Our bricks are holding up great. We used larger ones, 4.5X7-8"X16" for the floor and back of our barrel.

How are you making corrections between courses? Ar you grinding down high spots to the lowest point? or are you adding mortar to increase height?

Cloita,

Yeah, the bricks are big...but they do have drawbacks, they are all tapered so creative placement is required. How's your build progressing?

dvm,

I am mainly adjusting the horizontal mortar joint over several bricks in the chain, checking for level at several points side to side. I wanted to be as close to level as possible as I complete the chain over the arch. We we see soon how successful I am.

Finished Course 5 and tapered arch except for the key (waiting for mortar to set) this morning before heading out for a holiday BBQ. Happy 4th of July to all of you WFOs.

Thanks Tscar,

It is quite a compliment to get a "great" from you. Thanks for all the feedback on my build, paid close attention to avoiding chips on the tie-ins due to your eagle eye.

Flawless!!! Nice work. Your gonna find it very easy going once you get over that arch. I did my 8th course yesterday in 2 hours. I did spend less time worrying about my bond joints and that was kind of a nice relief.

Keep up the great work!
