Default Re: Pouring hearth

Looking good! I like the idea at supercub : photos : Building a Wood Oven - powered by SmugMug of using plastic wire ties to keep the rebar together, and easier I suspect than bending up short lengths of wire.

Good to see at supercub : photos : Building a Wood Oven - powered by SmugMug that you used tensioned wires to keep the forms from bowing out no tripping over angled props during the slab pour!

Your decorative layer looks great I look forward to seeing it completed.

Thumbs up Re: Pouring hearth

i did my hearth a little differnt than most on top of the last course of 8 inch block i laid a course of 4 inch block flush with the out side of the 8". then i put wonder board on the shelf created on the inside notched the wonder board where i wanted the hearth pour to flow vertical . put temp bracing in two places under the wonder board . bent and tied my vertcal rods to the horizontal grid and filled er up worked super . no forms to strip on perimeter . no forms to strip under except two braces under wonder board we use this system all the time on chimneys in houses . really enjoy this forum

This sounds like a great idea. By "flow vertical" do you mean flow down through the blocks?
