    No, just the opposite, the brick in the arch were laid up as the chains are laid up.

    As the arch brick begin to intersect with the chain brick, the arch brick are cut on angle to maintain the chain angle.

    I don't know if I would say this is the best way. It is just another way.

    Our goal is to keep as much brick, as opposed to mortar joints, in the structure. The place where this is most troublesome is the entry arch and the last 6 or so chains.

    Having a masonry saw available helps to minimize this.
