Final assembly

I fired the three pieces one at a time in the kitchen oven.  A couple hours at about 250 to drive out moisture and about 5 hours at 500 fahrenheit.  The bottom section developed a small crack.  This is the only section that didn’t have extra re-bar in it.  I didn’t add the rebar because this section doesn’t move and isn’t lifted.  I might regret that choice.

The other two came out great.  Here they are bolted together.
