The aesthetic of used brick is not the remnants of mortar it is the brick itself.

C5dad (Chris):
"....the bricks are just bricks unless they can tell a story! ...So, do your best and be careful of the patina!....I am using 100+ yr old fire brick from a furnace (yes, it is CLEAN) in my oven. Cool thing - my great great grandfather was a brick mason at the mine where I got the bricks. So, think they are special to me?? "

I can really relate to that .

I will be glad when these 12 to 16 hour days (our annual outage at the mill where I work) ends . (They don't have an icon for "dog tired"). I am hoping to get back to work on the Mississippi Queen very soon.

That lloonngg aassss shutdown is over . Finally, I got to work on the MQ a little today. I needed to insulate between the firebox and the face brick with 6 to 1 vermicrete (a Tscar recomendation which I do appreciate). If I could have done this before the outage it would have had whole month of drying time. Oh well! I began by sealing the gap between the outside firebrick arch and the facebrick arch. I did not have the ceramic fiber rope on hand so I plugged the hole with a scrap piece of 3/8" cord rope.

I will remove it later and replace with it ceramic fiber or tuck point it with a fine blend of vcrete. Not sure yet.
The back of the firebox has an open vertical slope which seemed to me would be a little too difficult to manage with the VCrete so I built a slip form which allowed me to add a 1X4" as I progressed packing the firebox enclosure from the bottom to the top.

The back of the form all packed.

There is a 3 and 1/2" section in the middle above the dome which will have to be packed after the forms are removed. Most of this section would be inside the 7" ceramic fiber and Vcrete area for the dome, though.

I cut and dry stacked 5 rows of facebrick to get a head start on next weekend.

Weather permitting .

Did not get much done due to the weather. I did wreck the vertical form on the back of the oven.


That SS tube sticking up on the right is a conduit for the control for the damper. If you look real close to the bottom right of the right hand corbel you can see where (what I call) the choke will be.

Got some speed poles set before it started raining. This will be the visible width (34"X24") of the facebrick until it clears the underside of the A-Frame. It will then be inset to the final width to continue through the roof.

Went back into the shed, layed and cut some more face brick for what will enclose the chimney.

The OD of the firebrick liner of the chimney is about 12"X12". The 20"X20" face brick shell will enclose about 2" of V-Crete for insulation.

Wow, is that an illusion or am I seeing 4 arches in your oven?
