Pediment Arch Part 3

Each voussoir had to be shaped and then carefully dressed with a toothed chisel to give a mottled texture.

The basketball backboard looking thing is the form for the stones in the arch. It also provides a good space for drawing what it is going to look like.

Final under arch dressing

A clever fitting to create a dropped keystone

Timeless beauty

A place to discover as you walk across the property

  1. Brilliant things happen when brilliant minds and hands get together. Were any pins or joggle used in the beds? Man, this is a sweet thing... folly, completely!
