Always nice to start the day with a few new #trowandholden #tools.

new hammers from the absolute high quality #trowandholden company, my two all time favorite hammers are now new again, #realstonenovenerhere #stonemasonry thank you

My first crack at banker masonry, I cut that profile into that piece of limestone using the chisels pictured. I just wanted to see if I could do it. I am hoping to incorporate that cornice into a masonry heater that I am about to start. #oldgoatmasonry #trowandholden #trowandholdentools

Love these Trow and Holden carbide tipped hammers. #trowandholden #rockpick #bushhammer

Odd looking thing.. #benchfeet #trowandholden

Stepped up my game to #sculpting stone. #trowandholden since 1890! I will be able to take down marble with it also. #art #sculpture

Just finished this little gem. There are a few spacing issues but I can live with it for my first piece in limestone. #handcarved #limestone #wethepeople #trowandholden #theconstitution

Old school - new tool.
Mill stones need periodic dressing (sharpening). Refreshing the furrows, lands and feathering increases the efficiency of the stones (kg/hr), which in turn requires less pressure and lower friction, resulting in a lower temperature of the flour, which preserves nutrients and prevents proteins from denaturing - all beneficial.
In North America, stone dressing was itinerant work. As the stone dressers went from mill to mill, the miller would ask; "to show me your metal", referring to the metal fragments lodged in the dressers hands and forearms. The greater the experience the more the metal fragments, or so it would seem. (Ironically it was more a measure of the smith who put a temper on the mill picks. Bad tempers made for brittle picks.)
As the centuries passed (swipe), mill picks have advanced in design and materials; now with hickory handles and carbide tips. The bottom right pick just arrived from Trow & Holden in Barre Vermont, where they have been making mill picks since 1890 (they made the stone tools for the Lincoln Memorial). Most contemporary stone dressing is done with pneumatic air hammers, I was trained with a mill pick and will probably continue to practice this technique. I love the continuity. Slow food, slow money and slow dressing.

Spending Saturday relaxing, having fun, and making progress #mainestonescapes #drystonewall #stonewall #maine #stonework #trowandholden

Nice full relief here on this rocked thermal Bluestone. Even the bottom at 8” only a smidge of a flat spot. It’s nice when working the stone with the chisel that it works with you. Hard thermal can be unpredictable and lead. To flat spots, poor relief and blowouts. Check the cross section for reed or slate deposits too. Nice job on this set here, ready for Install.

Using an old technique to split the reclaimed granite stones. The tools being used are called feathers and wedges which were used even in the ancient Egyptian times.

Little slo motion rocking going on under the tent today in the rain. Granite in particular can be very delicate to rock if not careful you can easily blow out the corner or bottom if you get to aggressive with the chisel. This is a 2” @trowandholden that I only use half 1” of the chisel to make sure there are no blowouts. I also like to give the corners a little love tap from the side . You blow that corner out and the piece is toast. This is imported overseas salt and pepper and works great if you are careful. Slight angle, sharp carbide tip and do not rush it. Small bites👍🏻👍🏻. Keep the bits sharp rounded bits can slip and underperform.

Looking through old photos and found these. Walked around this house with a go pro and got some interesting shots. This huge house is in Breckenridge, CO and and mostly castle. We were there for 5 months! It’s always fun to do unique styles of stone.

Starting a new project today; medieval wall around #kråkstad church. Super nice start with 5 cm of snow.. #manuallabor #trowandholden #stonemason #mason

Odd looking thing.. #benchfeet #trowandholden

6" thick square/rectangle Stone Work on an angled retaining wall.
Most people won't understand how much work goes into getting the corner stones on top of this wall right.
If you understand it you'll appreciate it.

After the #dexpan let me down we resorted to the #oldschool hammer and Chisel and to #quickcuts #husqvarna #trowandholden #classical

Used the rainy weather today to fabricate the radius sandstone caps for a fire pit I'm installing in East Greenwich. #eastgreenwich #unilock #trowandholden #huskvarna

Just finished a stone carving for a custom lantern. A great opportunity to try out a few new chisels from #Trowandholden. Just have to finish the bronze accents and install the light. #gardenlantern #bluestonecarving #bluestone #landscapesculpture #landscapeart #apld #apldmn

Traveled to Spikkestad/Røyken to get some red granite stone for our #vøyenvollen project. #granite #trowandholden #manuallabor #mason #masonry #stonemason

Then we’re finally finished at John Collets Allé, Tåsen. Will be back in May to do some heavy lime mortar beaded joints. So long. #masonry #stonemason #mason #byggogbevar #svendfjellstad #limestones #trowandholden #oslo

A good mate swore by and loaned me his @trowandholden chisels for a try when roughing out, heavy chisels for heavy hard stones, i better buy some #stonemason #stonetools #trowandholden

I bought this new hammer from Trow & Holden to use for this unique situation where the bottom and top arrises of 2 stone wall planks don't match up BUT I want to make it all "sing to the eye". #throughstonegroup

Second attempt at carving... not finished yet... #stonemason #mason #limestone #sculpture #art #carving #trowandholden

Carbide chisel set just in from Trow and Holden. Time to cut some stones!#hardscape#trowandholden#hamdammer

This is part of what it takes to split a new stone. I cheated a little bit by using the saw but the CCC workers who built this wall in the 1930's would have done everything by hand. To cut this rock into 3 equally sized pieces took about 40 minutes. #romo #rockymountainnationalpark #rmnp#trowandholden #traditionalconstruction #stonemason #timelapse #historicpreservation
