Stonework 2015


I'm going to try to post working jobsite pics without using photobucket. We will see how it turns out.

How do you upload without photobucket? I tried yesterday and couldn't figure it out.

Beautiful work as always. Glad to see you posting again

I uploaded it with the attachment tab (paperclip). It didn't show when I previewed it, so I figured out you scroll down to manage attachments and drag onto the post.

I plug my phone into my laptop and download my pictures. Then when I want to post a picture, I hit manage attachment, and that takes me to my pictures, and I just choose and upload.

Re: Stonework 2015


looks nice....hearth has center stone with repeating patern each side....those things make it. Ive done patios and fp's similarly. It would of been nice to see a rumford but it's existing.
Good you kept the arch down for the ''throat chamber''....two words hardly used together and with any real meaning anymore. Good work! Face too!

Yesterday I took a pic of a 50 year old granite job my dad did which I pass by all the time. It was repointed badly but it still is nice. His design was fine...and the stone was not a cut nor gauged selection....pitched bellys

I'll post the pic soon I zoomed in too much....

Thanks guys, the picture doesn't show the corbels for the (to be) wood mantel. They are thinking an old barn beam if we can find the right one.

Re: Stonework 2015


I noticed you put a cap on the hearth before finishing the facing. Any reason to do this first? My process is to wait until the face is done so the top isn't stained or damaged by any falling debris. Just curious.

Looks like a nice tight job.

I covered the hearth with a tarp. Depending on the stone I like not cutting in at the legs of the FP.

Here's some more stuff I did early this year.

Any pink you see is Feldspar or "spar" as the quarrymen call it.
