SHOP WORK

Rubber based stencil and sandblast is the most common method used when doing lettering or adding the many designs seen in cemeteries. The hole size at the end of the sandblast nozzle as well as the amount of compressed air needed varies depending on the carving and area to be removed. The days of using chisels to carve tombstones are alive and well and is still needed to achieve different appearances and outcomes. Computers have taken the place of the drafting table though I still find myself for many hours with pencil in hand. Monuments may be the way I make my living but I’m one of the lucky ones; I still absolutely love what I do.
