Here’s some progress on our latest cladding project in Brighton for @figureheadconstruction. The stones are  50mm thick gang sawn wondabyne sandstone from @gosfordquarries weighing up to 55kg each. They are all mechanically fixed using various clips from Dan @stoneclip.

Here are a few pieces from the banker workshop. Firstly a ball finial, then a pediment springer and finally a plinth stone. These were done a few years back but I just found them over the weekend so thought I’d put them up. All cut by hand.

A huge thanks to Niall from @nct_stonecraft for the invite to assist him with the restoration of the Cordillo Downs station woolshed, Australia’s biggest stone woolshed. 180km to the nearest neighbour and on a station bigger than Belgium, what a place to spend the last two weeks. With some traditional lime mortar it’s amazing how you can spruce up an old ruin. With the cracks all repointed, the voids in the wall grouted up and the roof back on, this old beauty should easily stand for another 130 years. Thanks again for the opportunity Niall. Can’t wait to get back up there.

This is a basement wine cellar we have recently completed in South Yarra using South Australian Limestone from @bruhnlimestone. There were seventeen pillars in all, some of which were solid blocks and others mechanically fixed slabs using @stoneclip 6mm adjustable clips. The skirting and string course were also fixed with either the 6mm adjustable clips or the stone pins. All the blocks were manufactured on site by our team as you can see they were far from ready to go in on arrival. We love a challenge and this one had a few but as we always say we’ll never be beat. 📸@pauljohnstone_photography

Here’s something a bit different to our usual but just as much fun. Commissioned by the artist Fiona Abicare and titled Rosebud in a fire pit. We made the limestone surround from shell limestone supplied by Steve @limestoneaustralia to house the clay rosebud made by Fiona. 📸 Christian Capurro

Off to a flying start this week on this impressive apartment complex in Brighton for @figureheadconstruction. We have been getting our gangsawn wondabyne sandstone from Dustin @gosfordquarries cut and prepared for the install using a few different fixings from Dan @stoneclip. No silica dust in sight with the new Flex wet cutting track saw from the boys @cdkstone and of course the old faithful manta. Hopefully we can start getting these panels up next week. ⚒

Basalt field stone drystone wall. The brief was to use no mortar, pick and place the stone without dressing as much as possible and get it done quickly. Stone picked on site and wall built in 2.5 days. ⚒ #stonemason #melbournestonemason #melbournestonemasons #basalt #basaltwall #drystone #drystonewall #lakeeppalock

A few fix ups and some repointing on this Ivanhoe job. The stone is the local basalt which is found throughout Victoria. More to come of this stuff soon. #basalt #basaltwall #stonemason #stonemasonry #stonewall #melbournestonemason
