Default Trial runs....

Laid out the full sized bricks to find out how many I needed. These are the better ones that will be the first course.

Default Arch form too!

Made my arch form for the oven 20 inches wide, 13 inches high.

What about a rustic brick look?

Default bag vs redimix

I needed one yard for the hearth pour...

mimimum delivery is for 2 yards

...so I'm looking where I can pour another yard
...to avoid mixing up 40 - 50 bags
...and the Chiro bill!

Default Re: Ben and Mia's Oven

You know Dave, I should probably just go back and get a couple of tons of the recycled concrete sand and gravel mix......$12 plus some portland $30...and it would be about $50 too!

did you mix by hand or have a mixer?

Nice to have the record here@!

Hope everyone is doing well.
