Progress seems slow right now on building my Manabigama. Lots of measuring, cutting, figuring and adjusting. Of these three tools, I'm using the level most, the square next and the laser leveler last. But I like the laser. It can do what the other two tools do but in a different way. It'll shoot two beams at a 90-degree angle to each other, so it can be used like a giant square. I used it when I started laying brick for the ware bed of the kiln, which is on top of concrete blocks next to the firebox (shown here).
I had to quit early today to go the a meeting for the Celebration of Seagrove Potters, Nov. 21 and 22. We picked our booths tonight.
