Hey Kyle,

Are you going to pour some concrete over this to strengthen it up? Do you think it's thick enough and OK as is?

I think it'll be okay as is. the plan is to put some durorock concrete board down, then 3" softbrick, then "3 hard brick.

i really like your pottery and blog and am looking forward to your kiln rebuilding. i will be building a salt kiln myself (my first) this summer. can i ask how large your old kiln was? were you happy with that size? what will the volume of your new one be? why are you going to a sprung arch from a catenary arch?

thanks. I will look very forward to your blog posts. i am sure i will learn from them.

also, thanks for that video you put up of back filling handles a while back. that was awesome.
