With the warmer spring weather Ive had here, I set up my brickmaking outdoors to increase output.
By stockpiling clay and sand in bigger piles, I can mix up more and larger batches for the presses.

Poured some concrete for the bottom of the flue passthru and ash chute. It is a concrete made with sand and gravel from a closeby creekbed. In the mix is a portion of clay. The idea being to give it some ability to resist the heat of the gases as they pass thru the flue.
