What exactly does "Pointing" mean? Why THAT word?

Garner,
That term predates even me . It is a term that I have always heard and used. To me, it means filling the joint "completely" from the "back to the front" by what ever technique that works".

Technically, "pointing" or "tuckpointing" is done to re-fill an existing joint that has either eroded or been cut out. For new work the correct technical word would be "grouting".

Either way, it looks good and I like your tool, although it is just a matter of getting the grout consistency right to use the bag.

I couldnt make the grout bag work. I tried it dry like you said. I cant imagine going any drier than what I did. My theory is that the sand grains were too coarse.

I scoured our premises for an appropriate piece of make shift equipment for pointing the dome of the WFO where i messed up laying the top couple of dome courses. Came upon my wife's cake decorating set in the kitchen. Hey, that would work great I thought to myself. What a look i got when i told her what i needed it for..if looks could kill. I ended up curling up a heavy duty zip lock type baggy with the corner cut off. It worked fine and i didn't need to buy her a new cake and cookie decorating set!!

Hindsight i like Garners split wedge idea. I will remember that next time I need to point the head joints on my old (1836) farm house.

thanks Garner...great idea!

I went that route too. She said "absolutely not" to her Pampered Chef (?) tool but had a cheap version that looked like it would be "the ticket". I loaded it up with mortar and upon the first compression, the cheezy screw-in attachments blew out. Id be very impressed to see someone make that bag work with this very course mortar. Got a photo of that 1836 Farmhouse?

The heavy duty zip lock baggie worked fine for what i needed to point the few bricks on the inside of the dome. Everything is working fine so far and am looking forward to another build soon!!! The second oven will be a challenge as it is deep in the woods and has some steep slopes to deal with. it will probably be next summer or fall.

Here are a couple pics of the ol farm house. These pics are a couple years old. (long story). My wife has planted a lot of flowers and other plants on the front now. The new wfo is near the back of the house. Guess I need to get some new pics on my thread.

Keep sending us pics of what your cooking in your oven. (I'm really bad on the pic end of what we've been cooking).
