Man Cave Work

These stones have been in my yard since 2002 or 2003, leftovers given to me from a commercial job. 4-6-8 sawn top and bottom random length. I always knew where they were going to end up and how I wanted them to look, but other priorities. I finally got around to doing this wall in the man cave (I did the first one in 2004). The problem was, no corners, just flats. I DID have some Austin Cream corners, but they were chalk white. Some dye, bonding agent and a little water and they match pretty good. The mantle was all sawn out of deck slabs, and every stone was gauged top and bottom as well as the ends, so I spent 2 days on the saw.

2 more walls to go! I will maybe be done in 2020!
