I've had a bit of a look and I can't seem to find what mortar you used. Was it homebrew or proprietary?

Oh I have zero doubt that I will be heads in at some point. I will be sure and post photos.

It is already funny how much I am all over my stand and climbing here and there. You can't build these with out getting all up in it!!

Looking forward to getting dirty again this weekend.

I often cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food...

Repairs are holding to the inner arch
Cooked three times since and all seems well.

I used Alsey mortar for the build. Save money and use homebrew, I say. The failure was due to cracking not mortar failure though. The alsey cost $50 bag, so you can keep nearly all that with homebrew.

The sealer has failed on my flagstone counters, so I am in the process of redoing that.
