Those of you who guessed my LAST question correctly will know that I’ve started an evening class in Stonemasonry! Just for fun. Here are some slightly grainy photos of my (extremely slow) progress – but progress no less. Weeks 1 and 2 were all about getting a straight edge (harder than it sounds) – last night I hacked away at the lump in the middle, first with a punch, then a claw and then a sharp chisel and fancy brass headed mallet. Quite a noisy & wasteful process, most unlike anything I’ve done before, but definitely enjoyable.
