You have come a long way with the oven so far.But spring is just around the corner haha

I need to get off my butt and start mine.Just seams like life keeps getting in the way.

The Natchez Trace rocks...just watch out for the wild life lol.All though i don't have a bike i have made the trip from tupelo to Natchez on the Trace a few times. And I've made it across the Tenn/Miss line on the Trace before but have not made it to as far as Nashville yet.The trace is defiantly one of the most scenic roads to ride in this part of the county. I actualy live just a few miles off the Trace so i drive it daily.

It was raining most of saturday but I managed to get out there late between rains and pour the ledge which will hold up the landing/counter top. I wanted this (like the corbels) to be exposed aggregate. This morning I pulled the face of the forms and wire brushed the forward facing edges.

I spent a good part of the day wrecking the forms in the wood storage and then picking up the job site. It was starting to get a little difficult to walk around this thing. A 16 foot trailor is just about loaded and ready for the land fill.

I finally got to see how my monolithic arches turned out.

It probably want be used for wood storage. If it was, only the front could be used for this purpose. I have another idea for this space. Not my idea but one that I saw on this site. Someone (I have a double personality, my other self is called Al Zimers) I can't remember who, had a slide out drawer for their oven tools. The door for the "wood storage" was attached to the rolling drawer. It was impressive! Does someone know who did this? I would like to go back and look at it again.
I will definately paint this area with the waterproof "concrete paint" that I used on top of my tornado shelter. The main reason for this is because "critters" will stand out better against the white back ground.

I was looking for a weathered looking broken/rounded edge look for the corbels and the support for the landing/countertop.



If you pull the forms before 24 hours (like I did), that is exactly what you will get, broken edges. If you want to have a little more control over the final product, wait 24, not 12!



I actually rounded them a little more to sort of even things up.


I did not get the form exactly to the top of the center brick. That thin edged broke at the the weakest point, even with the flat edge of the brick. This makes the arch appear to flatten out in the middle. It will take a little strategic grouting or a sharpie to correct.

I plan on trying my hand at a polished concret landing/counterstop to top this off. But, that will probably be one the final touches.

Tomorrow, I will start a permanent shed over this "thang".

Here is the link to Wood on Wheels: http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f28/...tml#post125410 (Wood on Wheels)

Your concrete landing is looking good. I'm thinking of doing some polished concrete with a suspended shelf so I will be keeping an eye on your progress.

Thank's Metal Man and Laku,
I need all the encouragement that I can get after a day like today. I started out to set post holes for a roof over the dome. (Not an inclosure, just a roof over) I started to dig a post hole and and I got couldn't stop. I decided to go ahead and install a french drain around the "thang". Not a real bad day just one whole day on a shovel.
I took a couple of pics but, just figured out that the camera was bumped off of automatic focus. I'll try and get some more tomorrow.
Sharkey,
Thank's (and do I feel) . I even responded to that post. Or was that Al Z?
Tu,
Thank you very much, but I wouldn't go so ar as say'n "another level" (there are a lot of great builds on this site) just maybe a different tangent.
