I would pour and finish it as one piece, no cuts, no lines, nada. Just do it. 99% of the tees I play on have zero control joints. None have broken up...all have cracks, but no failures. I think way...

You really do need a helper. I could handle this solo easily, but then I have done millions of SF like this.

I'm pretty sure Mike wasn't saying to pour multiple times, but rather to divide the 5x10. If I pour a 4' sidewalk, 100' long...I am going to pour that whole sucker at one time. Once its floated and...

Mando, why are you doing it in two pours again? The best way to deal with the joint is to eliminate it all together. Can it be done in one pour?

I'd be less nervous with a closer to 3" number in the center. Replaced tons of thin stuff, so its warranted.
