Ashlar Fine Masonry
In Ashlar Fine Masonry, all the stones are fine tooled, on all bed and side joints, and the faces are rendered perfectly true to the pattern desired. The height of the courses is never less than 30 cm. and generally all the courses are kept of the same height throughout the work. The height of the stones used is never less than their breadth and their length is never less than twice their height. The face stones are generally laid as header and stretcher alternately. For wall below 75 cm. in thickness, the through stones extend to the full thickness of wall. The bed and the side joints in this type of work should never exceed 3 mm. in thickness.
