Layer 18 is in and it is time for the arch once I get the metal work fabricated and installed. I also need to make an arch support. But this is a milestone.

I was pleased that the tops of the skew bricks are level and even.

The plane of layer 18 seems to be within 1/8 inch, which also pleases me. Of course, this will all change when the bricks start moving around during firing, but it is a good start.


  1. 1/8" tolerance? And you accepted that? Must be getting loose in your old age.

  2. I've always been loose, the girls have just never seemed to care. ;-)
