These cuts are getting insane! It looks like one more course and it gets back to the hassle I know and love. Ken - you are a little ahead of me , please tell me it gets easier.... Check out the photo gallery and you will see what I mean. Also, since I've been outside the box for most of this endeavor, I plan on tying all the required courses to the arch before I complete the runs. Hopefully, I can show that part tomorrow...

Les...

Hi Les,

Great work! On your question: "Would you grind the part of brick that you see forming the interior dome?", I'd leave them well alone personally. Check out the attached photo. It's of a (centuries) old brick oven in a Villa near San Gimignano in Tuscany. You can see a similar feature to yours at the top left corner of the opening. Been through a lot, this oven, including the odd earthquake, I suspect. Still in use!

Cheers, Paul.

Les, thanks for posting the new progress pics. Your transition is looking great.
Remember... Think of it as a fun challenge! (and you only have to do it once!)
