If I got up as early as you do maybe I'd get more things done! Thanks, I'm looking forward to seeing how the setup works. The bricks dry-cut easily, oh yeah it raised a cloud of dust. The front of the garage looks like a beach
It got in the open garage door, now I'll have to back in to the garage with a leaf blower. I wore a respirator and shades. Should have worn a hat, now I've got fire-resistant hair
Took compressed air to the saw with every cut, tried to clean it off thoroughly after. That little noisy Ryobi has been a good cheap tool, all of a sudden I've had it ten years!
I'm thinking of Chris' suggestion to make the firebox taller, but the bricks are even with the front opening so I'd have to bank the coal or notch the brick to fit across the opening. Could prolly get another 4" depth but would have to be careful not to hit the front brick with every small scoop full of coal being tossed into the stove.
