Betts Fireplace and Chimney Project, Day 22

Fitting the final pieces of a difficult puzzle.  A dry stack arch requires a great deal of patience and focus.  When building one of this size, you're constantly searching for the perfect fit.  A degree of mental stamina is necessary — many considerations take place before each stone is found.
