Hah! I was planning on following your lead! The landing is only 2.5" thick. Must look deeper in picture due to the forms. But it's still gonna weigh 200 pounds. Will be fun to flip and install!

An upside down pour! This opens up lots of possibilities. I can't wait to see what you have in mind .

DJ
That looks great. You will have great results for sure. I keep thinking that this should get easier after i got past the dome. NOT! keep up the good work.
What did you decide to do at the retaining wall/counter top joint?

Yeah Gulf,

I wanted to do this type of pour but would not work out with my layout. DJ can really place his accents where he want, me I am at the mercy of whether I can float them in at the right depth and keep em there.

Now I feel a little sheepish. I wasn't planning to use any aggregate or anything. I think my imagination is failing me. Ideas for accents?

Tracy - I think I am going to do what you suggested, use a piece of flatstock bar at the joint. I may just cast the thing with the metal already installed. Not sure what it would do to the polishing pads though.

Hey DJ,

I did not mean to put up on the spot. It is your build. But if you are interested, Cheng goes over accents on some of his YouTube videos. It is at least worth looking at. Even one or two color stones/crystals/fossils or accent could add bang to you hearth.

funny you should mention "fossil" Russel. I tamped in a small limestone fossil at the back of the oven - just to see how it would turn out after grinding.
I never saw it again

Probably should have used solids, but that was a sh!tload of cutting! I hope this works.

It fit! I am pretty happy with the results. I am amazed how much mortar one uses with regular bricks! About 100 pounds just to do that. Course, I had a coule of restarts...

You don't want to use solids for this type of brick work - cores are stronger. Looks great!
