Create your own keystone!
4 Attachment(s)
Are you ready to set up your arch and would like a custom keystone?

Then create your own custom piece!!

Here's my keystone that I cast for my arch. It literally is a "key-stone."

The possibilities are endless when it comes to size, color, text, images, additions, etc.

Just go for it!!

It looks like it may, uh, interfere with certain body parts when using the oven.

I do like the keystone, though!

Bottle opener, cork screw and nut cracker all in one...:p

Re: Create your own keystone!
Hi Tscarborough and Brickie,

Actually it will not... I made sure of the measurements (double and triple checked). My oven entry ledge is going to stick out about 4" beyond the key, as I still have to set the stone facade on the ledge right above the keystone and my brick landing on top of that with a few more inches sticking out beyond that.

So the key will be "inset" from the final oven entry landing. Just keep reviewing my build from time to time and you'll see what I mean. This is a work in progress, the pics you see are not the final product.

So no, not a nut cracker, just a wine opener! :D
