making an egyptian brick mold

Don made me a Hassan Fathy size ( egyptian size ) brick mold. He says it could make a million bricks at least. This is also a good picture of what Don does best. He can bend and shape metal into any which way. He let me saw the metal pieces and he welded the corners together. Looking at the flame is like looking into the sun, which is why protective eye covering is needed. I peeked for a second and I was seeing stars for about ten minutes. I'm OK now. I asked Don how much I owed him. "10 cents" he said. I paid him in full.
