  • Crap, some help on the face

    Crap, i started to enclose my oven with 1/2" concrete board and have installed it all around the sides and back.
    the front of the oven i just have it installed on top half so i can complete the arch etc.

    my problem is a miscalculated when building my brick arch not figureing the brick needs to stick out from the board.

    Can i use 1/4" on the bottom half and tape the seem where they meet, put a skim coat of mortar on the seem to blend it, then apply stone veneer?

    See attached bad drawing

    Any help would be great.

    What does it matter if the arch brick are recessed?

      Problem is the arch is built already and some if the bricks are set to stick out 1/2 inch from the board and some are recessed

      I'm not a mason and just proved it

      My thought was if I went with 1/4" it might mask it slightly

        So, a 1/4" is all you would be gaining. I don't this making a difference with a stone veneer.

          If you want to hide a mistake, it seldom works to try and make it smaller, make it larger and it will look intentional. If you are working with a +/- of 1/4" on the arch brick, make the arch revel 3/4"-1" and it will not be seen.
