I am convinced all the mortar is going to crack and fall off. I will have to plea to the GardenWeb divas to assure me that won't happen. I know you guys think I'm good at this kind of thing, but the truth is, I am filled with paranoia and uncertainty every step of the way. And if I get to the end and it turns out and all is well, I'll be the most surprised of the bunch.
I also made what I think is a huge mistake. I decided to do the top first, let him harden and dry before doing the bottom. Now I have no idea how I can lay him on his side to do the bottom without him shattering into a thousand pieces. No, it's not that fragile. It just seems like it.
Sigh. And this is what I'm doing for relaxation!
