Description

The traditional stonemason is as relevant today as ever before, holding skills and knowledge that have produced some of the most spectacular and beautiful structures the world has ever known. This book introduces the world of the artisan craftsman, from the basic essentials of setting up a workshop, selecting stone, developing tool skills and techniques, to building with stone on-site and producing set-work pieces of sufficient quality to become part of the built heritage.

Techniques are explained with an accessible but detailed approach, and supported by step-by-step photographs:

  • Turn a boulder into a perfect cube
  • Make a voussoir for an arch
  • Produce a tracery quatrefoil
  • Carve a stunning sphere
  • Repair an ashlar wall
  • Cut incised letters
