Default Arch for wood storage area

I'm sure this has been asked and answered before but I'm not having luck finding it. When I made my stand I didn't realize that I should have made a cement arch form so I could later brick it. Now that I'm beyond that point is it still ok to do some sort of brick arch? I'd like to brick the entire stand with an arch going around the wood storage opening. Maybe some sort of durarock arch as a backing?

What sort of brick are you using? If it's standard three and a half inch face brick, you would just build your arch like any other arch, with a wooden form below, and mortar the bricks radially on top of it. If it's thin face brick, yes, you'll have to build some sort of armature to support them.

Standard for at least the arch but what I'm wondering about is that part in the corners between the arch and the actual stand.. what do I put there to stick the brick to? Nothing? Just go up from the arch and hope it supports it ok?

Am I making sense?

I thought I did but must have posted it in another thread besides "Les' build". I'll look for it when I get the chance. I also noticed my thumbnails are jacked, I'll fix that as well.

Just to be sure, did you stick those bricks right to your cement block and cement?

When I stacked the block I sat in some brick ties. There is probably 1/2 inch of space (most likely filled with mortar) between the block and brick.

You can use a ramset to attach them - if not that, use tapcon's. You don't need very many ties for that short of a verticle distance.
