[ENG] Construction 012: Stone pillars

24/01/12 | ۩ |


While the walls construction is going on, the four pillars still lay in its original condition of concrete structures.
In this early stage I had a few chances to work with stone, mostly as a test. Now it's time to make something real and justify the presence here at home of that box full of slate and marble.

Vault's corbels and brick pillars frames are the earlier stone elements I had to built.
After this first approach I can start with the construction of a stone pillar.



The method is very simple: I work the same way as building the walls, with the difference that the bricks are bigger and made of stone. Also the "mortar" is the same: the omnipresent vinilyc glue which all can paste and all can hold up. I only hope it will keep its properties unchanged in time and not crumble away in a few years...
