One arch down two to go

Well the second chamber arch went fairly smoothly. We still need to cast the key, but that shouldn't be a problem. Christy and I worked on getting the arch forms for the first chamber cut today. Unfortunately the first chamber arch is a little more complex, and it looks like the front section of the kiln footings might not be completely square. Hopefully we can get it all figured and straightened out and be laying bricks again latter this week.

It looks great from here. What is the opposing arch form? firebox? Maybe I'll go back and read up. :-)

Hey Michael,
we've never met, but my good friend Julie Jones told me all about the workshop she took with you... sounded great! The full kiln plans are posted as the very first post. But yeah, it's going to be a Bizen style Dogi/firebox. I should have more pics up tonight that will hopefully make it more clear.
