Default More carving

I got another very unexpected day at home today, so I made the pedestal bases for the arch and started working on the hearth too.

Starting out with yet more scrap granite from the project in New England. I cut two ends off a 5.5 ft piece and began by squaring up.

(after I cut off the ends)

So I made two of those and checked them for fit before trimming them for real.

Then placed the whole assembly on the watertable to check how everything matched up.

I cut the intrados of the granite arch slightly smaller than the intrados of the vent arch, so it would hide any visible brick edge.

Another thermal break..why not.

I still have to hone these, and bevel the top edge.

Then it was on to the hearth. Here is the last large scrap of granite I have to work with. It was barely big enough to use.

Leveling the top.

Remove the large waste parts.

Grind off the chisel marks.

Then I made a template of the hearth and started cutting it out.

Here's were I ended the day.

I'll need 4-6 hours to finish carving and honing. Then on to more framing.

Thanks guys.


Gulf,

If I could redo the watertable( I'm stuck now) , I would add some Black Beauty to the mix (black sandblast slag)...it would better replicate the feldspar in the granite. Next time.....
