    Re: Measuring your Hearth

    If the picture is uploaded, and you can find it, you can left click on the image, select "copy image location", then in your post you can hit the postcard icon over the box where you type. This brings up a dialog box where you can paste the location (or URL) of your picture, and it will show up right in your post,

        Hi all,
        Here is the slab with concrete blocks, lots of rebar and crushed stone topped with 5 in concrete hearth to date. I added 20% extra crushed rock and sand to the mix. All wood and rebar was recycled, donated by local construction sites. The HD tie down strap really helped keep frame together nicely.
        Left the heavy strap on for 1 week now. I am told concrete dries and hardens over several months. Any thoughts?
        Still figuring out the picture upload. These are all in my album.

            "no more that 60% of the dome height"

            The "magic number" is 63%. No more, no less.
