It Is built, Phewwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

The air trapped inside will now support the top. I must crack on with the surface as it is now pretty dry. I could wet it but it is stronger if I leave it, I will just have to work fast.p1010496

Being careful not to trap air beneath the surface as this could explode in the kiln.



Not much skin left!
