Brick/Mortar question

I've built an 80 foot brick fence with 11 columns. Looks great; no problems except with the caps on the columns. Covered with brick, faces up. Sawed the face off a bunch of bricks and attached them to the exposed holes of the cap bricks with structural epoxy. Problem came when trying to point up those 1/8" joints. Using the same mortar mix as the rest of the wall. Once it dries, you can just brush it away like dust. I've done it twice with the same results.
What is causing this and how do I finish the job.

The mortar is probably drying out too quickly. Try wetting the brick before pointing. You might also want to consider using latex modified tile grout. It's better in tight spaces and the latex will improve the weatherability.

Absolutely -- but I'd change the solution to read "Try soaking the brick...".
