" firebrick in a
vertical Herringbone pattern. The fireboxes are shipped
in three sections — two covings and the fireback (inner
hearths are also available) and are easily erected at the
job site. The pre-made fireboxes savemaster masons
much time and aggravation and allow less experienced
masons to build beautiful Herringbone fireboxes.

) Themason lays the inner hearth, level and centered,
in a bed of mortar.
(2) The next day, the covings and the fireback are set in place,
(in the refractorymortar provided) on the hearth. They are
temporarily supported with concrete blocks or lumber.
(3) A solidmasonry-backing wall at least four inches
thick is built to permanently support the firebox.
(4) Refractorymortar is used to fill any cracks
between the four pieces of the firebox and
the firebox is washed with clean water.
(5) Now the firebox is ready to be treated like any
other — carefully — until the solidmasonry has cured.
