3-26. Door Openings. The procedure for laying bricks around a door opening is similar to the one you
used for a window opening. Cut pieces of wood the size of a half closure. Lay the pieces of wood in
mortar as if they were bricks. Use either screws or nails to anchor the door frame to the wood. These
wooden bricks are placed at several points along the top and sides of the door opening (Figure 3-30).
