Mix of Corinthian and Van Tassel granite's, and our local granitic gneiss. The slabs are 10 footers, locally quarried then shipped to and from Quebec for sawing and flaming.

So frikn awesome!!:thumbup:

I really like the corners. They are so crisp it is almost as if they have some sort of corner bead on them.

Very very nice!!:thumbsup:

Very nice. Corinthian and Van Tassel are from New York, correct? The veneer thickness seems on the thin side, like 3". I'm just curious on what's out there, we don't see much New England stone, except bluestone and PA fieldstone.

Just noticed the elliptical arch. How about a full frontal shot?:w00t::w00t:

Hat's Off. Your work is truly a work of Art. Post more pictures if you get the chance.

I actually said out-loud, "Wow, that looks great."

Hell of a nice job!

Where in Quebec? Bebe? Owen Sound is a lot closer

Yes from New York...most of the 'raw' stone is in the 4-4 1/2" range, finished thickness of course depends on the amount of pitching/facing one does.
The mantel stone is 7" thick and the 'caps' for the columns below are 4".... just for reference...

Actually I'm not sure... We got the stone from Van Dyk Natural Stone in Huntsville... they had already done the shipping/sawing, which seems to be their preferred m.o. for the bigger slabs these days, rather than hand splitting.
