Your bricks should be damp, not sopping wet.

Now you tell me Ha Ha. I thought you soaked them for a few until no bubbles could be seen. I was off base on that.

Well I got the first course laid today and my inner arch cemented in. I have a question for you how long do you have to wait between courses?

Don't wait at all! Keep going if you have the energy . and day light.

As long as nothing slides or moves it's ok on these lower courses that are pretty much flat. Usually after a few minutes, they wont slip foreword so you can start the next row at your dryer end & keep going. I think it's actually better to keep going while the row is still damp. When you start up the next day (after you've lightly soaked your cut bricks) you need a spray bottle or sponge and clean water to wet the dried bricks from yesterday before you attach this new batch to them. By the time you get to steeper rows, you're an oven-building pro and you will KNOW what to do.

I was also mistaken about soaking the bricks. I actually felt guilty not soaking until bubbles disappeared but I was so excited (only you wo-fo builders understand) that I only soaked for a few minutes which turned out fine.

Sometimes if the brick below is too wet it would slide "in" on me so be careful. It's not surgery so you can't hurt anyone. Cheers, Dino

ps: Keep away from the arch until it is totally dry. Yours looks good and tight but check if you need anything under it to hold them in place. But try not to knock it.

Looking good Huck,

You probably already know but try to keep an eye out to keep the rows vertical mortar joints from lining up. Maybe it's just the pic you took that makes them look that way and sometimes you do a perfect job offsetting them then you miss 1 or 2 'cuz your concentrating so hard on something else. (been there, done that )

Looks like your next row will have to "bit" into your arch. It's usually a 'pacman mouth' triangular gouge out the bricks edge that faces the curved arch. It's not that hard of a cut but really satisfying to get over the arch.
