Hi Chris,

We use the reed mats on all wooden surfaces that are plastered, and for
bridging we solely use jute-net, a mesh with 0,5 cm masks apart. (Perhaps
you call it burlap?). It is surprisingly strong.
We also used it in some masonry stoves. One of them were rebuild because a
new owner wanted a different design. It was only right up to where the
plaster hits the metalframe of the "door" where you put in the firewood,
the last 2 cm's that it was soft, otherwise it did it's job were weel.

Cheers
Caroline
