Hi, I'm Mark Sullivan for Expert Village and today we are going to learn how to build a barbeque pit. So these screws in the bottom of these interlock with the bosses or these tabs sticking up out of the top of the lower course of bricks, so we keep staggering them, fitting them in place. So we are trying to get a little stepping effect here. I think we may put another brick on its side so that we get a well defined architectural piece there. We do still have more of these bricks. I think we are going to keep adding, that one is broken. Let's see how many we have. You know we can go even higher on this if we want because we do have some other ones that we can finish off the top with. so I am going to keep building on this and see how it develops and how it feels and what kind of look we've achieved.
