Work on the arch yesterday was slow and steady. I used most of my 590 three-inch thick standard straight brick. I think I'm left with about 15 or so. I tried to conserve them by using other brick like 6 x 9's and some 13 1/2's and a few 24-inchers. The 590 number was what Jeffrey Dean, David Steumpfle and I each wound up with after counting all of these brick. I'll be using some standard-sized "Derbys" to build the chimney.
