Chimney middle section - detail


Continuing work on the chimney, this time the middle section. I applied cardboard layers to build up the dimensional surface and completed the smaller herringbone pattern for this middle piece. There were a few different challenges to this section, including two rows of bricks set at an angle: one continuing on either side of the herringbone frame and one above it. These would be somewhat easy to do with actual bricks but not with two-dimensional egg carton bricks. I decided to replace the one on top with a plain vertical row instead of the angled bricks mainly because this row hits right at the roofline and I didn't want to risk the stability of the top. I gouged out the row on either side of the herringbone pattern and will fill this with the angled bricks later. This portion has wall support behind it and, once filled with the angled bricks, will be perfectly stable. Now I am ready to brick this middle portion, then will come the topper.
