Brick Shelves

Part of the infrastructure required for brick-making is a place to dry the formed bricks before they are fired. Since this brick-making operation is being built from the ground up (literally) I had to design and construct a shelving system. It is composed of simple wooden frames with slats for shelves, to allow for the maximum flow of air.

At first I was worried that the slats were making lines on the bricks. I was thinking that I would have to let them dry longer on the sand rows, or touch up each brick, or make different shelves, but then I found a very simple solution: a shim to angle the slats to almost the same slope as the brick.
