LOL..I am a lot more carefree with my mortar joint size and brick cut compare to you. Don't worry, you get there eventually. Just take your time.

6th, 7th, & 8th

Three more course and a Keystone to go!!

Everybody is having fun with Mardi Gras parade but I am having a lot more fun with buiding my WFO! I get Monday and Tuesday off for Mardi Gras holiday (yes, it is a holiday down here in Nawlins but we don't get President day off) and hopefully that I will be done with the dome.

Happy Mardi Gras!!!

Looking good there Tu,

"Three more course and a Keystone to go!!"

You must have jumped back on the WFO late after the heavy rains cleared out. I'm farther east so it was after dark before it quit here.

"Everybody is having fun with Mardi Gras parade but I am having a lot more fun with buiding my WFO! "

Careful there, don't let on to everyone know how much fun it really is. Someone might suggest giving it up for Lent

You should have good weather monday and tuesday.

"Happy Mardi Gras!!" to you to and "Laissez Le Bon Temps Rouler!!!"

It was raining like crazy on Saturday. I did the cut between rain. During the rain, I still able to mortar up the brick under my low budget tent (attached photo). There is no way I am giving this project up for lent because I am no saint .

Cut brick for course number 9

Set up platform for easy climb into the oven.

My wife caught me in the act with my true love. After she busted me, I just pretended to walk away in shame. As soon as she looked away, I went back for more.

course number 9 & 10 done today, tommorow will be course number 11th and the keystone

When the course is getting closer to the keystone, it is very hard to keep the mortared brick in place because of gravity during the process. These mortared down bricks of the course will shift away from it original position whenever I placed another brick next to them bricks during the mortaring process which can be very frustrating. To solve that problem, you can simply mortar down one brick for each course first then walk away from it and this will be your anchor brick for the course. You may clean up the anchor brick without moving the indispensable tool after 15 minutes. Just let it dry over-night or until you feel it is dry enough (4 hours for me) and you can mortar down the remaining brick for the course. Because of this method, I tried my best to place the anchor brick for the next course first before I throw in the towel for the day.

Tu,
You are making excellent progress. Can't wait to see what you got done today. The weather was perfect and I am jealous of New Awlins holidays. I had to work Had a couple slices of "authentic" King Cake this morning though Fried King Cake not the decorated cinnamon roll from Walley World crap. It was picked up and delivered (from Joe's Cafe in Marrero) by a truck driver who round trips daily from NO to where I work. He brings it every Fat Tuesday.
Hope that you had a Great Mardi Gras working on the WFO, I'm a little jealous of how fast and great that your build is coming along. I'm afraid that you are going to pass me.
Keep up the great work.
Also: LMAOROF about the position you were caught in with your "mistress"

That is funny. A few weeks ago my son was wondering why I was spending an inordinate amount of time on this forum. He reckoned it was "oven porn". I didn't realise just how true that was

great work btw
