Redneck Dave needs a little friendly help.
 
Since I covered my inner arch with a piece of angle iron and mortar..... I now need some help.
:rolleyes:
I want to recreate the look of bricks in that spot.
So...I figured I would just slice a brick into 1/2 "tiles" and mortar them on.
Thereby bringing back the look of my old arch.

Now here's the rub. My tile saw can't cut a full brick. I can only cut part way through each side, and finish the cut with a hammer.

So I was hoping one of you kind people would cut a few bricks up for me. I need about 20 slices.

Of course I would play for the bricks, packaging, and shipping. And maybe a Pizza Hut gift card or something..... :)

Anyways.. Help! :eek:

Check the pawn shops in the area and look for construction sites with brick going up. You may be able to find some help locally.

Dave, do you have a brick now you are trying to match?

You can get veneer brick in many colors and style at the local yards.

Seems like you shouldn't have to ship bricks....

I didn't think of that! :rolleyes:

I was just trying to match the firebrick, but good tip.
I will just visit the brick store. :cool:

Thanks

Dave,

Our local firebrick yard sells firebrick splits (thin firebricks). Our local small-town hardware store even carries a few for fireplace repairs. Check your local refractory supply places. The splits are about the same price as whole bricks, but you would save a fortune on shipping.

I would be happy to cut you some firebrick splits if you are desperate, but the shipping cost is going to be painful.

I appreciate it.

I will do some checking this week to see what I can come up with.
