Sorry, I don't follow...what would you like to do with yours?...I think you are asking about the adze treatment but I'm not sure.

I carved the granite supports for the chimney cap today....took almost 5 hours from cube to finished product. I wanted to have a similar effect of that chimney I posted on #150 (My Wood fired Redux).

The only time I used the saw was to cut the blocks to size, because I only had 4 block to make this work...my granite stock is almost depleted.

The shape was roughed out by hand chisels, and I bush hammer finished the supports with a pneumatic carving tool.

I have some time tomorrow so I'll have these installed, form a new crown, then set the limestone cap. I'm pleased with these, they look old and time worn.

In spite of the heat, I finished the cap! Very pleased with the final appearance, the imperfections of the supports made it for me.

Here are some pics of the crown first. After setting the supports, I troweled out the crown....

Then I tried to pair up the supports, they are all different sizes. I think knocking these out and not fussing helped achieve the look I was after.....old, time worn stone.

After the crown was done, the limestone cap was installed. It isn't perfectly square, so I had to play around with it to make it look balanced.

The joint between the cap and support is about 1/8"

Looks great! It will really come together when you get the color on the chimney chase

Thanks DJ. I agree, the paint will finish the chimney off nicely. We are thinking a color similar to the lighter earth tone of the stone used for the base. I still need to seal the granite supports, which will darken them like the arch & keystone.

That's it, just the process of taking a piece of rock [your granite arch] and turning into the arch. You showed the process in your subsequent photos you posted.

No oven work today, but yesterday I got a good portion of the back done, and a base course on one side. Today I sealed the granite supports and the cap, then picked up some paint for the chimney. which will get done tomorrow, along with completing the stonework on the back.

Completed the back of the oven yesterday afternoon. I should have the two sides done next time I have a chance to work on it.
