Tower


Every stone cut to a radius. The wood structure was framed to a ten sided polygon, so the veneer thickness ranges from 5" to 8.5". The Lintel pieces have no steel under them. They are pretty heavy.

Re: Tower


It's tennessee fieldstone and tennessee craborchard (quarried) for the lintels. The little columns between the windows took the longest. They are 7' tall and only 10" wide. There is 9 windows around by three courses high. Dead of winter. I didn't make any money on this part.

Those parts do look tricky. I admire that you were able to stick to bond rules as well.

I'm struggling with winter masonry right now as well...
oh well. At least I'm working!

Very nice, even though the architect should be shot.

Looks great! I love the Tenn fieldstone. It's great to work with, crab orchard too. Good job.
