Wiley, thanks for all the input. I'll make sure the surface doesn't dry out.

Thanks again.

Yo kebwi, if you do want to float your hearth slab, I heard that you can rent a float instead of buying one. (not cheap to buy)

Yeah, that's part of why I didn't bother buying one. Actually, I bought a simple steel float, then returned it, then decided I'd make my own wooden one, then didn't and didn't use it.

Whatever, I'll figure something out for the hearth. It's no big deal.

I went down the same road. I made my own wooden one but it didn't work very well. There might be some knack to it also, but I ended up just troweling it as best I could. My hearth slab was more or less even and level, but I really wasn't pleased with it. I had seen many other builds with smoother slabs than mine. But it still didn't matter because it's all covered up!
