First time I've seen river jacks oriented like that for veneer work...looks cool, like a lodge out west.

You using type S? Any acrylic in there?

Btw, nice avatar!

Thanks for the compliments. Yes, I use Type S, w/QuikCrete Acrylic Fortifier, for that type of stone. Actually, I use it a lot for improved bonding. Good stuff. Good beer, too.

Ha, I knew it...I wasn't testing you. Modified mortar is a must with hard, smooth stone like that. Good work.

Thanks Stonecutter and Mirassou for the kudos. I plan to do a complete masonry enclosure and the entire wall area (three sides) will be veneered w/stone, other than the two brick arches on the front. Lots of stonework to do, for sure.

I haven't had much time to work on the oven lately and we've had lots and lots of rain, but I worked between the raindrops and have managed to get the vent arches started. Here is a photo of my progress. Hopefully, the weather and my schedule will clear up and I can get more done soon.

Your build is coming along great and the stone work awesome. Weather and work sure can really get in the way of the fun stuff.
