String idea

As I am working on the arch over the front door (using the corbel plan, of very straw-full cobs slowly arching towards each other with an eventual 'keystone' cob in the middle) I realized that because of my earlier idea to put the wooden sides of the door in, I had a unique anchor point for some extra 'nylon rebar' that could help me make sure this arch is a little stronger.

I guess it's hard to see in this photo, but I tied some of that blue baling twine across the gap, and am burrying it in. It can't hurt, and gives me a bit of stability on those outter edges before they meet.
