The wife had great idea on packing your mortar joints when dry stacking dome w/wedges use a tile grout bag with a small tip it fits wonderfully into the joints and fills them up

Thumbs up Welcome :)

Yes, I thought of that too....I can tell you that it works better in theory than in practice. Getting those cracks full of mortar was impossible for me

Better to squeeze out excess mortar than to try and pack it into small spaces. Air gaps=poor performance.
