Carving Work

These are some examples of floral finial carvings, from the old worn finial, the block of stone from which the new will be carved and new finials.

In days gone by masons would have hewed these finials completely by hand. Fortunately these days, we can use grinderettes, air tools, tungston tipped chisels to help us do the work quicker whilst retaining the quality and sharpness.
