Stone Work Spring 2009
Home > Students > Current Events > Stone Work: Spring 2009


PROJECT - 1-42" and 1-36" custom Rumford Fireplaces With reinforced ruff in, faced with hand dressed argillite stone. Hand cut segmental arches with racked joints to give depth and shadow lines.

Both groups to build these amazing stone structures put a huge effort forward. From pouring the footings to building the reinforced ruff ins the students worked hard as teams to build these fully functional fireplaces. These guys toiled in 80 degree weather and stuck with it from hand dressing the argillite stone to finishing the facing, gaining a huge amount of experience and leaving with great pride in their work. Well done guys.
