Is there a preferred method for handling a cold joint in a footer?

I'm thinking of making a plywood end cap that has holes for the rebar to pass through and a wood block on the pour side to make a keyway for the next pour.

what john said :wink: footers have NO jnts,,, on the off chance you're placing a foundation where you can't get redimix mud, place the footer in sections w/header as you outlined AND include the keyway,,, wrap keyway & header w/wax'd paper which'll help you release the next day

I'm working in a space where I can't get redimix so I'd work from bags.

If I do the work myself I wouldn't be able to get it all done in one batch so I was considering breaking the job into sections.


Thanks for the wax paper tip.
