Tools are dangerous.

The fact that you used tools should in no way distract from what it is you are creating. Try to avoid the danger of your wall looking 'overworked'. The best way to not have tools dominate the look of your wall, is to ensure there is as little 'tooling' going on, (or at least, as little evidence of the stones having been 'shaped') as possible.

A beautiful wall of Norman Haddow's

  1. A few days ago I was facing a wall in the German town Rüdesheim. It was late afternoon, and I was marvelling at the sheer beauty of the setting sun on some of the most amazing faces I've ever seen, from quartz-frosted ochres to caramel toffee to rich crusty reds. The wall was solidly built, unfortunately many faces were badly damaged by chisel work, exposing grey nondescript material underneath.
