I've done more than my share of knocking a brick off a mortar joint and it happen with my arch as well. Laku makes a good point, not happy with arch brick size, you now have chance to change.

I had another local WFO builder come by to help brainstorm a bit. I'm going to recut the arch and move it back toward the dome about 3/4 inch. Thoughts are to cut the middle section of the arch from longer bricks to help support the transition with the dome.

Good think I have more bricks and plenty of mortar!

Sounds like you are doing the right thing. You'll be glad you re-cut it re-mortared. You waited this long and you are close to finishing so do it right.

Thanks Dino and others for the encouragement.

It was too easy to lose momentum on this project (1st kid, now 2 yrs) and hopefully going back and reviewing your build along with other guys at the same time, Mfiore and SCChris, I'll try to get myself back on track.

More work this weekend.
