This volume offers a range of step-by-step stonework and masonry projects for do-it-yourselfers of any skill level. The numbered how-to sequences are accompanied by colour photographs. The book is split into two major sections. The first, on techniques, covers splitting and dressing natural stone, applying stucco and stone veneer, working with glass block, and more. Using these techniques readers should be able to take on any project in the book. The second, on projects, is filled with practical designs to match a variety of yards. They include a brick barbecue, brick entryway pillars and arches, glass block privacy walls, decorative walkways, a stone driveway marker, and a mysterious "moon window".
