Nice finish Russell - you're an artist as well as an master mason! A new temple to the sun god - you'll have future archeologists scratching their heads - and an appropriate beer for the closing celebration!

Russel,
Quite impressive, sir. The sheer number of fine cuts and attention to detail is readily noteworthy. You own the right to peek inside your oven and give it the 'wink'.

Dammit! I'll soon need to do a new oven if you guys keep making them any more beautiful.

Seriously though, nice work!

Beautiful touch on the plug - nice job. It's feels great to cross that milestone, doesn't it? You get just as giddy when you have your first fire of hell.

You have no release factor at the bottom of the arch. You need to take it out, cut an inch or so off the bottom and shim it up so you can get the form out of there when done.

edit- I see you do have shims, maybe that is enough.

Worst case, burn it out.

Looks good.
