Below are some images to give youan idea as to throw out (roll the mortar) for the bed.
|Cut some mortar from the pile on the spot board and turn over a couple of times|
|When you have turned the mortar you will notice a resemblance to a pasty, scoop up the turned mortar|
|Diagonally pull back from the edge of the board quickly|
|Spreading out the mortar|
After you spread out approx the length of 2 - 3 bricks, run your trowel through the centre of the mix with a small jerkin movement, as in the picture
