter?

Fabby, aka Flabby by some,

Like Brickie says, put you best work on the back half, this is really all you can see once you are up and cooking. You can make all your adjustments and corrections of oops on the front half. Continue to stagger your vertical joints. You're on a diet? Tu asked be the other day if I trust a skinny cook?

Just wanted to jump in and say hello. Nice looking build. Don't worry about the Flabby thing...I just got called Mr Virginia. No amount of diet can fix that.

fabby....a.k.a. "flabby"

remember my nikon camera that was in my pocket and stopped working after cutting some bricks. I used compressed air to clean it up and was able to get it working. Retrieved some pics from above. I contacted american express, the cameral was barely a year old, and Amex extends the warranty for those purchases. They contacted Nikon and apparently this camera has had a lot of failure codes like mine had. They decided to give me full credit back rather than repair. I will be off to buy a new camera today

Buying things using Amex is the best for warranty extension. (Disclaimer: I work for Amex ...............gotcha, just kidding

It has been too cold to work the last couple of days, hopefully it will warm up today as I am home early from work.

Thanks for all the comments. I love this place

Nice progress so far - and terrific news about the camera! I am green with envy over you guys getting to work outside already! It is worth it in the end, and your boys will love having friends for a pizza party, mine sure do!
