I hear you, but the time you are taking is showing in a very good looking build. I just got past my arch yesterday and am done with my 7th course. I used the grinder a lot with it. I can't see how one can do it with the wet saw alone. Moving to the 8th tonight.

Just keep taking your time. Just like Gianni said. "you only get to build it once."

I am taking the 50/50 road. Take my time....get impatient and just say...it's good enough!

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?

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!
